Any active MSUM student who is in good academic standing (is not on academic probation).
Students may apply a maximum of two engagement activities that are required by the major. The two activities must be in different categories (learning, service, or citizenship).
Because the overall framework and goals of the program are shared among the colleges, students may substitute a suggested activity from a different college if that better meets their individual needs. Students should consult with their advisor in determining the list of activities for the proposal form. Students and advisors can contact their Dean with any questions.
One of the six activities must involve working as part of a team.
Students who change majors and move from one college to another will retain the engagement activities that have been completed, but will finish the program requirements in the college that houses the new major.
Transfer students may apply a maximum of two engagement activities completed at their previous institution(s), one in the category of service and one in the category of citizenship. Students must be able to obtain signatures on the activity forms for these previously completed activities.
Yes. If you have completed activities that fulfill the different areas and can gather the needed signatures, you can complete this program. Contact your Dean for details.
Your advisor will help you to fill out your proposal form, and sign your papers as you complete each step. It is NOT your advisor's job to handle your paperwork - each student is responsible for driving the process and completing all paperwork.
You should try to finish the six activities and turn in your Self-Reflection paper and Resume by mid-semester of your final term at MSUM. This will give the Records Office enough time to process your paperwork and note this distinction in the Graduation program.
The benefits for you are twofold. First, the structure of this program ensures that you will have a broad range of experiences that enhance your academic program- you're doing great things! Second, this distinction is permanently noted on your transcript, giving you the opportunity to explain what your participation in this program means as you go on to job and graduate school interviews.
