Credential Progress Reports
Soon after admission, you can expect to receive a Credential Progress Report. This is your official university record which includes all the courses and requirements for the preliminary credential. It is recommended that you review this report soon after you have received it and contact a credential advisor if you have trouble interpreting it or if you note any discrepancies.
You may refer back to this document throughout your program. You may also contact a credential advisor to have an updated report printed for you later in your program.
