CAPP is an acronym that stands for Curriculum, Advising, and Program Planning. It is an automated degree evaluation housed in the University Registrar's Office that allows students to see their degree requirements and to track their progress towards graduation. The information available in CAPP is known as a CAPP report, but many advisors simply refer to it as a degree evaluation.
Depending on a student's academic major and when they started at UNCG, some students might still use a paper degree audit instead of the CAPP report. Students using these should request them from the University Registrar's Office website at least two weeks before they are needed for advising. Because these are updated by hand, paper audits are only updated once a semester.
How do I access a student's CAPP report?
For information on interpreting the Degree Evaluation with a student, use the University Registrar's Tutorial.
A student's catalog year is determined by the semester during which the major is declared. For example, if a student arrived in fall 2004 as a Dance major, the catalog year for that student would be 2004-2005. If, however, that student decided in fall 2005 to drop the Dance major and declare a major in Theater instead, the student would follow Theater requirements for the 2005-2006 catalog year because the Theater major was declared in fall 2005.
Catalog years go from the fall of one year to the summer of the next year. Therefore, if a student changed majors in the spring or summer of 2006, that student would still follow major requirements for the 2005-2006 catalog year. If that student changed majors in the fall of 2006, then the requirements for the 2006-2007 catalog year would be followed.
For questions about changing a student's catalog year, contact the University Registrar's Office.
The Comprehensive Articulation Agreement, or CAA, is an agreement between North Carolina community colleges and the senior institutions that comprise the University of North Carolina system. The agreement allows students who graduate from community colleges in North Carolina with associate degrees in arts (AA) or sciences (AS) to transfer to UNCG as juniors who have already met the General Education Core (except for foreign language), as long as their overall GPA at the community college was at least 2.0 and they earned a grade of C or better in all of their CAA courses.
More information can be also be found in the UNCG Undergraduate Bulletin.
The Greater Greensboro Consortium (GGC) allows currently enrolled, degree-seeking UNCG students to take courses at Bennett College, Elon University, Guilford College, High Point University, Greensboro College, Guilford Technical Community College, and North Carolina A & T State University. Students should not be enrolled in more hours at a Consortium institution than they are enrolled in at UNCG.
Although they will be taking courses at another institution, they will pay UNCG's rates for tuition and fees. Thus, any grades earned for courses taken through the Consortium are calculated into the student's GPA at UNCG.
UNCG students who wish to enroll in courses at Consortium schools may obtain the necessary forms from the University Registrar's Office.
Degree Works is the degree evaluation system that replaced CAPP in Fall 2014 and is used for undergraduate students on a bulletin year of 2014-2015 or later. This includes students who changed their original majors in Fall 2014 or later, and those who are considering a change of major and would like to complete a what-if analysis. It is a web-based tool to help students and advisors monitor progress toward degree completion. Degree Works integrates degree requirements from the Undergraduate Bulletin with a student’s completed coursework to produce an easy-to-read degree evaluation. The evaluation is divided into block requirements that outline how courses taken count toward degree requirements. Checkboxes exist within each block to easily identify which courses and requirements are completed. Degree Works is designed to enhance the academic advisement process and is not intended to replace face-to-face academic advisement.More information is available in the General Instruction Guide for Advisors and about What-if Analyses.
A paper degree audit is a form that shows all of the requirements for graduation in a particular major. This is the degree evaluation system that was used by the University before transitioning over to the CAPP Report. While most students use a CAPP Report, some students who began at UNCG prior to 2003 might still use a paper audit. To determine if a student uses a paper audit, click here.
Unlike the CAPP Report, a paper degree audit is not automated; it is completed by hand. Students must request an updated version each semester by filling out the Degree Audit Request Form in the University Registrar's Office.
The Foundations for Learning (FFL) program at UNCG is designed to foster students' academic and personal success, holistic development, and seamless transitions throughout their undergraduate experience at UNCG. Through three distinct FFL courses facilitated by an FFL Instructor and Peer Academic Leader (PAL), students engage in an active exploration of higher education and the various resources, skills, and competencies essential to academic success at UNCG. These courses are typically recommended for students in their first semester at UNCG or those who would like additional classroom support while transitioning into the University.
For more information on the FFL course curriculum, please visit the Students First Office.
- Humanities and Fine Arts (HFA, GLT, GFA, GPR)
- Historical Perspectives (GHP)
- Natural Sciences (GNS)
- Social and Behavioral Sciences (GSB)
- Reasoning and Discourse (GRD)
- GEC Marker Courses (GL, GN, WI, SI)
GEC Requirements are part of UNCG's General Education Program. At UNCG, the General Education Program provides students with the foundational knowledge, skills, and values necessary to be critical and creative thinkers, ethical decision-makers, effective communicators, and collaborative and engaged global citizens.
The General Education Core (GEC) is made up of several categories, as follows:
For more information on GEC Requirements and the courses that fulfill these categories, use the UNCG Undergraduate Bulletin.
In addition to the categories above, students pursuing an academic major within the College of Arts & Sciences must also fulfill CAR Requirements. For more information on these, click here or contact the College of Arts & Sciences Advising Center.
Many of UNCG's academic departments also offer a Minor. These require a minimum of 15 semester hours (though often more hours are required). Additionally, at least 9 semester hours must be completed at UNCG. Minors are not printed on diplomas, but are listed on transcripts.
For a complete list of minors at UNCG, search the UNCG Undergraduate Bulletin.
UNCG students do have the option of pursuing a second major. However, a second major does not entitle the student to two diplomas. In order to complete a second major, a student must fulfill requirements for both primary and secondary majors through the Dual Degree Program.
If a student pursues a second major, they will fulfill GEC requirements for only the primary major. The student will have to complete all Writing and Speaking Intensive requirements for the primary major, plus one Writing Intensive and one Speaking Intensive Course for the secondary major. Coursework may be shared between the two majors.
