Applied Electives

Applied electives are something you and your advisee reach agreement on.
Samples. Once you and your student agree on courses that belong in the Applied Electives section of their ADA , send an email message (or send a signed hardcopy of the list) to the Director of Undergraduate Mathematics Programs .  Sample message: “Move (__courses___) to GRP 050, Applied Electives, for (__name of student__), ssn ___”
Automated Degree Audit (ADA)

What: This tool provides information about courses remaining in the student’s chosen curriculum to complete the degree How:

  1. In your browser, click on the Faculty Access button at Registration & Records Administrative Services
  2. Use your Unity Account to log in
  3. Click on Advisor Options
  4. Click on Advisee Information
  5. Highlight the advisee’s name in the Advisees list
  6. Click the button next to View Student’s Degree Audit
  7. Click on Submit

Errors in the ADA: If you (or your advisee) discover an error in the ADA (they are common) please either

  • Paperless approach (preferred)
    • Your or your advisee send the Director of the Undergraduate Program an email message including
      • advisee’s name and ID
      • how to contact advisee (email preferred)
      • details of mistake.  Example: ARC 141 is in the ADA as a Free Elective. Please put it into GRP909 under HUM & SOC SCI
  • Hardcopy approach:
    • Print the ADA and mark the class where you (or your advisee) thinks it belongs.
    • Write the advisee’s ID at the top of the page
    • Include how to contact advisee (email preferred)

Plan of Work

What: This tool provides information about courses remaining in the student’s chosen curriculum to complete the degree and courses the student proposes to take in future semester .  Please use it as a planning tool to view your advisees’ plan to complete their degree (but it is suggested that you defer approval of plans ).

A tutorial on the Plan of Work is available.

Known Problems: No error checking is performed.  The student’s schedule (plan) can include

  1. classes that are not offered during the planned semester
  2. classes that conflict with each other
  3. classes for which the pre-requisites are not satsified

For these (and other reasons), you are asked to please  defer plan approval to the Coordinator of Advising.   Individual advisors are asked to wait until more of the bugs in the software are worked out.  The Coordinator of Advising will check all plans submitted for approval during Spring 2003. How to access: (there are several ways to access a student’s Plan of Work — here is one way to get to it).

  1. In your browser, click on the Faculty Access button at Reg & Records Administrative Services
  2. Use your Unity Account to log in
  3. Click on Advisor Options
  4. Click on Advisee Information
  5. Highlight the advisee’s name in the Advisees list
