The Advising, Transfer and Career Services Office is excited to introduce Student Planning!
Student Planning is an online resource that provides students and advisors the tools they need to plan and track progress toward degree completion. With Student Planning, you can plan courses for graduation, register for courses, and even see how your credits would fit into a different degree program.

Reporting an Issue with Your Degree Audit
When you review your “My Progress” screen, you might notice that a course is not counting the way you expected. If you notice any issues with your My Progress screen (which is your degree audit), you can report the issue to Academic Advising. An advisor will review your concern, determine the course of action, and notify you via email of the outcome.
