My Ticket Out: Undergraduate Application to Graduate

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 13 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

I’ve completed more then 90 credit hours and thus I’ve reached the point at my time at Mines when I can submit my Undergraduate Application to Graduate. It’s actually a pretty simple form. Two sides. Takes less then five minutes to fill out. I envisioned it being a climactic event with my paperwork undergoing rigorous scrutiny.

It wasn’t.

The registrar asked how she could help.
I said that I was turning in my Undergraduate Application to Graduate.
I handed my form over and she quickly looked at both sides, proclaimed that it looked complete and stamped it with her giant “Paperwork Received” stamp.

I hope the actual graduation ceremony is more exciting than this.
