The Worksheets displays your progress toward the completion of your degree. It displays your successfully completed courses, your in-progress courses, and uncompleted courses that are required by your degree. All courses are organized into the following degree categories:

  • General Education requirements
  • Major requirements
  • Learning Skills
  • Remedial course requirements
  • Elective courses
  • Insufficient courses

The Worksheets also displays the following:

  • your major and educational goal
  • catalog year
  • academic status
  • hold information
  • overall grade point average (GPA)
  • transfer credit information


The What-If allows you to compare your current course history to other potential degrees. Use this link if you are thinking about changing majors and would like to know how far along your current history of courses would take you in the completion of a different degree.


The Planner tab contains your First Semester Educational Plan (SEP), built by you and your counselor. Counselors can use the Planner to schedule your potential courses for as long as 3 years into the future. You may view (but not create or edit) these planned schedules.
