Award Prizes Awards and Class Day Memo

TO: Department Chairs, Program Directors, Department Managers, and Program Managers

FROM: Jill Dolan, Dean of the College

RE: Academic Prizes, Awards, and Class Day 2022


April 21, 2022

 Colleagues, I’m writing to remind you of the process for requisitioning undergraduate prizes and awards for Class Day and Commencement 2022. 

Please submit the names of prize- and award-winners using the online form available at this secure link: Access to the form will be provided to department and program managers as well as undergraduate administrators.

The online form will open on Monday, April 25. You can view the balance available in the prize fund through the portal. The form will close at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 18.

Students will receive monetary awards via electronic fund transfers (EFTs, which are direct deposits). Funds will be transferred to the account the student has recorded with the University. Students who have not registered for direct deposit will receive a check from Financial Services at the home address they have on file. Students will receive an email in late May to notify them of the EFT or mailed check.

Do note that prize certificates will be delivered to departments prior to Class Day (May 23). 


As you know, the window of time in which prize recommendations and payments are processed and certificates are prepared is narrow. We appreciate your efforts to requisition awards promptly.

 For your reference, I’m also including here the updated ODOC guidance for recommended prize amounts, effective with Class Day and Commencement this year. Should you have questions about the awards process, please contact Vicky Glosson ( or 609-258-7379).

 Thanks so much for your attention and cooperation.

 Warm best,

Jill Dolan
