Advising Center - Course Registration

This guide provides information about academic advising and course registration.

Degree Matrix or Academic Roadmap

All students without transfer credits will use a degree matrix or academic roadmap to help them plan their academic journey at the college.

 

Students in the School of Professional Studies majoring in Accounting, Business Administration, Communications, Computer Information Systems, Corporate Communications, Criminal Justice, Criminal Justice Administration, Entrepreneurship and Small Business, Homeland Security Management, Information Technology, Legal Studies, Marketing, or Paralegal can access their degree matrix on Blackboard under Student Resources > Plan My Degree.

 

Students in the School of Health Sciences can contact their faculty advisor to obtain an academic roadmap for their program.

Transfer Evaluation

If you have transferred credits from another institution or have taken an equivalency exam such as the Advanced Placement (AP) exam or College Level Examination Program (CLEP), you should have received a transfer evaluation from your admissions counselor during the admissions process. This also applies to previous students who have withdrawn and are now returning to the college.

 

Your transfer evaluation shows 

  • the credits that have been accepted for transfer
  • the course equivalencies they have been assigned
  • the credits and courses still required

 

If you need a copy of the transfer evaluation, you should contact the Office of Records and Registration.

College Catalog

The College Catalog contains general college information, college-wide policies, program and graduation requirements, and course descriptions.  You will want to refer to the College Catalog throughout your academic career to help you navigate the college's policies and processes, stay on pace for graduation, and select courses.

 

Here's a quick breakdown of the course information in the catalog:

Unofficial Transcript

An unofficial transcript is an academic record of your time with the college that includes courses (transferred, attempted, completed), grades earned, grade point averages (term, cumulative), and other important notes related to your academics (such as Dean's List honors).  When registering, an unofficial transcript will help you keep track of your progress and grades earned.  Unofficial transcripts are located on the student portal. To access your transcript, sign onto the single sign-on system, click the Student Portal tile, and then go to My Academics > Unofficial Transcript.

 

If you cannot access your unofficial transcript, you may have a transcript hold on your account due to owing a balance to the college or having a library material past the due date. Please contact the Business Office for more information on your hold.
