Advising Resources and Tools

 

Tools and resources offered and supported by the Office of Advising & Academic Services

Degree audit

The degree audit is an online reporting tool used to track your progress toward degree completion. Your degree audit is available under the "My Academics" tab in Catalyst.

 

Create My Schedule

Create My Schedule is a class scheduling tool that allows you to generate possible schedules and visually compare course options to find your optimal class schedule.

 

My Graduation Plan

My Graduation Plan is a tool that lets you plan courses, compare majors, explore careers, and track degree progress. 

 

Appointment scheduling

Most advising centers at UC use Starfish for appointment scheduling. Starfish is an online scheduling tool that allows you to conveniently make appointments with your advisors, instructors, and select campus services.

 

Advising center directory

The advising center directory provides an overview of all advising centers at UC and how to contact them.

 

Advising Portal

The Advising Portal is a one-stop-shop for everything advising-related. To make it easier for you to find what you are looking for, resources are grouped by subject area and by alphabet.

 

Student handbooks

A student handbook is a compilation of resources related to a college’s academic policies, program outlines, and student support services and initiatives. Most UC colleges utilize student handbooks, whether as an actual document or a web page. 

 

15 to Finish

Completing the right number of credits each semester is important to make sure you stay on track to graduation with as little student debt as possible. To this end, 15 to Finish was launched as a national initiative to inform students of their options and the importance of not taking fewer than 15 credits each semester, if possible.

 

Other resources and tools

GPA calculator

To accommodate for obstacles impacting students’ performance and potentially grades due to the COVID-19 pandemic, eligible students can accept a Pass grade instead of letter grade for some classes in the 2020 Spring and Summer semesters. To learn how a Pass grade may impact your GPA, the Registrar’s Office provides a GPA calculator along with policies and things to consider before you choose this option.
