Why don't all my advisees have the 60 Credit Hours Outside of Major Requirements?
If a student is pursuing a BA (in every field except Architecture) or a BS degree, then 60 credit hours in coursework must be taken outside the major. (BA-Architecture students require 45 credit hours in coursework outside the major.) If a student is pursuing two or more majors (or two or more degrees), then the 60 credit hours outside of major requirement will be met by completing multiple major (or degree) requirements. Instead, there will be a message in the degree block stating, “Required credit hours outside major met through multiple majors.”
How do I find current degree candidates?
Current degree candidates can be found using the find feature in Degree Works. From the Find Students screen, you will be able to use filters to refine your search.
Why isn't a course my advisee took pass/fail fulfilling the major (or minor/certificate) requirement for that course?
Students may convert a pass/fail course to a graded course by the end of the second week of the semester following the semester in which they took the pass/fail course. However, if the student fails to uncover the pass/fail for a course used to meet requirements for their major (or minor) by the deadline, they may make a written request to the Office of the Registrar to uncover the pass/fail course after the deadline. Such requests will only be considered if the student is deficient in major (or minor) requirements and must uncover the grade to remedy the major (or minor) deficiency.
In the course of reviewing a degree audit for student, the advisor may notice an unmet requirement (such as BIOC 372).
After reviewing other blocks on the degree audit (such as 48 Credit Hours at the Upper-Level, 60 Hours Outside of Major Requirements, General Electives, etc.), the advisor may notice a course on the audit that fulfills the unmet requirement (such as BIOC 372), but is not counting toward the major (or minor) requirement.
If the student took the course pass/fail, earning a grade of P, the grade must be uncovered (converted to the grade earned) in order for the course to count toward the major (or minor). If the student misses the deadline of the end of the second week of the semester following the semester in which they took the pass/fail course to uncover the grade, then the student must notify the Office of the Registrar to uncover the course in question. To uncover the grade, the student will need to submit a request in writing.
