About The Degree Progress Support System

The computerized advising/degree progress support system, "On Course", evaluates course work taken against degree requirements to determine progress toward the completion of a degree. The "On Course" system provides an Analysis of Academic Progress (AAP) report -- Degree Audit, which is a comprehensive snapshot of the student's academic record evaluated against the requirement areas for a specific degree.

The purpose of "On Course" is to enhance advising by providing accurate and comprehensive information that can be used in consultation with an advisor to make programming decisions. All students are encouraged to contact their advisor for academic and career counseling. Many programs call for the selection of course work in consultation with an advisor. Additionally, an advisor will be able to anticipate problems and make adjustments to a program, when necessary.

It is important that students in the following undergraduate schools consult Albert to monitor their progress toward the academic program they wish to complete:

  • College of Arts and Science
  • Leonard N. Stern School of Business
  • Gallatin School of Individualized Study
  • Silver School of Social Work

Please visit Albert frequently to review your Analysis of Academic Progress (AAP) report -- Degree Audit. Contact your advisor immediately if you believe there are any errors or discrepancies in the analysis or if you need to request a waiver or substitution to satisfy your program.

IF YOU EXPECT TO GRADUATE THIS SEMESTER: Please remember to view your degree audit to ascertain that all academic requirements will be satisfied by the end of the term, so that you may graduate on time. Make sure that all Dean or Departmental waivers, exemptions or substitutions are submitted to the Office of the University Registrar no later than the close of the term or you will have to postpone your graduation one more semester.
