Article 5: AARP Tax-Aide Program
The AARP Tax-Aide Program prepares income tax returns for the local community with special attention to people over the age of 60 with low income.
Plan to complete your intent to graduate form one year before graduation. You will not be penalized in any way if you take longer than one year to actually graduate! So if you plan to graduate Spring 09, your intent to graduate should be submitted by the end of this semester, [which is rapidly approaching]. Your intent to graduate form triggers correspondence from the Registrar’s office giving students guidance regarding courses still needed to complete all graduation requirements. This is an important time to have a complete and accurate list of remaining graduation requirements; it allows students two semesters to complete their work. Ultimately, students must advocate for themselves and not overly depend on their academic advisor.
The Application for Graduation form can be found on the Registrar's website, click on the link, Forms.
