An appointment for Academic Advising must be scheduled, in advance, through the online WiseAdvising scheduling system or through the Program Coordinator at 621-2618. We recommend that you schedule a minimum of two appointments with an Academic Advisor per semester, and one when you are getting close to graduating.

You can regularly check progress toward your educational goals through the use of a computerized degree audit advisement report in UAccess. The advisement report checks courses for which you are registered or have completed against the requirements of your program(s) and provides an audit report.
How do I obtain my advisement report?
You may obtain an advisement report by requesting it directly from the UAccess Student Center:
- Select Student Center
- Enter your Net ID and Password
- Under Academics select Advisement Report in the drop down menu
Does the advisement report replace advising?
No. The purpose of the advisement report is to enhance advising by providing accurate and comprehensive information that you can use in consultation with your advisor to make academic decisions. Many major and minor requirements call for you to select course work in consultation with your academic advisor. Additionally, your advisor is able to correct errors on the advisement report and make adjustments when necessary.
All students must complete a degree check prior to graduating from the University of Arizona. Students should apply for degree candidacy by submitting their graduation application via their UAccess Student Center.
All eligible students will be notified by the UA Registrar office, directly to their UA email account when a student is eligible to submit their graduation application through UAccess Student Center.
For detailed instructions on accessing and submitting your graduation application, click here.
**A $50.00 candidacy fee is charged to your Bursar’s account.**
Deadlines to Apply for Graduation
Spring and Summer graduates – February 1st of the intended semester.
Fall and Winter graduates– September 1st of the intended semester.
Applications will be accepted after the deadline; however an additional $50.00 Late Candidacy Application fee will be assessed per late application.
After submitting the application for graduation, degree candidates must contact and meet with a School of Art academic advisor to initiate the Degree Audit Worksheet (DAW), which will communicate your plan to complete your final degree requirements. Your major advisor will sign your degree audit worksheet and deliver it to graduation services.
Students should not schedule your degree check appointment through the online scheduling system. Please schedule through the Program Coordinator at (520) 621-2618.
INFORMATION AND RESOURCES
There are two basic steps you must take to ensure that your transfer credit is utilized in your degree correctly.
- You must submit transcripts based on whether you are an undergraduate Transfer Applicant or Continuing UA Student. Newly admitted freshmen must send high school transcripts to the Admissions Office in Old Main.
- Current students should follow instructions in this link (http://www.registrar.arizona.edu/regtrans/transcripts/transfer) in order to submit transfer credits.
- You will work with a School of Art Academic Advisor to see how the units can be utilized in your degree program.
You will need to check with both offices to insure proper transfer articulation. In-state courses have already been evaluated by the University and can be checked easily in the Course Equivalency Guide online (see below for link).
If you are a current student and plan to take courses at another institution, we encourage you to check with the Registrar and your Academic Advisor to be sure the course of study you are planning works within your degree program. You must receive a C or better in the courses you wish to transfer in order to receive UA credit. GPA’s from other institutions do not affect your UA GPA.
The following links can help you determine how transfer credit may work within your educational plan. Always check with an academic advisor before you complete any course. If you are a new transfer student, you should contact an advisor to schedule an appointment as soon as you are admitted.

General information for incoming transfer students.
This site provides general information on the Transfer Model, the Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC), baccalaureate degrees offered by the public universities and their appropriate community college pathways, as well as links to other helpful sites.
Pre-approval Transfer Credits (current students)
If you would like to take a class at Northern Arizona University, Arizona State University, or an institution outside of Arizona, obtain a description of the course and speak with an academic advisor regarding whether or not the course may transfer. Keep a copy of the course syllabus.
If you believe an error has been made in the evaluation of your transcripts, make an appointment with an academic advisor to discuss the possibility of an evaluation appeal.
