Getting to Graduation

Information for the Seniors in the Liberal Studies Program at The University of Louisville.

Admission

Admission to the Liberal Studies Program requires approval of your written proposal. Until Dr. Hale approves your written proposal, you are a prospective major.If you want to graduate within the next semester or two and you have not yet submitted your proposal begin this process immediately!

Advising

One of the advantages of being part of a smaller program is your advisor's focus on you. Don't be shy about calling or making an appointment; Liberal Studies majors average 13.7 advising contacts before graduation!

Planning to Graduate Soon?

Even if you plan to graduate several semesters from now, please be sure to meet with the Liberal Studies Advisor BEFORE your final semester so that we might catch any "missing" hours or courses.

Degree checks are available for approved majors only.

Application for Degree

Online applications for degree are available through ULink.

Verify that your personal info, including contact information, is current.

The deadline for degree applications will be early in your final semester. As a safeguard, it's a good idea to send Sarah an email, letting her know you've applied for degree.

During that final semester, you may be asked to

  1. complete a Student Opinion Survey
  2. schedule an informal exit interview with Dr. John Hale.
