Academic Advisement Report



Students are expected to comply with published prerequisites. See the catalog for available courses, descriptions, and prerequisites.

University policy:  Students with a declared minor at the time of application for degree candidacy will see the defined minor on their Student Academic Advisement Report (SAAR).  University and transfer courses with direct equivalency may satisfy the minor requirements.  If the student has completed the minor as structured by the minor department, there is no need for the signature of the minor advisor on the degree audit.
