Alumni Services

Graduates! Report your career placement here!

ALL recent graduates are asked to notify the Office of Polar Careers during spring semester of your graduating year about your career status regardless of whether you have or have not accepted a placement. This allows us to continue to provide support to you until November after your graduation date. At that time, if you wish to retain your active status with Polar Careers, request Active Alumni Services.

After spring semester, if you have not yet accepted a placement, please notify the Polar Careers Office when you DO accept an opportunity.
