Congratulations! It is a special time as you approach the completion of your degree, and faculty members in the College of Health and Human Sciences are very proud of you. As a graduate of the College, you will receive college and alumni newsletters as well as be invited to alumni events during the years to come. I'm pleased to share that the College of Health and Human Sciences, in recognition of your graduation, has paid for your first year's membership to the K-State Alumni Association. We hope you will keep in touch, too, because your success will help us plan programs for those that follow you.
Three semesters (approximately 85 hours completed) prior to graduation, a graduation check is performed by the dean's office. This check is done to ensure that all requirements will be met so you can graduate at the time you desire.
Ultimately, a student is responsible for assuring their plans, goals and accomplishments are met, especially fulfilling all of the requirements of the curriculum in which they are enrolled. It is important to work closely with your advisor during your final semesters.
Awards and Honors
Prior to commencement each semester, the college celebrates its outstanding senior undergraduates at the College of Health and Human Sciences Commencement Graduation Honors and Student Awards Celebration. The invited students are those who will be receiving university scholastic honors or who have been chosen as student commencement speaker or outstanding seniors by their program. The college's events coordinator will notify students receiving awards prior to the event. All questions about the awards reception should be directed to the events coordinator, Chelsi Medved.
