We are committed to seeing you graduate on time.
What does that commitment mean? We want you to work closely with an academic advisor to plan each step of your education. Whether you need help selecting classes or figuring out how to study abroad, Alma faculty and Center for Student Opportunity staff are here to help you.
In addition, the Alma Commitment requires you to attend a number of planning events and workshops that focus on topics such as identifying and applying for internships and résumé planning. Annual planning days, known as All-Class Conferences, also offer guidance at crucial points during your Alma experience.
These events begin during Orientation Week, so you have the opportunity to play an active role in planning your personal and professional goals right from the start. Along the way, whether you’re concerned about graduate school applications or have questions about financial aid, we promise to keep you on that path to graduation.
