Apply for Graduation: A Must Do, and Degree Checkout Status
Undergraduate Students: You must apply for graduation in your HUB Student Center (via MyUB).
You will only be able to select the Graduation Terms that are available to apply for, and you will not be able to apply for your degree more than one year in advance. You cannot be in an “Intended” plan and must be officially accepted into a major before you can apply for your degree.
Students who will be receiving two degrees (BA & BS, BFA & BA) and students in a combined degree program must apply for both degrees at the same time.
New Information: Your Degree Conferral Date (the date your degree is awarded) is now in the HUB as a “Graduation Term”; the final term (semester) before your conferral. Please be careful when choosing these dates as they can affect your ability to register and possibly your financial aid eligibility.
The Scharps Legal Essay Competition (please see attached) is open to juniors and seniors (or underclassmen who have that status based on credit hours) at state-operated campuses who are interested in legal issues, or are interested in pursuing a career in the legal field. The topic of this year’s essay competition is Student Rights in College Athletics.
The Scharps Award is offered in accordance with a gift accepted by the State University of New York Board of Trustees under the will of Hannah S. Hirschhorn to establish the Benjamin and David Scharps Memorial Fund.
One award of $1,500 will be presented to the student who has written the best 2,000 word essay describing the role and relevance of law in dealing with a current legal issue. A second award of $1,000 will be presented to the runner-up.
Students must submit their essays and application cover sheets to the Office of Fellowships and Scholarships by 5:00pm on Tuesday, January 17, 2017.
Contact the Office of Fellowships and Scholarships at email@example.com to request an application.
