Government regulations require that any student who has a Stafford Direct Loan (subsidized and unsubsidized) and/or Perkins Loan must complete exit counseling. Know What You Owe:  Join the Office of Financial Aid on Wednesday, April 20th, from 5 p.m.-6:30 p.m. in the LSC Jardine Room.  Michael Jones, V.P. of Education Finance at Citizens Bank, will discuss Direct Loan repayment options, how to contact your student loan servicer, understanding your loan debt, how to complete the required exit counseling, and much more.  Plan to attend if you’re graduating!

Students seeking employment should register in the Center for Career Services Office prior to leaving the University. Contact the Center for Career Services at 216.397.4237 for more information.

Students should check with the Business Office to make sure all balances are paid. You cannot participate in the ceremony, receive your diploma, or get a transcript without paying your balance. Check with the Cashier’s Office at 216.397.4494 for further account information.

All library fines must be paid and all books returned in order to obtain required library clearance. Contact the Grasselli Library at 216.397.4233 with any questions.

Try on your cap and gown soon after you pick them up in April to make sure they fit. Ill-fitting gowns can be replaced if you act early enough.

Make sure you have filled out a Graduation Application in the appropriate dean’s office. No application means no graduation!

Don’t wait until the last minute for anything. If it’s too late, it’s too late!
