Your degree progress report has the most accurate information that advisors also check.
-Log into your student center
-Under academics; find the drop down menu and select “degree progress report”
-After selecting that, hit the blue button and wait for the report to load.

Your DPR can also now show you what you need for your major and minor in the College of Ethnic Studies. The DPR does not replace advising, but it can be helpful if you have a quick question on what you might need while you wait to meet with someone. Make an appointment with an Advisor, faculty advisor, or department chair if you would like transferred units or courses outside of the bulleton considered for your major.
