Effective March 15th, undergraduate (excluding Law) and graduate students who have formally declared their program by submitting a Record of Degree Program (RDP) form with an Academic Adviser will be able to generate their own Degree Audit Report (CAPP Report) online in My page. CAPP reports are a great resource for confirming the remaining university and program requirements for a declared program. To access this report, students will need to sign in to My page and then access the 'Degree Evaluation' option on the 'Grades & records' tab under 'Student services'.
Questions regarding the information on the CAPP report should be directed to the Academic Adviser for the faculty of the declared program.
