What Semester Classes Do I Register For?
For general semester course requirements:
- Find your SEMESTER academic program, click your major, then select the curriculum guide to review the semester classes generally required in your major.
- Review the Arts & Sciences core requirements semester checklist. Some students will notice on their degree audit that they may even be advantaged by the conversion in A&S core requirements.
For your personal academic progress and plans:
- Review your personal SEMESTER degree audit as well as your Individualized Advising Plan (IAP) on OneStop (available if you completed the "Verify My Major" steps by March 1st.) See below for information about your semester audit and IAP.
- Contact your major/departmental advisor for questions about your major or your assigned A&S college advisor for questions about A&S college core requirements. You can email simple quick questions or schedule an advising appointment as needed. If your questions are specific to your IAP, please see the advisor indicated on the IAP.
How Do I Locate And Read My SEMESTER Degree Audit?
- Go to "get my degree audit" on OneStop, click "continue" and login.
- Choose these pull-down options and submit: Run Selected Program, Arts & Sciences, your major program, then semester audit.
- The charts reflect progress to degree (but are not yet used by most students or advisors.)
- Progress and requirements are reflected in semester hours - quarter hours are multiplied by 0.66667.
- The progress indicators for each requirement in your degree mean the following:
- Green checkmark = requirement area fully complete
- Red "X" = requirement area not yet fully complete
- Hollow green "IP" checkmark = requirement in progress based on registered classes
- +/- signs = sub-requirement met (+) or unmet (-)
Compare your quarter degree audit to your semester degree audit. Your semester audit should reflect at least the same progress toward various requirement areas as your quarter audit.
What's On My IAP? Why Should I Approve It?
Your Individualized Advising Plan (IAP) for Semester Conversion includes:
- A frozen-in-time snapshot of your semester degree audit at the time that your IAP was created. It is likely that your semester degree audit will be more updated than the IAP if you made any registration changes or if any grades posted since your IAP was created.
- A projected graduation date based on your remaining requirements and assuming an estimated 15 credit hours completion each term (excluding summers.)
- Any advising notes that your college advisor and your major department advisor needed to add to clarify your remaining requirements and courses to plan.
Please "approve" your IAP if it reflects your academic progress toward your requirement areas comparably to your academic progress on your quarter degree audit. You are not required to graduate by the term indicated â€“ this is only an estimate to help you verify if you are "on track" with your requirements.
Students in these programs should see their major/departmental advisor as listed on the IAP with IAP questions: AIST, APHY, BIOL, CHEM, CLAS, COMM, EVST, FREN, GEOG, GRMN, MATH, OLHR, PHYS, SPAN
All other students should see their A&S college advisor with any remaining questions.You may email simple questions or schedule a meeting with your advisor.
