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.
