  • Producing curriculum and sequencing guides for undergraduate majors
  • Assisting with processing substitutions and waivers 
  • Coordinating advising and registration components of Summer and New Student Orientations
  • Walk-in/call-in advising services, including students in transition, who are changing majors or in academic jeopardy, and faculty and students with questions about core curriculum requirements, degree audits, academic policies, etc.

Use your degree audit to monitor your progress toward graduation. It should include all your requirements for your major, GenEds, GPA, minor, etc. To open your degree audit, go to My Profile -> My Degree Audit -> View All Details -> Degree Audit PDF.

 
Be sure to open the PDF version, as it's more complete and easier to read than the online view.  If you have any questions about your audit, contact your advisor or any of the Advising Center staff.
