Assessing Degree Progress

Overview

An important part of planning your courses each term is reviewing the coursework and requirements you’ve already completed in order to assess the progress you’ve made towards completing your degree.

Academic Progress Report

The Academic Progress Report (APR) is a tool available to L&S undergraduate students that is designed to track progress toward completion of degree requirements, including: university, campus, College of Letters & Science, major and minor requirements. Students can find it in CalCentral within the My Academics section. 

How to use the Academic Progress Report

The APR tool is in its initial stages of release. At this time, the tool should be used to confirm progress in University of California, UC Berkeley Campus, and College of Letters and Science requirements.

More work is needed in the APR to accurately track completion of Major and Minor requirements. Major requirements for about one third of all L&S undergraduate majors are up-to-date in CalCentral. Major requirements for all other majors are in the process of being reviewed and validated. Check with your major adviser for guidance on how to verify progress towards major requirements.

If you’re confused by your Academic Progress Report, L&S Advising can help. See a peer adviser in the residence hall, our intake staff, or meet with an L&S Adviser to review it with you.

Note: If you have any incomplete or missing grades you do not intend to finish in your academic record, we recommend seeing an L&S Adviser to review your unit counts.
