Degree Plan

For All Undergraduate and Graduate Students Admitted Prior to Fall 2014:
You are responsible for all requirements of the catalog under which you will be graduated. During your first semester of attendance at the university, the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Business Administration, and School of Education, Health Professions & Human Development staff advisor will initiate your degree plan.  The staff advisor will work with you and your faculty advisor to complete a plan for approval.  You will sign the plan.  The advisor and appropriate school dean also sign when approving it, and the Office of the Registrar/Student Records validates the degree plan before it becomes an official document.  You will receive a copy when the process is complete, ordinarily during the same semester in which the process began.

The original degree plan is kept on file electronically in the Office of the Registrar/Student Records and you and the school of your plan will each receive a copy.  Since the degree plan represents your commitment to complete the requirements and the university’s commitment to hold you accountable for meeting those requirements, it is a very important document.  In order to change it in any way, secure a substitution form from the school office of your plan.  The academic advisor and school dean must approve the change and the Office of the Registrar/Student Records validate it before it becomes official.

Please note that if you interrupt enrollment for more than one calendar year, you will need a new degree plan upon your return to UHV.

For Undergraduate Students with LESS than 45 credit hours - Admitted Fall 2014 and after:

You are responsible for all requirements of the catalog under which you will be graduated.  Undergraduate students with less than 45 total credit hours (transfer and UHV hours) will be advised by a Student Success Coach.  A formal degree progress report (DPR) will be initiated after reaching 45 total credit hours.

For Undergraduate Students with MORE than 45 credit hours and Graduate Students - Admitted Fall 2014 and after:

You are responsible for all requirements of the catalog under which you will be graduated.  The School of Arts & Sciences, the School of Business Administration, and the School of Education, Health Professions & Human Development staff advisor will initiate your degree progress report (DPR) in the myUHV system.  The staff advisor will work with you and your faculty advisor to complete this DPR.  You will complete an acknowledgement form in the myUHV system, verifying that  you’ve reviewed the DPR, and will abide by the policies and requirements for the intended program.  You will not be able to register beyond your first semester until you have acknowledged your DPR and the associated policies.  If you change academic schools, a new DPR acknowledgement form will have to be done.  You will be able to access  your DPR in the myUHV system anytime, once the advisor has released it to you.

Since the DPR represents your commitment to complete the requirements and the university’s commitment to hold you accountable for meeting those requirements, it is a very important document.  In order to change it in any way, secure a substitution form from the school office of your plan.  The academic advisor and school dean must approve the change and the Office of the Registrar/Student Records validates it before it becomes official.  Please note that if you interrupt enrollment for more than one calendar year, you will need a new DPR upon your return to UHV.

Undergraduate students, please see the “45 Hours to Undergraduate Major Policy” section of this catalog for additional information regarding degree plans.
