Frequently Asked Questions About Universal Tracking
Universal tracking is a degree audit system, which provides a recommended semester-by-semester enrollment plan that includes certain 'critical' courses.
'Critical' courses must be completed with the required GPA during the semester in which they are indicated in order to be on track for the designated major.
The purpose of universal tracking is to allow students the freedom to explore majors and to receive feedback on their progress in the major in order to find the best academic path to complete their degree.
