Degree Applications Are Now Online
Since January 7, students have been applying for
their Spring 2004 degrees online, via MyUAlbany.
More convenient for students, it saves them a
trip to the Registrar’s Office to turn in a degree
application. Students submit their own information
online, eliminating paper forms and reducing errors
due to handwritten information. Undergraduates
have until Sunday, Feb. 15, to complete the online
degree application, and the deadline for graduate
degrees is April 1.
Another new function was added to MyUAlbany this
semester, allowing students to “swap classes”
rather than do separate transactions to “drop”
and “add” courses. “Swap” is a conditional drop/add
feature whereby the drop is not processed unless
the add is successful. Using this option, students
do not have to drop a course before they are sure
they can get a seat in another course.
