Academic Advising Programs

E-Advising Tools

General Education Planning

GPA Calculator

The GPA Calculator is an excellent tool that allows you to help students compute their grade point average and project future GPA’s based on projected grades for current semesters.  This tool can help determine the grades needed to achieve a certain GPA or determine if they will be on academic notice.

Degree Progress Report

The Degree Progress Report (DPR) is used to advise students in regards to all CSU Chico graduation requirements including General Education, general graduation, and major/minor requirements. The DPR opens in the advisee student center tab.

Smart Planner

Smart Planner is an interactive online system that functions in PeopleSoft to help students be more proactive with their course planning. The result is a more efficient and engaging experience that gives students a visual presentation of their current academic status and their future path. The intent is to aid students in completing their degree quicker and more effectively.
