Summer and Fall Graduates:
Graduation checks for Summer 2016 and Fall 2016 graduates will take place April 18-29. Scheduling begins next week.
A graduation check is an optional appointment with the FACS graduation officer to review your progress towards graduation and confirm you will complete all requirements the semester in which you plan to graduate. A graduation check is not required to graduate. As long as you apply for graduation during the semester in which you plan to graduate, your record will be evaluated and, if you have satisfied all requirements, you will be cleared for graduation.
To schedule a graduation check, send an email with your availability to Kelly King.
Please note, a graduation check does not replace a regular advising appointment; you will not be cleared to register during a graduation check.
If you have any questions, please contact the Student Success and Advising Center.
The Student Success and Advising Center (SSAC) is still offering Peer-to-Peer Resume Critiques now through the end of spring semester classes, by two trained interns to FACS students on Wednesdays in or near 112 Dawson Hall (look for the resume critique sign). Sydney and Yana, SSAC interns and HDFS majors, are here to help you submit resumes for internships, jobs, graduate school, and more. Resume critique hours are:
9:00-10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Spring and Summer Graduates:
You are invited to attend FACS Convocation on Friday, May 13, at 3:00 p.m. at The Classic Center located at 300 North Thomas Street, Athens, GA 30601.
FACS Convocation is a more personal ceremony for all graduation candidates of the College of Family and Consumer Sciences. We hope that you will give us the opportunity to recognize you at this time. Family members are invited to attend. The event is free, but registration is required.
Please click the button below to complete the registration form no later than Friday, May 6.
We hope to see you there!

In addition to this significant amount of money, winners are also invited to an expense paid GALA event in New York City and an opportunity to meet and interview with leading Fashion Companies. Imagine having breakfast with the CEO of Macy’s or Nordstrom’s!
There are over 230 scholarships available and UGA doubled our award winners this past year.
Some schools have as many as 30 award winners. UGA should be among the largest winners.
One of our students had the highest score of all applicants this past year. You could too!
