Writing Your Academic Statement

There are many effective ways to write an Academic Statement and many effective ways to get there. Ultimately, the best way to write your Academic Statement is the way that works for you.

You will work on your Academic Statement at least once each year as you prepare to submit your annual revision. When you are ready to graduate, you will finalize your Academic Statement for your transcript. Your approach and priorities will be different depending on whether you're working on a revision or your final version.
