Degree Petitions-Summer and Fall 2009

Its time to complete your degree petitions. 

Process for undergraduate students

You must meet with Elizabeth Miller between Monday, March 2 –  Wednesday, March 11th to complete your degree petition if you are graduating in Summer or Fall 2009.

Please follow these instructions.

1. Sign up for a 30 minute appointment time at http://www.advising.gatech.edu and choose “degree petition” for the reason you want to set up an appointment.  As always, appointments only show 2 weeks at a time, so  new appointments  will continue to  be posted.  

2. Before your scheduled degree petition meeting, stop by the PUBP bulletin board (ground floor DM Smith) to pick up ONE degree petition packet. Read the directions and fill out all the forms BEFORE the degree petition meeting. The forms will require you to look up your transcript on OSCAR.  The packet will take you about 30 minutes to complete.  Packets are available now.

3. Meet with me (Elizabeth 🙂 for your scheduled degree petition meeting to complete the degree petition process. Bring your completed degree petition packet with you.

Remember; do not wait until the last minute to set up your meeting. 

ARE YOU COMPLETING A MINOR, CERTIFICATE OR SECOND MAJOR?

MINORS

If you have completed a minor with another department on campus, you must meet with that department so they can complete your minor form BEFORE meeting with me.  Most minor forms can be downloaded from the registrars’ website under students, minors: http://www.registrar.gatech.edu/students/minors/20067minors.php

You must bring this form for me to sign and then you submit your minor form WITH your degree petition to the registrar.

CERTIFICATES

If you have completed a certificate with another department on campus, you must meet with that department so they can complete your certificate form BEFORE meeting with me.  Certificate forms are available from the specific department in which you completed the certificate.  Certificate forms DO NOT go to the registrar, but need to be signed by the department granting the certificate and myself. They are then submitted to the department granting the certificate. Certificates are mailed to you after graduation.

SECOND MAJORS

If you have completed a second major with another department on campus, you must meet with that department to complete a second degree petition.  Check with that department to find out its degree petition deadlines.  That deadline might be earlier than the PUBP deadline.

I look forward to meeting with you.

-Elizabeth

One response to “Degree Petitions-Summer and Fall 2009

  1. For a topic as simple as degree petitions, I don’t think I’ve ever received as much misinformation from various sources (I mainly refer to other students).

    I know my own deadline for STaC, but the tendency of different departments to set their own deadlines can be rather confusing to the student populace.

    However, I guess if you can’t figure out when to turn in your degree petition, you probably have some bigger issues at hand… 🙂
