Finish strong!

If you are a senior, note that the department release is a required step for graduation. To request for a major or minor release, please fill out either a MAJOR Release Request or MINOR Release Request form, preferably in the term prior to your graduation term. Double check to make sure you'll have enough total credits and upper-level credits for major/minor completion. You will also need to apply for graduation and wait for the results of your Official Degree Audit. The administrative pipeline to graduation is a multi-step process; you will not graduate unless you complete every step. Information on this page will help you make sure you don't miss a step.

You may know what kind of job you want or may be in the process of searching or preparing for graduate study. Conversely, you may have no idea what you want to do next. That's OK! Be sure to make appointments with instructors, advisors, and mentors for guidance. The Career Center hosts a variety of career expos and information fairs relevant to graduating seniors. 

Graduating seniors may also find the Alumni Association helpful in post-graduation planning. The Alumni Association has several career resources and mentorship programs to help you access the University of Michigan's worldwide alumni-base!
