Here is a list of Frequently Asked Questions about Degree Evaluation. If you have any other questions that are not answered here please select the "Contact" link above.
I have a problem with CAPP, how do I notify you?
You can submit a Degree Evaluation (CAPP) error form by clicking on this link. TESTING FORM.
I've heard it called Degree Evaluation and CAPP -what is the difference?
They are the same thing: CAPP is an acronym for the Curriculum Advising and Program Planning module meant to show where courses you take fit into your degree program. Used as a tool to supplement academic advising, CAPP makes the path to graduation easier to follow.
Why are most of my core areas showing as incomplete?
The earliest term for which you can run a CAPP compliance is fall 1998. CAPP is designed for semester system courses only and cannot use both quarter and semester system classwork. If you have quarter system work you will need to have the assistance of your academic advisor to determine how those courses are used in your degree program.
Why are some of my courses in the wrong area?
CAPP is designed to place courses into appropriate program
areas. Sometimes there are multiple areas where a course could be used.
Academic advising with your program department will help clarify any
confusion this may cause.
CAPP compliances will reflect substitutions, area adjustments, waivers
and targets once paperwork is submitted and entered. Student Academic
Summary forms will not.
What if CAPP doesn’t
reflect the requirements for my catalog year?
Again, this is where academic advising is important. CAPP will
default to your current major and catalog year. If your advisor and
department chairperson agree that course substitutions are needed to
accurately reflect degree requirements, they will complete the necessary
paperwork and submit it to the Registrar’s Office for record updating.
What do I do if CAPP lists my major incorrectly?
To update your major you can either complete the change of
major form at the Registrar’s Office in Payne Hall or use the
ELROY system to submit the record change. In the meantime, you can run
a ‘What-If’ compliance. Appropriate concentrations and minors
need to be declared for the compliance to work properly.
What is a ‘What-If’ compliance?
The ‘What-If’ option allows you to run an evaluation for any available program and major. This option is also used when generating a compliance for a second major.
Why does my CAPP audit not show the last column on the right?
You need to print your audit in landscape format. In Internet Explorer click on File|Page Setup and then select "Landscape." Consult the documentation if you use a different browser
Does my CAPP audit include the classes I am currently taking?
Yes. And if you run the audit for a future term that you have already registered for, it will include those classes as well.
Some requirements have “or” & “and” next to them. What does this mean?
A requirement with an “or” next to it means that you can take the requirement it is listed next to or the one listed above it. A requirement with an “and” next to it means that you must take the requirement it is listed next to and the requirement above it.
What does “Entry Term” mean? What does “Evaluation Term” mean?
“Entry Term” is the catalog year in which you were admitted into your degree program here at ASU. “Evaluation Term” should be the current semester. This way it will include courses taken in the prior semester and courses that you are currently registered for.
What happens to courses that I withdrew from or failed?
Any course with a non-passing grade (0.0, W) will appear under “Additional Information”. This can be viewed by selecting “View Additional Information” on the “Display Options” screen (the page that comes up once a compliance has been run).
What happens to courses that I have taken and passed, but do not fit into any specific category?
All passed courses that do not appear in an LAS or Major area are dropped into the Free Electives area.
Why are some of my courses appearing in the wrong area? What can I do to change this?
CAPP does the best it can to fit your courses into appropriate areas. Sometimes there are multiple areas that a course could fit into and it will choose one. Unfortunately, it doesn't know where you meant the course to fit into your program. If you wish to change the placement of a course you have to inform the Registrar's Office in writing so that they can make the adjustment (as long as it is within accepted Academic guidelines). Firstly visit your Academic department for them to complete this paperwork. You can send an email to CAPP@aug.edu that explains fully and clearly the issues you are having with CAPP. Also, please fill out the error form.
What is a CAPP Report, when should I get one, and how do I adjust it if it needs to be changed?
A CAPP (Curriculum, Advising and Program Planning) Compliance Report is one way to determine where you stand in meeting all degree requirements of your degree program.
First, it is important to declare your degree program--your major, concentration, minor, and degree catalog. All of these are necessary before requesting a CAPP Report.
What recourse do I have if I disagree with my CAPP Compliance Report?
If you disagree with any areas of the CAPP Report, discuss this with your advisor. It may be a simple matter of re-assigning a course to meet a particular requirement.
