An academic career is more than classes and labs. It is all of the important paperwork and procedures necessary to keep you on track for that most important graduation day. This is more than working with you advisor on class loads and schedules. It also means being committed to getting the right paper work completed on time to be certain you are on track for that graduation day. The Bob Schieffer College of Communication’s Office of the Dean serves as a resource to students and faculty throughout your academic career to answer questions regarding degree plans, taking over 18 hours a semester, transfer hours in the degree, study abroad as it relates to the major, and intent to graduate information.
