Student Advisement Reports are divided into different areas.
These may vary by program. Typical areas are the major area,
the core area, and "free electives".
When you review your Student Advisement Report, you will notice
that the letters "H", "P", "R", and "T" appear any number of times
under the column headed "source" (on the far-right margin of the
report). The letters represent the following terms:
- H - History (a completed course)
- P - Exception (an approved course substitution
or course waiver)
- R - Registered (a course for which the student
has registered, or a course without a grade)
- T - Transfer (a course for which the student
has received transfer credit)
When you print your report, select "landscape orientation" to
see all available fields.
About the GPA
For each area, the advisement report gives a GPA,
which is calculated solely from the grades in that area. This GPA
is accurate for the grades shown, but is not an official GPA - it
is informational only.
The "Courses Not Used" area at the bottom of the advisement
report shows all courses that have not been used to satisfy a
degree requirement. This includes failed courses and those courses
from which a student has withdrawn. These grades may count in a
student's official GPA, major GPA, or honors GPA.
Note that the overall and program GPA's shown at the top of the
advisement report include all grades in all courses taken. The area
GPA's, as already noted, are calculated solely on the grades shown
in each area.
