Welcome to your senior year at Queens College!
Congratulations, you are a senior (90+ completed credits)! We want to make sure that everything is in place so you can graduate as you expect and move on to your next academic and professional goals. When thinking about advising this year, you want to consider two areas: required major/optional minor requirements and Queens College’s general education requirements. Now is the time for you to double-check with your academic department(s) and your Degree-Works Student audit (accessible via the CUNY portal) to make sure that you are ready to graduate. As a senior, you will have several sources of advice: your major/minor advisor(s), academic advisors in the Academic Advising Center (Kiely Hall 217), and career counselors in the Office of Career Development & Internships (Frese Hall 213).
The senior year is often the busiest year, but also the most exciting as students are completing their majors, writing theses, getting a taste of the working world via internships or student teaching, and applying to graduate schools or looking for jobs. Approaching graduation and preparing for life after undergraduate studies can be daunting. The Academic Advising Center created the Senior Corner site to help seniors navigate their last year/semester at the college.
The Senior Corner develops, coordinates, and facilitates resources, activities, and events to celebrate undergraduate student attainment of senior status. The site also helps seniors cope with their impending transition out of the college setting and into the workplace or graduate/professional schools.
