Get ready for graduation push

 Get ready for the big push – the graduation push is coming.

As part of the ongoing efforts to help students understand the value of earning an associates degree, SAC has various events in the fall and spring semesters to remind students about opportunities after SAC.

Students with 45+ credits should begin planning to transfer to a four-year college/university;  and 60 hours will have you ready  to graduate with an associate degree.
 

“Over the past few months we have made hundreds of calls to students who already have enough credits to graduate from SAC,” said Vice President Robert Vela. “We want as many students as possible to be successful, and we know it is our job to help them by providing opportunities like the Transfer Fair.”

The Fall Transfer Fair will be 9 a.m. to noon on Monday, in the Fiesta Room Loftin Student Center. About 40 universities and colleges will be available to provide information to SAC students about how to transfer.

“It is important for students who are thinking about transferring to get an early start at looking at their options,” said Transfer Coordinator Rosa Maria Gonzalez. “Some students who are eligible to transfer don’t know they can get a four-year degree until they meet with a us.”

There will be a graduation table during the Transfer Fair to answer questions about the SAC graduation process. Students interesting in graduating are required to complete the Graduation Application form. Information can be found online at www.alamo.edu/sac/graduation.

The deadline is Wednesday, Oct. 31 to apply for fall graduation. Fall graduates may walk the stage at the spring commencement ceremony that is Saturday, May 11, 2013. There are no fees connected with graduation – the ceremony, application, diploma, and cap and gown are all free.

At this year’s commencement ceremony a record number of graduates – 945 – walked the stage.  More than 2,300 students received degrees for fall 2011 and spring/summer 2012. The spring commencement ceremony marked the first time thatravis Gradst Travis Early College High School was included and some 51 Travis students received an associate degree before they got their high school diplomas.


Graduation Push Week includes:

• The Distinguished Graduates program that honors a promising student in each department will take place again this year. Vice President Dr. Vela will soon announce  information to chairs regarding the nomination process.

• The College Executive Team will be out-and-about on campus Oct. 29-Nov. 2 in their caps and gowns to promote graduation.

• Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to wear their “Don’t just transfer…graduate!” buttons to help raise awareness of this important topic.

Students with questions about graduation or transferring should contact their advisor or the Transfer Center.
