Advising Notes

After every meeting with your advisor, they will upload notes to your student center.  These notes will include a summary of your conversation, an updated education plan so that you know which classes to take next and any other information you might need.  This may also include any "homework" with your next steps listed.

You can access these notes by logging into your student center and clicking on the Academic Progress tile, and then selecting "View Note" from the list of notes in the center of the screen.

Degree Progress Report (DPR)

​​​​​​You can use your degree progress report (DPR) to track your progress in your current program or pathway.  After running the DPR, you will be able to see how your classes apply to your program and what is remaining to complete. This system is not perfect and you should always verify with your advisor to ensure you are completing all necessary coursework for your degree.
