The listings are posted online. The deadline to apply is Feb. 1. To request a scholarship newspaper be sent to your home, send your full name and mailing address to alumni@oswego.edu with "Scholarships" in the subject line.

Copies of the scholarship newspaper are available in most academic departments, Penfield Library and from the Office of Alumni Relations and University Development.

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.

Students must file for December 2012 graduation by April 1. The deadline to file for May 2013 graduation is Oct. 1.

Note that degree candidates are not automatically placed on a graduation list; it is the student's responsibility to make sure he or she files online by the appropriate deadline or contacts the Registrar's Graduation Area for help. Please note: Students must file by the deadline dates in order to be sure that their names will be printed in the Commencement program.

May Days
Future graduates can start planning for May 12 Commencement by making early reservations for the Torchlight Ceremony and Dinner May 11. The ceremony allows the graduating class to come together one last time as they are welcomed into the Oswego Alumni Association.

For more information or to make dinner reservations call 315-312-2258 or send email.

Consider making a donation to the Class of 2012 gift in honor of your graduating senior. Gifts made by March 1 will be printed in the Commencement program.

Summer Sessions
While most students take their summer break to enjoy the warmer months, others will continue on with their studies by registering for intensive three-, six- and 12-week courses that will allow them to earn up to three credits.

The next Summer Sessions are slated for May 21 through Aug. 10. About 35 courses from across the college's programs will be available at Oswego as well as the Metro Center in Syracuse, Education Center in Phoenix and on the Web.
