PAWS - Requesting a What-If Academic Advisement Report

This article is in relation to requesting what-if academic advisement reports.

Overview

There are two types of What-If Academic Advisement Reports:
  1. Program What-If Academic Advisement Report: Allows a user to place students into a program that is not their own to see how they meet the program requirements.
  2. Course What-If Academic Advisement Report: Allows a user to view how coursework that students are not enrolled in would apply toward their degree requirements.
Only administrative staff are authorized to run What-If Academic Advisement Reports; students and faculty advisors do not have this access.
