Tips for Parenting a Senior

Remind Your Student about Graduation Deadlines

Your student needs to apply for graduation prior to the semester that he or she plans on graduating. Specific deadlines and the online application can be found at http://www.usu.edu/registrar/htm/graduation.

Be a Listening Ear

Senior year is a mix of nostalgia and preparation. Your student is looking to the future while still trying to soak up the remaining college experience. Your student may appreciate someone to listen to them reminisce, as well as someone with whom they can bounce ideas about graduate school, a career, where to live, and so forth.

Remind Your Student about Career Services

Your student can receive one-on-one career coaching, resume assistance, alumni networking, and much more from the USU Career Services office. Career services also offers entrance exams for graduate schools, a graduate school fair, and one of the largest career fairs in the state of Utah. In a recent poll sent to seniors on campus, almost seventy-percent of them had not utilized these services, help remind them.
