Advisement Report

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 Advising select Advisement Report in the drop down menu
  • Once your report appears, click View Report as PDF (ensure pop-ups are enabled in your browser)

We encourage you to check the PDF version of your advisement report at the beginning and end of each term, any time you change your schedule, and before attending advising meetings.

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.

Course Registration Process

We recommend the following steps for course registration every semester.

  1. Add classes to your shopping cart. When courses become available for viewing (in October for Winter/Spring registration, and in March for Summer/Fall registration), add classes to your shopping cart at your UAccess Student Center. Check your advisement report (see above) to get an idea of which courses you still need to take.
  2. Meet with your academic advisor (in October and in March) for assistance selecting courses for the upcoming term. If you have a minor or another major, we encourage you to meet with that advisor as well.
  3. Meet with your faculty mentor in the School of Art before registration. Faculty mentoring is generally late October in the Fall semester, and late March in the Spring semester. Specific dates and RSVP information will be sent to you via email.
  4. Resolve any registration holds that restrict your registration in October (or March) – BEFORE your registration begins. (You can check to see if you have any registration holds at the home page of your UAccess Student Center.)
  5. Register yourself for your courses as soon as your registration becomes available. Courses fill quickly! Your specific enrollment date will be posted at your UAccess Student Center.  Enrollment dates are generally in November (for Winter/Spring registration), and in April (for Summer/Fall registration).

*Summer Sessions are 5 weeks long; 1 credit unit would require 9 hours a week. 3 credit units would require 27 hours work per week.

Senior Degree Check

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.

**A $50.00 candidacy fee is charged to your Bursar’s account.**

Deadlines to Apply for Graduation

Spring and Summer graduates – Feb. 1 of the intended semester.
Fall and Winter graduates–  Sept. 1 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.

Transfer Credit

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 transfer link 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 of Arizona and can be checked easily in the university’s  Course Equivalency Guide or here.

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.

Other Resources

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.

Course Equivalency Guide

Course by course equivalency guide for all community colleges in Arizona, the UA, ASU and NAU. Or go to UA transfer credit tool.

Center for Transfer Students

General information for incoming transfer students.

Transfer Credit & Articulation Information

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.
