  • Obtain a copy of your unofficial transcript.
  • Review the College Bulletin in effect at the time you were admitted to the College of Engineering; make it a point to review the 2.00 GPA overall requirement; the 2.00 GPA requirement in all courses taken within your program; and the 128 Credit Toward Program (CTP) requirement.
  • Review your CoE Advising Report / Senior Audit with your Program Advisor; compare completion of degree requirements with your records; check for accuracy – i.e., make sure your elections for the current and future terms will completely satisfy your degree requirements by your proposed graduation date. Your Program Advisor(s) must approve any deviations from the published program that you select. 
    • You can access your CoE Advising Report / Senior Audit by visiting Wolverine Access’ Student Center, clicking on “My Academics,” “View my advisement report” and then click “Detail report PDF ” to download your copy of the audit.
