There are several ways to find out and check on what you need to meet your Essential Studies requirements, from doing it on your own to getting help from faculty and advisors.
Use the Essential Studies Planner
Your Essential Studies Planner helps you better understand the University's Essential Studies Program and measure progress in meeting the requirements. Advisors will want to see your plan.
Look up your ES progress with the Electronic Degree Audit
The Degree Audit will show which requirements you’ve met and which ones you still need to meet before graduation.
How to use the Degree Audit:
- Login to CampusConnection.
- Click on Student Center in the left navigation.
- Go to the Other Academics drop down and choose Academic Requirements.
- Click Go.
If you do not have a major yet (undeclared), see the Student Success Center. The Center specializes in advice for students who are undeclared or unsure about a major.
See Your Program Advisor
If you have decided on a major, contact the appropriate office and they will help you schedule an appointment with your advisor.
