I would like to have my Degree Progress Report updated

You can complete this form if you would like the DPR to be updated to reflect your transfer credits or course credit equivalencies not currently reflected.  An Academic Advisor will review your file and make any necessary adjustments.  Please allow at least 2 weeks from when the form is completed for these changes to be reflected.  If an Advisor has any concerns, they will contact you to discuss.
