What-If Scenario Reports

What is the What-If Program Scenario Report?

The What-If Program Scenario Report is a simulated CARR for students considering changing their major. Students have the option to define up to three different major or minor scenarios. What-If Program Report enables you to view how your coursework would fit into another major.

Students are encouraged to run a What-If Program Scenario Report before meeting with their Academic Advisor to determine how a major or minor change will impact their progress toward degree completion.
