Gradtracker FAQ - Using What If

What is the What If feature?

The What If function allows you to hypothetically change your major, minor, or concentration. Your new What If audit will show you what coursework is required for this major, minor, or concentration, what courses you have taken that satisfy requirements, and what courses are still left for you to take.

If I use the What If feature does this mean that I have changed my major?

No. The What If function is for information purposes only. You will see the header What If Audit displayed at the top of the audit whenever an audit is run on a What If scenario

I'm thinking of changing my major/minor/concentration. Will I be able to see how my current classes fit into my What If major/minor/concentration?

Yes. The What If function will perform an audit based on the hypothetical major/minor/concentration and will show how your completed, current, and planned coursework meets the requirements of the hypothetical major/minor/concentration.

Can my advisor see my What If scenario?

Since What If scenarios are not stored on GradTracker, your advisor can only see your results if the two of you work through a What If procedure together.

Can I view multiple What If scenarios on the same screen?

Yes. GradTracker will allow you to select more than one major at a time, or to select multiple major(s), minor(s) and concentration(s).

Can I save my What If scenario?

No. What If plans are not saved on GradTracker. You would need to run a new What If scenario next time you log in to see it again

Can I print my What If scenario?

Yes. If you want to share this with your advisor at a later date, you should print your What If scenario.

If I like what I see in my What If scenario, how do I initiate those changes?

Speak with your advisor. There is a paper process to change your major/minor/concentration. You may pick up the Major/Minor Declaration form in the registrar's office.
