Be certain that you will have finished (including grading by the instructor) ALL coursework no later than the first day of finals in the quarter you wish to graduate.
Contact Meghan Lancaster, our ExPharmD program coordinator, at (email@example.com or (206) 543-9427) to let her know of your intention to graduate and whether or not you wish to participate in the June Graduation Recognition Ceremony. For questions regarding your graduation status contact Dr. Weber.
Prepare an reflective update to your Portfolio and submit it to the program director by the end of the quarter during which you wish to graduate. This summary document (2 or 3 pages) should include an honest, personal, and reflective assessment of what you have learned by participating in the program. You may want to review the original Student Handbook on Prior Learning Assessment: Instructions for Portfolio Development to get some ideas about how to document your learning. Forms you may review to reflect on this summary include (do NOT provide these forms again, we have them):
This Portfolio Update is an outcome measurement tool. Think about how you have professionally evolved in the ExPharmD program. We would like to be able to demonstrate that the degree is earned and carries significant and demonstrable learning with it.
The Participant Summary Experience Self-Evaluation Forms you completed after each of your nine pharmacotherapy weekend workshops, and
The Experiential Learning Proposal Forms and the Experiential Learning Assessment Forms prepared for the practicum.
There is no perfect format for this update. We want you to reflect on what you learned in the program (not the individual courses) and how that changed your practice (or not). We do NOT want a summary of what you did in each course.
When you have submitted your Portfolio Update, completed all necessary coursework, and grades have been assigned by the instructors, the Registrar's office will be notified and your diploma will be awarded.
