CAPP Degree Evaluation

CAPP Degree Evaluation


A CAPP Degree Evaluation is a tool that can be used by students and advisors to track course requirements needed for graduation from a specific degree.  The degree evaluation compares a student’s academic history to the program they are desiring to pursue.  It then produces a report that shows how courses are applying towards a degree including what areas of the degree where all requirement are met and what is still pending.

CAPPS is available for students who are using the 2015-16 catalog or any future catalogs to complete their degree.
