To file for graduation, whether for the master’s degree (MS) or the certificate of advanced study in Archives and Records Management (CAS), you must complete an application for graduation which is located on the Registrar’s website.
If you are completing both the master’s and the certificate, you must file two separate applications indicating the MS and the CAS. For the MS, you should put Library and Information Science as your major and leave the ‘concentration’ field blank.
Here is the link to the Registrar’s webpage. http://www.liu.edu/CWPost/About/Offices/Registrar/Graduation.aspx
If you are transferring in any credits from another school, we will need official transcripts. They should be addressed to Gerry Kopczynski, The Palmer School, LIU Post, 720 Northern Blvd, Brookville, NY 11548.
Please download the graduation application and return the completed form to Gerry Kopczynski via email, scan or fax; she will forward the application to the Registrar’s office. She prefers to have a copy so that she could review your file to ensure all is in order for you to graduate. If you have already sent in your application to the Registrar, forward your name to Gerry so she can maintain a list of graduates. Remember to complete one form for the Master’s and a second form for the certificate in advanced studies in archives and records management.
All graduates of the Palmer School qualify for public librarian certification. The link below will take you to the State Education webpage where you will find the application and information on certification. If you return the application to Gerry with a check made out to the State Education Department, dated January 15, 2014, she will send the application with an attached degree –noted transcript to Albany after the January 2014 conferral date.
If you have any questions, please contact Gerry Kopczynski, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information on filing for graduation is sent to to kiosk every semester.
