If you are offered a seat in a course, Diane Walton will contact you with permission to enroll. Once you receive permission to enroll, you MUST enroll within 48 hours or you will lose your seat in the course.

Advance Authorization to Enroll in GWS 640: Capstone Seminar in Gender and Women’s Studies (GWS Majors only):
GWS 640: Capstone Seminar in Gender and Women’s Studies requires authorization for all students. To be authorized, please complete this form.

When you have been authorized to enroll, you will receive an email from Diane Walton (dwalton@wisc.edu) confirming your authorization. Plan to complete the authorization form about a week before your enrollment date. Once you receive the confirmation email from Diane, you will have 1 week to enroll in GWS 640. Remember, when you receive the notification email that you have been authorized, you will still need to enroll in the course.

Graduation:
If you are graduating in May 2017, be sure to check your DARS. Near the top, you should see the phrase “all reqs complete pending final review.” This means that you have nearly completed your degree. Hooray!

If you are graduating, and you haven’t done this already (I am sure that all of you already have), Apply to Graduate in your Student Center. Doing this signals to the Office of the Registrar that they should audit your student record and give you the green light to graduate. When you do this, confetti will not fall from the ceiling, and the Office of the Registrar will likely not send you any kind of confirmation email, but don’t worry because we will celebrate your achievements at the Spring Graduation Reception!

Spring commencement is Saturday, May 13, 2017

Commencement Ceremonies

Don’t forget to tell your family and friends about the Gender and Women’s Studies and LGBTQ+ Studies Spring Graduation Reception Saturday, May 13 at 9:30 am in Sterling Hall. Join us for breakfast, spend some time with GWS faculty and staff, and we will send you off in style!
