Academic Statement

Academic Statement

The Academic Statement is an important part of your official Evergreen transcript. Periodically throughout your years at the College, you will have an opportunity to reflect on your education in writing. After graduation, your Academic Statement will introduce your undergraduate career to readers of your final transcript.

Beginning during Orientation Week when you first enroll, you will write about learning that matters to you. You’ll revise this document annually. During the quarter that you graduate, you will submit your final Academic Statement, which is limited to 750 words, to your final transcript. Over the course of your education, you will decide how best to document how you are earning your bachelor's degree from Evergreen.

Throughout each academic year, the College sets aside time for students to craft their Academic Statements. The College’s faculty introduce students to this practice during Orientation Week. During fall quarter, all programs of 8 credits or more dedicate time for concentrated work on Academic Statements. During winter and spring, the faculty host All-Campus Mentoring Days to help students plan, reflect on, and document their Evergreen education.

If you have any questions about the Academic Statement, please contact Nancy Koppelman, Project Director for the Academic Statement Initiative and Member of the Faculty.
