Other Important Considerations

Preparing for Graduation

It is your responsibility to make the kind of progress in your major that will ensure your graduation. Be sure to go over your course audit with your advisor during the spring of your junior year, so that you have a clear idea of exactly what requirements remain for you to fulfill as a senior. Any questions or problems that your advisor cannot deal with should be referred to the Director of Undergraduate Studies.

Give some consideration to which professors from whom you might need letters of recommendation before the fall semester of your senior year. Recommendations are as important as your overall cumulative average, as important as the grades from classes in your major.

Academic Integrity

Any form of cheating or plagiarism is considered to be a serious offense by the department. Such offenses will be reported to the Department Chairperson and to the appropriate Dean, as required by university policy. For more information, see University Policies on the Student Services web site, or see the section on academic integrity in The Boston College Academic Catalog.
