We'll run through the major functionality of the UniversityPath here by using a tutorial-styled case study.
We're pitting you as a Freshman; and you're pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computing (Software Systems Emphasis), and a Minor in Math - both for under the 2010 Agreement.
So... you did some courses last semester.
Your courses will ultimately contribute to the fulfilment of your degree requirements.
This semester, you're doing some more courses.
The course editor is a simple interface, and easy to use.
Let's track your progress in CHEM107, so you know how your grade is progressing.
The Course Tracker is started by clicking the 'Begin Tracking' link when you edit a course in the Course Manager.
Course Tracker: CHEM107
Monitoring your progress in this way allows you to always be on top of your courses. It also helps to motivate you to excel at your degree!
We know what our GPA from last semester is...
GPA Calculator: Completed Courses Only
But can you project your GPA using your grade wishes? Sure you can!
GPA Calculator – With Courses Currently Pursued
Ok... Things are looking good! Let's recap what we can do so far.
Now you're looking organized! Let's see what else we can do.
Your Degree Viewer already shows most of the requirements needed for your Degree(s). Wouldn't it be great to plan your future courses ahead of time?
Let's add some wish list courses for the next semester. Again, we'll attempt to mix and match courses, so that we fulfil Core requirements and General Ed requirements in an even way. While we're at it, we can put in the "wished for" grades for those wishlist courses too.
Course Manager: Wishlist Courses
You have a nice plan here! Hmm... wonder what your GPA will look like with those wishlist courses?
