Graduation Application Example

Hi Everyone!

We have had some requests by advisors for a visual of what the online graduation application looks like. Attached is an example of a graduation application page by page. Hopefully this will be of assistance as students call and ask questions. Always feel free to refer them to the Graduation Office if they are having any issues or concerns with the application and we will be happy to help.

Just a reminder that in order for a student to graduate they need to go to their Wolverine Track and click on the “Apply to Graduate” link which will take them to the online graduation application. The deadline for Fall 2015 Graduation is October 2nd.

Thanks for all you do!
