Say No to PRQ and UNDECL

Our goal is to have no students stacked in prerequisite stacks or undeclared/undecided stacks - if you see someone in these stacks send an email to Char with student name/number and what their degree plan should be.

Double Check Transfer Degree Status

We want to be sure that students are correctly identified as workforce students.  If you see someone in a transfer stack please talk to them about their intent and if they are in a health pathway please discuss the Allied Health AAS-T to see if it is a better option for them.  If they should be switched send an email to Char with name/number and plan they need to switch to.  If you are in Business then a DTA stack might be the right thing for them - but still inquire to be sure.

Missing/Wrong Advisor?

If you come across a record with a missing or wrong advisor please notify Char.  Send her student name/number and who advisor should be (if you know) or just of the fact that no advisor is listed.
