Why Should you Meet with a Record Analyst for your Major?
Record Analysts in the Registrar's Office advise in the area of curriculum requirements for graduation of undergraduate students. Each record analyst specializes in the requirements of certain majors and will work with students on a walk-in basis or by phone. Secondary teaching majors should contact the Record Analyst in the major area (i.e. History for History teaching).
Record Analysts in the Registrar's Office:
- Differ from academic advisors in that they do not provide long-term developmental advising, plan schedules, monitor the availability of courses, or assist students in preparing long-term plans of study.
- Differ from Record Analysts in the Admissions Office in that they do not provide information about transfer course equivalencies.
Recommendations for Students from the Record Analysts in the Registrar's Office:
- See the Record Analyst for your major at least two semesters before graduation. Teaching majors should see a Record Analyst at least two semesters before student teaching.
- Substitutions or changes of courses for a major MUST be resolved through a Student Request form completed with the assistance of an academic advisor.
- Complete a Declaration of Curriculum form any time a change/addition/deletion (major, minor, teaching to non-teaching, BA to BS, etc.) is made. Each Declaration of Curriculum completely supersedes the previous one. The form should be filled out completely each time.
- Do not disregard the indication of an unfulfilled requirement on your degree audit (for example the requirement to meet the foreign language requirement or the requirement of History majors to take Humanities I, II and III). Verify the necessary requirments with the Record Analysts for your major.
- Contact the Record Analysts in the Admissions Office with questions about the course transfer equivalencies for a major or the Liberal Arts Core.
