Please Be Advised (PBA) Podcasts are not really like podcasts at all. These media morsels started out as audio-only recordings, similar to podcasts. Comprised of a group of advisors, known as the “Pod-Squad”, they would meet bi-weekly (often with guests) to record a series of episodes featuring a particular topic of interest for students. Later, these recordings were transformed into video with pop-out graphics to accentuate certain key elements. Enjoy!

Have you ever wondered why some students get denied for graduation? Let this pod cast episode dazzle your mind and satisfy your curiosity! We discuss the most overlooked graduation requirements and recommendations for getting you on track for that special day when you hit “Apply for Graduation” on SOLAR.
Remember, when you apply for graduation, SOLAR is asking “When will you be finishing all of your requirements?” If you select Spring or Summer you will walk in the May ceremony. If you select Fall or Winter you will walk in the December ceremony.
