Academic Advisement Report

We are excited to introduce a new advising tool. The Academic Advisement Report (AAR) is an interactive audit tool that helps you and your advisor see your progress towards graduation.

The AAR allows you to track progress toward graduation by showing all requirements for your degree (e.g., skills, university, general education, diversity, and major/ minor requirements) and whether a requirement is satisfied or not satisfied.

The AAR can be viewed in an interactive online format or as a PDF. We recommend viewing online.

The AAR can be accessed in SOLAR. The AAR does replace DARS.
