How To?

My Action Plan shows students their route to graduation


 

How do I read the audit?

Start by familiarizing yourself with the Legend, which is found at the bottom of the audit page.

Legend

The Wildcard character, @, can be used to specify any subject code or any course number. A requirement written as 1 Class in HIST 1101 means this specific course. A requirement written as 1 Class in HIST @ means a history course of any number. A requirement written as 1 Class in @ 3000:4999 means a course of any subject, within the numerical range from 3000 to 4999.

 

How is the audit structured?

The audit is divided into blocks. Your audit is for the program and University Calendar Year currently on your official student record. To change your program or University Calendar Year see kpu.ca/declaration

 

"Credential" block

Contains general requirements for the Degree, Diploma, Certificate, Citation or other credential, and provides a summary of the additional detailed blocks that appear below.

Credential Block

 

"Core Requirements" or "Foundation" block

Contains general requirements for the credential.

Core requirements 1

Core requirements 2

 

"Major" block

Contains the specific requirements for the main subject of study.

Major block

 

"Minor" block

Contains the specific requirements for the minor subject of study. Present only if the student has declared one or more minors.

Minor block

 

"Concentration" block

For Co-op, or certain other programs that have curricular concentrations.

Concentration block

 

"Fallthrough Courses" block

Lists the courses that are applicable to your program, yet don’t match a specific requirement. These count as electives, or ‘extra’ courses. They contribute to your total credit count and Program GPA.

 

"Insufficient" block

Lists courses that do not meet program requirements because of their grade.

 

"In-Progress" block

Lists courses that you're registered in for the current or future semester, or for which a final grade hasn’t yet been recorded.

Note that Courses in Progress (CIP) count towards requirements and credit totals. If you repeat a course that is already on your record and receive the same or higher grade, then the previous credits will be forfeited. If the grade is lower, then the current credits will be forfeited. However, until final grades are processed for the repeat, both instances, i.e. the prior course as well as the course in progress (CIP), will appear in the audit as duplicate usable credits. Bear this in mind when calculating needed credits.

 

"Not Counted" block

Lists courses that are from academic levels (e.g. Preparatory, Vocational, Undergraduate) that don’t apply to the credential audited, that exceed a limit for credits in a specific set of courses, or that exceed an age limit. The message “Max of zero classes/Credits exceeded” refers to a limit on the number of classes/credits that has been coded for a particular category of courses (eg. Age Limit for Courses, Academic Level, Faculty).

Not counted block

 

How do I create a What-If audit with two minors?

  1. Select your primary area of study
    • Program: Bach. of Arts – Double Minor
    • Major: Double Minor
    • Minor: <choose a Minor>
  2. Select your additional areas of study as
    • Program: Bach. of Arts – Double Minor
    • Major: Double Minor
    • Minor: <choose another Minor>
  3. Click the Add button.
  4. Click Print/Save as PDF button (or Process What-If). Note: To include transfer credits granted in the current semester in a What-If audit, you must tick the box "Include preregsitered classes".

Audit with two minors

Using the primary and additional areas of study, a variety of custom audits can be created. For example, by choosing a Bach. of Arts in Anthropology for both “primary” and “additional” Program and selecting a different Minor within each area a single Major can be combined with two Minors.

 

How can I view a list of all the courses I've completed?

Click on the “Courses Taken” link for a chronological listing of all courses taken and in progress.

 

How else can I use MAP?

Aside from the audit, several different reports are available, depending on your user-class. Use the Format menu to check out the options available to you.

Registrar Report – Shows the requirements and the underlying coding. Useful for seeing the ‘Credential Block’ qualifiers such as minimum grade requirements or time limits.

Graduation Checklist – A simplified version of the audit, contrasting completed and uncompleted requirements.

Registration Checklist – A list of courses that can be taken in order to fulfill outstanding requirements.

Diagnostics Report – Technical details of the audit algorithm. Reveals why the ‘best fit’ of courses to requirements may not exactly match the user’s expectation.

Student Data Report – Organized lists of student’s data, including program, courses, and course attributes.
