Advising ToolsGraduate Plan of Study (GPS) Report

The Graduate Plan of Study (or GPS) Report is your electronic road map to track your progress towards graduation. This report is accessible through your MyUCF portal. Students are encouraged to check their GPS report regularly. The GPS will display courses already completed, courses in progress, and courses that still need to be taken. Advisor notes and other program requirements are also listed on this report to help students keep current with their progress. Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with this important tool to track your progress while in your graduate program. 10Your College Resources11Resources in the CollegeKysilka Graduate Student Study
