Senior Class Advising Guidelines
Meet with Dean Godin for an Individualized Graduation/Degree Assessment.
A Message from Dean Godin for Seniors
Welcome to your Senior Year! I look forward to working with you as you embark on your final semesters of undergraduate study at Providence College. Normally, senior year is filled with excitement and a small measure of anxiety as we begin the process of transitioning away from the College. For many, the uncertainty of the pandemic has left us feeling even more anxious than what is typical. I have been working with seniors for most of my career, and in the words of R.T. Bennett – “Believe in yourself. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know, and capable of more than you imagine.”
It is my role to monitor your academic progress and to ensure that you are working towards successful completion of your degree. My expectation is that you understand your degree requirements and are regularly monitoring your own progress in Cyberfriar.
I am available to work with you on any academic concerns, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Individualized assessment of degree progress/graduation requirements: credits, core, major, minor, and GPA
- Degree audit review and course adjustments
- Academic planning/course registration: fall, winter, and spring
- Extra courses – academic make-up plans
- Winter and summer course approval
- Cross Enrollment at RIC, URI, or CCRI/RI Language Consortium
- Course Withdrawal
- Pass/Fail Grade Election
- Academic Internships
- Study abroad and transfer course articulations
- Post PC career planning and graduate studies
Seniors, please use this general tip sheet to navigate senior year academic planning. It contains useful links and details about general degree/graduation requirements. It is recommended that you bring this resource to your meetings with your academic advisor and/or class dean to address any specific questions or concerns that you have about your degree status.
