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.

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 the program Guide page.
