Graduating? Be Sure

By Maya Rhodes

Is it that time of year already?

May seems to have come by particularly fast this semester. And for some of us, that means an end to the Rutgers-Camden chapter of our lives. What a long couple of years it’s been. Who could forget strolling from class to class, Starbucks in hand, and chatting with peers?

Perhaps some students are just glad to have made it out alive. With a total population of 6,343, the Camden campus will say goodbye to many of these students for good.

By now, all students who plan on graduating in May should’ve already applied for graduation, and had their senior review by an academic advisor. This is to ensure that you’ve met your major requirements.

According to the Rutgers-Camden website, “To be considered for graduation, CCAS/UC seniors must submit online diploma application through the Registrar’s Office. Check your class year, major(s), and minor(s) for accuracy. If they need to be changed contact the Registrar’s Office. The Office of Academic Advising deans (366-68 Friends St.) oversee the final certification process.

“With your major department they will review your general and major requirements, in most cases using Degree Navigator. The Office of Academic Advising will notify you by email of your application status,” says Rutgers-Camden website.

If this sounds a bit unfamiliar to you, then you must contact an academic advisor as soon as possible.

For all undergraduates who will attend, Rutgers-Camden plans to hold its commencement ceremony on Thursday, May 21. Tickets are free, and there’s no limit number of guest any one student can bring.

Times and Locations are as follows:
School of Business: 12:30 p.m. (Susquehanna Bank Center)
School of Nursing: 2:30 p.m. (Athletic and Fitness Center, Rutgers–Camden campus)
School of Law: 3 p.m. (Susquehanna Bank Center)
School of Arts and Sciences: 6:30 p.m. (Susquehanna Bank Center)
