Academic Requirements Report

The Academic Requirements Report (ARR) is an online report that provides a real-time overview of a student’s academic record and their degree requirements, using symbols to indicate which of those requirements are completed, in-progress, and outstanding. The ARR is reflective of applicable coursework completed at SSU, relevant units from a student’s Transfer Credit Report, and, in some instances, approved petitions the student has filed with Admissions & Records. Before a student can graduate, all requirements listed on the ARR must be checked as completed. Because of this, the ARR should be considered the definitive report in tracking a student’s progress toward their degree.

Seawolf Scheduler

The Seawolf Scheduler is an interactive online tool that can assist students in building the perfect class schedule. By using various filters, students are able to easily select preferred classes, block-off breaks or extracurricular commitments, and let the Seawolf Scheduler do the work for them; promptly identifying all the possible schedule permutations. From there, students are able to compare schedules, select their favorite, and send that schedule to their shopping cart to finalize registration. When utilized, the Seawolf Scheduler saves time, improves the likelihood of securing the ideal schedule, enables students to take more units, and promotes the pursuit of the previously elusive four-year degree. Note: when launched, the Seawolf Scheduler opens in a separate internet tab and often is blocked as a pop-up. This can be addressed by allowing the pop-up to show if prompted with the option, or by changing your browser settings.

Degree Planner

The Degree Planner is an interactive online tool that can assist students in mapping-out a customizable degree plan to fit a targeted graduation timeline. By pulling information from a student’s ARR, the Degree Planner outlines the best sequencing of courses, based on the recommendations of the department. These sequences may be tailored by the student and their advisor to fit various individual preferences. When a sequence is adjusted, the plan automatically updates, rerouting the student to the most efficient pathway to their degree.

Transfer Credit Report

The Transfer Credit Report is an online report that provides an overview of transferable coursework taken at other institutions, as well as college-level units earned through credit-by-exam, e.g., AP, IB, CLEP, and DSST / DANTES. Coursework is included on the Transfer Credit Report only after is has been appropriately reported, evaluated, and articulated. For example, for coursework taken at a Community College, students would request official transcripts be sent from the Community College to SSU, once received, SSU would need to evaluate and articulate the coursework before deciding what to apply to a student’s degree. Similarly, for credits earned via an AP test, students would request official test scores be sent from the College Board to SSU, once received, SSU would articulate the coursework before deciding what to apply to a student’s degree.
