Welcome Class of 2018!
College Graduation Updates
Another year, another round of graduations! You all continue to make us so proud and we’d like to celebrate that by sharing you success with the rest of the Carmen community. Now that you have graduated from a post-secondary program or by now maybe even a masters program, please feel free to share a graduation photo along with the type of degree you completed.
Lastly for the new 2018 college grads, please make sure you send me an unofficial transcript so I can update your academic history. Graduate Dropbox
2017-2018 school year grades
Grades are due! These grades help me to better advise you as you begin to plan for your future after college. So please make sure you complete the End of Semester Grades survey. Put “Spring 2018” for the term since that is when you are submitting these grades. Lastly make sure you email me a copy of your transcript.
