Degree Requirements

See the Degree Requirements page for details on completing a degree. 

Degree Checks

Students may run a Progress Check or Degree Audit at any time through the GOLD system to check requirements and progress towards graduation.  The Progress Check and Degree Audit can be found under "Academic History" (one of the buttons on the left side of the screen).  Please note:  these are the same tools used by advisors and the Registrar.   

The Progress Check consists of the College's requirements to graduate such as unit count, GEs, and residency requirements.   The Degree Audit displays progress in the major (courses and GPA requirements) in addition to the College's requirements--therefore the Degree Audit gives a more complete picture of what is required to complete your degree.

Students may also meet with an academic advisor to address any questions about degree requirements.
