File to Graduate
The Registrar's Office has sent letters to prospective graduates with instructions and information on how to file online for graduation. Once the student has signed in, the graduation application form is linked to the student's account.

The deadline dates for filing are Sept. 30 for May 2012 commencement; Feb. 1, 2012, for August 2012 graduation (no ceremony); and April 1, 2012, for December 2012 commencement. Students are not automatically placed on a graduation list; it is the student's responsibility to make sure that he or she files online by the appropriate deadline or contacts the Registrar's Graduation Area for help.

Scholarships Available
It's not too early to begin thinking about scholarships for the 2012-13 academic year. More than 200 scholarships will be available later this fall.

Copies of the scholarship newspaper will be available late November in most academic departments, the Penfield Library and from the Office of Alumni and University Development. Most deadlines are Feb. 1.

December Commencement Is a Sweet Occasion
The Oswego Alumni Association will host a Commencement Eve Dessert Reception and Senior Toast for all December graduates and their families at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 16.

Join us and celebrate the Class of 2011's passage from students to alumni, complete with an elegant dessert buffet, coffee, tea and a champagne toast.

And check out other OAA senior services online.

The next WinterSession is slated for Jan. 3 through 20. The intensive three-week courses give upperclassmen a chance to catch up or get ahead.

This year, Oswego's WinterSession will be fully online. About 40 courses will be available using the ANGEL course management system. Students will be able to complete their coursework from any location.

For a listing of available courses, check the Division of Extended Learning website in early October or call 315-312-2270.

A.S.K. for Career Help
If your student is looking for help in exploring a career, the Oswego Alumni Association has help. Our A.S.K. (Alumni Sharing Knowledge) program links current students with alumni mentors who can answer questions about a career, offer a job-shadowing experience or help make connections. Your student can be part of Oswego's powerful alumni network.
