Major Certification Form: Used to identify and track the courses you have taken and will be taking to complete your major. The form, which can be accessed through your portfolio, must be signed by an authorized advisor in your major department.   Use it now to plan for senior year.

Graduation does not just happen; you must make it happen! It is important that you fully understand Wesleyan's graduation requirements (concentration[major],credits, GPA, residency) and that you are able to interpret your academic record in light of these requirements. Remember, you are responsible for your own graduation and must fulfill all graduation requirements by the end of the Spring 2014 semester in order to participate in the Commencement ceremony in May 2014.
