To make sure your name is pronounced correctly, submit the phonetic spelling in the Qualtrics survey you receive or email no later than Friday, May 11, with the proper way for your name to be said as you walk across the stage.

Request a co-curricular transcript
The transcript, which lists your involvement outside the classroom, can give you an edge in obtaining employment, internships, graduate school or exploring career opportunities. Request yours on mySU.
