Student Services Transformation Updates

Academic Advising

Assisting students with understanding how their course work meets degree requirements for a timely and successful graduation.

Final Update

Academic Advising had a successful system “Go-Live” in June 2011 (for all undergraduate programs and plans).  Students and staff can now produce the Academic Requirements, “What If” and Transfer Credit reports (which have replaced DARS).  The Academic Requirements report is based upon a student’s current intended (or approved) major in HUB.  The “What if” report provides students with information on how their completed coursework would apply to a major they have an interest in possibly pursuing.  The Transfer Credit report is a summary of all transfer credit work students have completed. 

There is a network of “First Advisors” to assist staff who has questions regarding any of the degree audit reports.
