Degree Progress ReportYour Degree Progress Report outlines all the program requirements and provides a snapshot of your progress in meeting these program requirements. You may access your Degree Progress Report through PAWS and should do so prior to every visit with your academic advisor. Degree Progress Reports will be reviewed by your academic advisor to track your progress at key points.
- Prior to admission to the School of Education: Prior to applying for admission to the School of Education, you should review your degree progress report to ensure you have met all the admission criteria. This report will also be checked by your academic advisor as part of the admission review process. If there are any bolded items in the "Admission Application Requirements" section, you will be denied admission.
- Following application for student teaching: Each program requires a student to meet particular requirements in order to be approved to student teach. Your application for student teaching will trigger a review of your record. The degree progress report will be used to determine if you have met these requirements. If you have not met all the requirements for student teaching, you will not be provided a placement.
- Following application for graduation: When you think you are ready to graduate, you should apply online for graduation. Your advisor will be informed of your intent to graduate. At that point, your degree progress report will be reviewed. If your report is clear (no bolded items), you will be approved to graduate.
Program SheetYour program sheet is designed to help you select and manage your courses and program requirements. Your program sheet is updated each time you meet with your advisor. The original is placed in your file and a copy will be given to you.
