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.
