"What-If" allows you to build an audit scenario for different concentrations/minors and allows students to select a program they might be interested in pursuing.

For Degree students that are considering graduating with a Certificate or Diploma, this function will provide you with a snapshot of your current courses. 

Note: Please ensure that you select the correct combination of Catalog Year, Credential, Program, and Concentration (if applicable) to get accurate results.

The What-If Audit is a tool to provide generic guidance on how courses may be used if a student is considering a change. It is not an official change application to a different program.

    To add an additional Concentration or Minor – please click additional areas of study.
