Notices to Graduates
The Student Life office will send out emails beginning in early March to provide graduates with specific instructions. We primarily use the graduates’ Sage email accounts, but when provided, we sent messages to students’ personal email accounts as well. In addition, general information that was distributed via email will also be posted on this page. Contact the Office of Student Life at 518-244-2207 or [email protected] with any questions.
