Program evaluation is an electronic process that compares the general education, major/minor, and graduation requirements to the student’s academic record. This will allow that person to see what classes have been taken, those that they are pre-registered for, and which ones still need to be taken to complete the degree requirements along with total hours needed, CAAP/Information Literacy Exam, and GPA requirements. Faculty are encourage to prepare a program evaluation for student advisees to assist in providing accurate and current academic information when helping students plan their programs of study. Students can evaluate their credit against any active program (associate, bachelor, or education majors) in the system. Minors must be added to the student’s SPRO screen by college dean secretaries for additional requirements to be added. For assistance in accessing degree audits for advisees, please contact the Registrar’s office at 642-6567.
Students may request a status sheet for their selected majors/minors from the Registrar’s Office after the completion of 64 credit hours. Status sheets are the manual process of the “program evaluation”. The manual process will “catch” substitutions, independent studies, and special topics courses that are used instead of the required course. Blank copies of status sheets can be found on the BHSU website at this address: www.BHSU.edu/academics/statussheets. Faculty may want to use the status sheet in conjunction with the program evaluation when advising students.
Please advise that all graduating students must schedule a graduation appointment 2 semesters prior to graduation with the Registrar’s Office.
