GSTS - Accessing Academic Advisement Reports using Faculty Center

This document provides an overview of how Faculty Advisors can access and run Academic Advisement Reports through the Faculty Center for their graduate student advisees using the Graduate Student Tracking System (GSTS). It also provides an overview of the Academic Advisement Report structure and an introduction to reading the report. Note that the access path and report view are different for both graduate coordinators and students.


Log in to your MyUW account using your NetID and password

Note: You will also be prompted to enter Multi-Factor Authentication. 


Select the Faculty Center tile from your MyUW homepage.  If you do not have the Faculty Center tile you can follow these instructions to search for and add the tile to your homepage.

At the top of the Faculty Center page click on the Advisor Center tab.

Next, click on the Student Center tab to access the Advisee Student Center.

In the Advisee Student Center use the drop down menu to select the student whose report you want to view, then click Change.

Under the Academics section use the drop down menu to select Academic Requirements.  Then click the double arrow to generate the report.


The following screen will be displayed. This is general information that tells the student what GSTS is. It also includes a disclaimer that warns you, students, and advisors that student course exceptions and prior coursework may not be displayed in this report.


Student’s actual coursework and academic progress are reflected in this report. Requirements that are “not satisfied” remain expanded, and requirements that are “satisfied” will be collapsed.


However, you can automatically collapse and expand all sections in the report using the buttons at the top of the page.


Each requirement will show the units or number of courses required, taken, and needed. Units or courses in progress will count as if they have been successfully completed, but will display with a yellow diamond next to them notifying users that this status is pending successful completion.


Scrolling down you will also see Program Minimum Requirements, including those for resident credit and graduate coursework (50%). These minimums satisfy the Graduate School minimum requirements, and are pulled individually for each program from the Requirements tab on your Guide page.


Lastly you will see Informational Data, which includes courses not counted for program requirements, but which might be used towards completing the required Graduate School credits.


To return to the Advisee Student Center page to view a report for another student click on the Student Center button in the top left corner.
