A focus on Washington State University’s strategic plan at Enterprise Systems has helped inspire new projects that focus on enhancing the quality and relevance of the learning experience while providing more personalized student services. One of these projects was recently completed and focused on updating undergraduate and professional advising reports.
Since 2012 departmental requirements to graduate, the University’s catalog and advisement reports have become out of sync. This required departments to make academic exceptions so a student could graduate and meet degree requirements. Since the advisement reports were different than the actual requirements, the information on the report was not helpful to the student as they prepared to register for classes.
In March 2015 The Registrar’s Office, Enterprise Systems and over sixty department coordinators began a process to ensure that undergraduate and professional advising reports matched the Washington State University catalog. This September the project was completed. Over 200 advising reports were updated for over 60 departments. These changes will allow students and advisors to use the advising report to make decisions on what classes should be taken now that it matches the University’s catalog. It will provide accurate information so students can be cleared for graduation without requiring exceptions to be added by the department.
The updated academic advisement reports will help Washington State University provide a personalized student experience as each student plans their path to graduation.
