How Do I Finish Strong?

It is recommended to complete four advanced level SPuRS-approved activites in your junior year at Western Michigan University.

Reminder: Application for graduation typically takes place during the first semester of your senior year—so you must process your SPuRS Foundational Level audit as soon as you have earned two advanced level SPuRS activities from each pillar. You will be able to continue earning SPuRS after the audit has been approved.
