How do I get an error corrected on my DPR?

Contact your Transfer & Graduation Advisor in the Registrar’s Office via the Online Inquiry Form at Degree Progress Report.

Top

My curriculum year is wrong. How do I get that corrected?

Contact your Transfer & Graduation Advisor in the Registrar’s Office via the Online Inquiry Form at Degree Progress Report.

Top

Why can’t I view my DPR?

The DPR is no longer available once a student's degree has been posted in the system. Also, the DPR for students in Master of Arts in Education is still under development. For all other students who cannot view their DPR and are in active status, contact your Transfer & Graduation Advisor in the Registrar’s Office.

Top

Where is the unrestricted unit area listed on the DPR?

Unused credits fall under the section Credits Not Used.  This section may include courses that have been used to satisfy General Education requirements, but due to CSU-GE Breadth Certification, are not specifically listed under the General Education Requirements they satisfy.

Top

I have completed all my GE and major requirements, why does the DPR still report that I have not met all degree requirements?

If a student has satisfied all requirements but are short any of the TOTAL UNIT REQIREMENTS FOR THE DEGREE, the status for this area will remain RED until additional unrestricted units are completed to satisfy the minimum unit requirements for the degree.

Top

The Expected Grad Term is off. Why is that?

The date in this section is a date assigned to the student upon admission and is used by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships to project student eligibility for financial aid.  When the student officially applies for graduation, Expected Grad Term date will correctly reflect the term the student selects as his/her graduation date.  Additionally, the Graduation Status will read Applied for Graduation.

How can I print the DPR?

Click on the Printer Friendly Page link located below the “Current Academic Summary” section at the right hand top corner of the report.

Top

Can my advisor view my DPR?

Yes, advisors and other department personnel who have access to the Advisor Page in BroncoDirect have access to DPRs and can see exactly what you see online.

Top

Where do I see the courses I have received a grade of “F” in?

Under the tabs Course History and External Credit you can view all CPP and transfer courses in addition to any Test or Military Service Credits.

Top

Why are some of my courses that I took to complete my General Education (GE) requirements listed under Credits Not Used?

The Courses Not Used section may include courses that have been used to satisfy General Education requirements, but due to CSU-GE Breadth Certification (where adjustments to DPRs need to be made on a student-by-student basis), are not specifically listed under the General Education Requirements they satisfy.

Top

Why do I see the same course listed under both Support and GE?

Courses CAN be double counted under SUPPORT and GE.  When a student double counts courses in these areas, there is a possibility that he/she may fall short of the overall unit requirement (180 units) or the minimum upper division major unit requirement (27 units for BS and 60 units for BA).

Top

Are the courses under “Courses Not Used” counted towards their GPA and unit requirements?

Yes.

Top

Why do I not see my petition posted & or supplemental transcripts posted?

The Registrar’s Office receives numerous petitions daily.  It can take from 30-60 days to process a student’s petition.

Top

I have a minor but it is not listed on my DPR?

Only contracts that have been submitted to the Registrar’s Office appear on the DPR.

Top

Will I receive credit for a duplicate course taken?

No.  You will not receive duplicate units for courses passed more than once but the grades you receive in your classes will be calculated in your GPA.  Prior to your Transfer & Graduation Advisor thoroughly reviewing your record, you may continue to see courses that you’ve repeated appear more than once on your DPR.  However, please remember that adjustments will be made upon review of your record and units from repeated courses will be subtracted from record. Refer to the Repetition of Courses policy at EO1037.

Top

Why is my Foreign Language area C3 course in Humanities area C2?

Since California Community Colleges could use courses from different disciplines than CPP, and CPP honors GE Certification, courses may fall in different areas or under Courses Not Used.

Top

Why are my career track courses showing up in all the emphasis areas when I am only completing one?

The DPR has been set up to show all allowable courses just in case you decide to change to another.

Top

I transferred 120 units from the college community but only 105 are counting towards my units. Why is that? Also, if I take more than 105 in the community college, will the GE courses taken at the community college count toward my requirements?

Although only 105 quarter (70 semester) units can be applied towards Units Earned from 2-year institutions, students will receive Subject Credit if the transfer course articulates to a CPP course (per Assist.org).

Top

I passed the GWT and it’s not on my DPR. How long does it take to show up?

It takes approximately 4 weeks after the student has taken the GWT to appear on their DPR.

Top

I took a transfer course that articulates to HST 201 and it is not satisfying the American Institutions Requirement on my DPR. However, it satisfies the US History requirement. What is the difference?

Only courses listed in your CPP Catalog can satisfy the CPP American Institutions Requirement.

Top

Courses for my major on my DPR are not the same as in the catalog. Why?

Check the CURRENT ACADEMIC OBJECTIVE box at the beginning of your DPR, the Requirement Terms must be the same catalog year for the PROGRAM and PLAN.  And, if your major has an OPTION, it must also display under SUB-PLAN for your degree to populate correctly.  If you have not yet declared an option, see your academic advisor.  Otherwise, contact your Transfer & Graduation Advisor via the Online Inquiry Form at Degree Progress Report.

Top

Are my In-Progress courses included in my DPR?

Yes.  Courses in progress used to satisfy degree requirements as if they have been successfully completed.  They are identified as Yellow Triangles and are being calculated in units.  If these courses are not successfully completed with the required grades, the courses will be removed from the sections they initially showed as satisfying.
