Business students who are enrolling on their own must keep in mind…

1. Use your Degree Evaluation (CAPP) and the model programs and check sheet forms to create a tentative study plan.

  • Your degree evaluation shows what classes you have completed toward your degree and what requirements remain. However, your degree evaluation is NOT an official record and other issues may be factors. Course duplication, substitutions or waivers, repeat/replaced courses, etc. may need further review. Always confirm with an advisor that your degree evaluation is accurate.
