There are many resources available to students during their academic journey at UA. Please see below, and see also the menu links to the left, for more information.
All current UA students should be familiar with their advisement report, which you can access from your UAccess Student Center (Advising > Advisement Report > View Report as PDF).
We encourage you to check the PDF version of your advisement report at the beginning and end of each term, any time you change your schedule, and before attending advising meetings.
Course Related Resources
Please refer to the Dates and Deadlines page (maintained by the Registrar's Office) for pertinent information regarding class registration, GRO filing dates, drop deadlines, "W" deadlines, etc. Though you may receive email reminders about dates and deadlines, it is ultimately your responsibility to keep track of them.
If you will be taking a class outside the University of Arizona and hope to apply it to your degree here, you must have the course(s) approved (and preferably before you take the course(s)) using a Transfer Credit Preapproval Form. For courses taken at a community college in the state of Arizona, review the equivalencies at the Course Equivalency Guide (no need to submit a transfer credit approval form). For courses taken at a domestic institution outside the state of Arizona, check the Transfer Credit Guide. For Computer Science courses, submit your request.
Use the Individual Studies Proposal Form (or Independent Study Form) as a contract between the student and the faculty member. It is meant to help ensure all parties are aware of the expectations for independent study, internship, preceptorship, directed research, and thesis.
Grade Related Resources
The Grade Appeal Process is open to those students who wish to appeal a grade in a course where they feel the grade was inappropriately given. If the student wishes to seek a higher grade in a course than was awarded, and cannot resolve the matter with her/his instructor, the student will need to follow the grade appeal process.
For most pre-major courses (CSC 110, 120, 144, 210, 244, 245) a grade of "C" or higher is required as a prerequisite to the next course. A "B" average is required in some of these courses for major admission (see the Pre-Major website for specifics).
Once you have been officially declared in the CS major, to pass each course requirement for upper-level CSC courses (CSC 252 and above), you must complete each course with a grade of "D" or higher.
In order to graduate with a degree in Computer Science, your overall major GPA must be at or above 2.0.
