HELPFUL OBJECTIVE

Here you'll find several objectives that will help you stay on track and help you successfully obtain your degree to begin your career.

FRESHMEN

Before you begin your classes, make sure you understand and fulfill the technology requirements. As a freshman, you should begin researching majors or careers you are interested in and explore student organizations.

TECHNOLOGY REQUIREMENTS (PDF)

SOPHOMORES

By the time you begin your sophomore year, you should narrow your choices down to one or two majors. Throughout the year, we recommend you join and participate in a student organization and complete your pre-business requirements.

JUNIORS

Once you begin your junior year, it is advised you declare your major and possible minor. This is when you should secure your internship and confirm your course plan to keep you on track for graduation. If you are looking to get your internship or an off-campus job, make sure you fill out a Curricular Practical Training Request.

Seniors

During your senior year, confirm your graduation plans (courses, GPA, application), and begin job interviewing or consider graduate school. If you would like to stay and work in the United States, make sure you fill out an Optional Practical Training Request Form.

Apply for graduation through FlashLine by the published deadline. For questions regarding graduation eligibility, contact Amelia Corrigan.
