Academic Planning Tools
In order to help you to track your academic requirements and make sure that you are on the right track for graduation, SI and the University offer some academic planning tools.
SI Tracking and Planning Sheets (TAPS) are worksheets that can help you plan and track your coursework to meet degree and specialization requirements. TAPS are available from the SI Web site: http://www.si.umich.edu/msi/taps/. Be sure to view both your specialization TAPS and the accompanying page which is the MSI Core Requirements and Degree Summary TAPS. Please NOTE that all students must complete 48 credits and core degree requirements. If you have a specialization, you also need to meet the specialization requirements. You MUST achieve at least a B average (3.0/4.0) to graduate.
In addition, a new, online degree audit tool is available through Wolverine Access for students who entered AFTER Fall 2007 . Please remember that this tool provides general guidance for you to track your progress toward degree and specialization requirements. The degree online audit is based on the actual coursework you complete. Some aspects of the online degree audit must be entered manually by SI student services staff, such as a course waiver. Thus your online degree audit may not be completely accurate until these items have been entered into the system. To view your online degree audit, use the following navigation:
Wolverine Access -> Student Business -> Log In -> Degree Progress/Graduation -> My Academic Requirements
Please remember that this online audit is NOT official. It is intended as a general guide to your academic progress. The School of Information will still complete an official graduation audit when you apply for graduation. However, if you see any problems with your online degree audit or if you have any questions, please contact an SI Student Services staff member. You should check your unofficial transcript and online degree audit regularly, and you should meet with faculty and staff advisors regularly as well.
