Senior Year Checklist

Class of 2020, reference this checklist throughout your senior year to confirm that you are on track to graduate in May.​

  • Review your Degree Audit Report in SSOL.

  • Make sure you will have enough credits (124 for College students, 128 for Engineering students) to graduate.

  • Meet virtually with your CSA adviser to confirm you are on track to graduate.

  • Connect with your academic department adviser to confirm you are on track to complete your major or concentration. Your adviser can also assist if your major, minor or concentration information is out of date in SSOL.

  • Confirm that all of your grades and/or incomplete grades from previous semesters are posted and that you have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher.

  • Pay the balances on all of your accounts, and check SSOL to ensure that no holds have been placed.

  • All students whose financial aid packages include federal loans are required to complete an exit interview with Student Financial Services via SSOL.

Once all of that is out of the way, get ready to attend...

  • Register for Class Day by Saturday, April 25 at 11:59 p.m. EDT, using the personal link in the email you received from GradZone to provide details as to how you would like your name to appear in the digital program and to be displayed on screen when your name is announced.

  • Register for University Commencement in the spring and request tickets for your guests if you plan to attend.

  • Update your “Diploma Address” information in SSOL, and double-check the spelling of your name. Information from SSOL will be used for both the Class Day program and for shipping your diploma!

  • If you are earning your bachelor’s degree and still wish to purchase regalia to have, you can order online directly through Oakhall by Monday, May 4 and have it shipped to you directly.

And prepare for life after Columbia!
