Program Advising Worksheet for Students (PAWS)
The PAWS is an automated credit summary for undergraduate students, which provides a listing of all coursework required to graduate from CSUSB. It allows students to map out their course selection at any point in their academic career by comparing the classes currently, or previously taken, as well as deficient courses required to complete a bachelor's degree. The PAWS is an excellent resource, and can be used in conjunction with the degree requirement checklists and roadmaps listed below.
PAWS reports are available via My Coyote.
Degree Requirement Checklists and Roadmaps
Degree requirement checklists provide a comprehensive list of general education, lower and upper division core, as well as concentration courses.
Roadmaps are designed to assist undergraduate students with the scheduling process. They provide a quarterly sequence of courses, enabling students to graduate in a timely manner. Although students may not maintain the exact courses indicated, a balanced combination of courses is recommended.
Administration degree requirement checklists and roadmaps are available for the 2017-2018 academic year:
