How to View an Advisement Report

The Advisement Report is a tool for full-time undergraduate degree students that shows all the courses they have taken, are enrolled in or have credit in as well as those courses still needed in order for them to fulfill graduation requirements.

As the student works their way towards graduation, this report reflects their progress and gives details of the courses they still need to take in order to graduate.

The Advisement Report is unofficial, may contain inaccuracies and is subject to change. It does not represent an irrevocable contract between the student and the university.

Admin Helpful Tip:

Every time the student changes their enrolment, they should run the Advisement Report to ensure that their changes have met their requirements.

Students may come to you with questions such as:

  • How do I interpret my Advisement Report?
  • What courses do I need to graduate?
  • Can you help me with my course intentions and determining my outstanding requirements?
  • Can you help me ensure that my course selections fulfill my requirements?

In the Admin Center, you can view the student’s Advisement Report and provide answers to these and other questions.

This job aid describes how to navigate the Advisement Report only. For help interpreting the contents of the report, click the (Help icon) Advisement Report Help link in the top right corner of the page.
