Certificate E-Portfolio Submission

After a student has successfully completed all required courses with an overall GPA of 3.0 or better and has removed all Incomplete grades from the student’s record, the student can submit their Certificate E-Portfolio for formal assessment. Courses taken in the graduation semester must be successfully completed during the semester.

The Certificate E-Portfolio should be submitted by 11:59 PM on the following dates: Fall: November 1; Winter: March 1; Spring/Summer: June 20 or August 15. (Students who complete their coursework Spring Term and wish to graduate at the end of June must complete and submit their e-portfolios by June 20. Students who wish to graduate Summer Term or Spring/Summer Term must complete and submit their e-portfolios by August 15.)

All required elements of the e-portfolio must be submitted by the due date to be reviewed for that semester. If the e-portfolio is not submitted on time, you cannot graduate until successful completion of the e-portfolio requirement in a subsequent semester.

Each semester, shortly after the due dates for graduation application, graduating students are given access to a semester-specific Certificate E-Portfolio Site. The site appears in a box right above their current Blackboard classes on the student's Blackboard homepage. The deadlines for graduation application are posted regularly on both the SLIS and WSU websites. The student has 10-20 days, depending on the semester, after the graduation application due date to submit all the required certificate e-portfolio documents through the Blackboard Certificate E-Portfolio Site. Spring/Summer and Summer graduates may have longer time. Please use the due dates mentioned above as guidance. This submission process is identical to submitting an assignment through a normal Blackboard course.

After the SLIS faculty has graded all of the portfolios an email will be sent out to the student that indicates the final assessment of their e-portfolio and what, if any, action is required on the student's part. Students can check Blackboard for their results.
