The Graduate Planning & Audit System (GPAS) allows graduate and professional students to plan future coursework and view student degree progress. You only need to add coursework that you plan on taking because the audit (advisement report) will already track completed coursework and requirements. If you want to add or remove a graduate minor, you will need to submit a separate form.

Steps to complete your GPAS planner

Please review the steps below for how to complete and submit your GPAS for review and approval. Note that not all students use the GPAS planner. See the degree completion steps if you are unsure you should use GPAS. Feel free to contact the Graduate Student Services & Progress (GSSP) office with any questions.

Go to the Degree Progress sub-tab of MyU: Academics. Be certain that you are on the GPAS Planner tab and not the Plan tab when logged in. Courses in the planner must be assigned to a term or year. If you want a different program displayed, click the "change" button (see the printable quick start guide).

There are a couple ways to add courses to your GPAS, and you may not need to use them all. Note that xxxx-8777 and xxxx-8888 do not need to be added to your GPAS.

Regardless of which method you use, do not add coursework to the planner that you have already registered for or completed because it will show up twice in the audit. Duplicate courses in your planner may lead to a delay in graduation.

Step-by-step instructions:

All coursework must be assigned a term and year before submitting your GPAS. Confirm in GPAS that you have set the academic term for your planned classes (see step-by-step instructions).

Make sure all planned courses are assigned a term and year and remove any planned courses that you have already completed before you submit your GPAS (see step-by-step instructions).

Note that courses appearing in the "Courses Not Allocated" section of the audit may be used to meet degree requirements. Please consult with your advisor and graduate program staff to identify which courses can be allocated to another section of the audit. Your program can communicate those changes to Graduate Student Services & Progress (GSSP).
