Explore the requirements for majors and minors and make a plan that will help you stay on track for graduation by using the Academic Progress Audit System (APAS) report and Graduation Planner (GP). This workshop will familiarize you with these two tools, giving you more confidence when using them, and encouraging you to plan out your academic future. We also hope to inspire you to prepare for your upcoming advising appointments by using one or both of these tools before meeting with your adviser.
