The Degree Progress Report helps you keep track of your degree requirements for your currently declared program(s) and how you are completing them. Your academic department may have department-specific resources for you, too.
On a DPR you will also find your grades, GPA, catalog year, and information about any transfer credit counting toward your degree and how it applies to your currently declared program. If you have questions about how transfer credit is or is not being counted – reach out to an advisor.
It’s important to remember that the DPR isn’t considered an official MSU Denver transcript or record of completed coursework. It is an advisory guide and may not reflect completed information until the final graduation check. Changing your schedule, catalog year, repeating a course, completing a course with less than the minimum required grade, changing a major, minor, or concentration, or any other changes to the academic record may impact the information reflected on the DPR. This is why it is important to check in with an advisor and review the information together.
Don’t worry, we know it’s a lot to take in. Check out the Degree Progress Report Infogram to go at your own pace.
