graduation question

  1. 0 How does this work? The deadline for June graduation is April. Can I apply if I am finishing my classes in April, but will have 1 elective class to finish in May, being taken somewhere else, but will be done prior to graduation in June? Or will not having that complete mean I don't meet the requirements?

    Not sure - I would call the registrar's office and ask. There is a limited window to apply for graduation for each semester. I would think you have to apply in order to graduate in June.

    Yeah, the cut off is April 21st. I'm just wondering if I still have 1 outstanding class when I apply, how that works. I need to take a cross cultural class still. The intersession class isn't until May. I don't want to take Fashion, so I'm not sure what else to do besides the intersession. I thought about taking it through Rio Salado, but I'll be doing Chem, then stupid statistics in the winter along with a 5 week nursing course each time. Unless I break down and do a 5 week statistics, instead of 15 weeks. Ugh, so confusion, lol.

    I am doing with 5 week stats class along with excellence. Stats isn't easy but I am actually enjoying it! Have heard that fashion class is hideous. Take cultural anth during intercession this winter. PM mtsteelhorse and ask her where she took it.....

    That was my plan was to do cultural during the intercession, but it's not offered for winter. The next one wouldn't be until May.

    I was going to do stats over 15 weeks and then take a nursing class with it. But if I may push graduation to August and just bust out a 5 week one. I'm horrible at math, so really nervous to take it, lol. I don't think I could handle it with another class.

    I wouldn't worry about Stats.... it is time consuming and you have to stay on top of it, it is not really that bad. I was scared to death about it, I hadn't had math for 30+ years. But I found that I could get it . If you can take Prof K, she is really good and the course is very organized. My TA was amazing and really answered questions and gave helpful websites to see it explained in another way. It actually has turned out to be my favorite course I've taken so far.

    I have to second the recommendation for Prof K! She rocks!! I am math deficient and I am actually doing pretty well in the class. No TA's this time, the Prof is doing it all but she is quick with a response and if you don't understand it - she will post more examples.

    What if my classes finish the second quarter in fall? Can I still graduate and start my msn in January or do I have to graduate at a certain time?

    This January? Did you apply for graduation? Having a transcript that says you have met the requirements is a huge part of the battle.

    Thanks guys, hopefully I can get her. I think I'm going to look at rearranging my schedule and just do it in 5 weeks.

    The graduation deadline for the fall was October 1st, and the next graduation will be in the spring. Perhaps you can get accepted with your transcript; however you would not have a degree conferral date until June i think.

    I have plenty of time. I was just trying to plan out my semesters and wanted to see when I would actually have my bsn to get into a msn program. I didn't want to have to double up all crazy just to be finished by the summer but my advisor said you can apply even if you aren't finished with the last semesters classes. I hope she's not lying. They seem to get confused sometimes

    LOL - you might want to check that! I don't think they will accept you until you graduate. May not have to have degree in hand, but you will need to graduate first before applying. Lots of confusion over that ....
