4th Year Checklist

Here are a few things to consider and discuss with your advisor:
  • Are my final classes confirmed to meet all requirements?
  • Have I already applied for graduation?
  • Do I understand the process for celebrating at commencement?
  • What resources are available for me to locate possible jobs?

To help bring your academic journey to its exciting conclusion, make an appointment to meet with your advisor!

  1. Academic advising check-in!

    Meet with your academic advisor to discuss your semester progress, available academic resources and opportunities, and confirm graduation status and/or future semester classes as indicated on your DegreeWorks plans.

  2. Apply to graduate!

    Apply for graduation through myUTSA Account by the deadline. Make sure to save a copy of your confirmation number.

  3. Review your graduation audit in DegreeWorks!

    Review your graduation audit with your advisor and confirm any outstanding course substitutions with your assigned advisor. DegreeWorks is a web-based tool that provides real-time advice on degree progression. This system is designed to aid and facilitate academic advising, but is not intended to replace face-to-face advising sessions.

  4. Consider completing an internship!

    Completing an internship related to your major might be the icing on the cake for closing out your degree (depending on your program).

  5. Consider applying to graduate school!

    Gather information about potential graduate programs, take the required entrance exam, such as the GRE, LSAT, MCAT or GMAT, and apply to graduate school.

  6. Visit Career Services!

    Visit UTSA Career Services for extra assistance with your job search. Did you know you will always have access to Career Services programs even as an alum?

  7. Help us help you!

    Stay informed of the many campus resources available to you in order to make your college career a success.
