GradInfo / GradPlan / GradAudit / Degree Audit Training Session

Departmental Graduate Secretaries and Graduate Program Directors

The session will provide an overview of the four systems, covering system navigation, data entry, and common problems.

GradInfo is a system for collecting and retrieving information on all graduate programs, and it is used as a primary source of data for Academic Program Review.  Access to GradInfo is granted via college security officers, but access is NOT REQUIRED for attendance.

GradPlan is the web-interactive system for Ph.D. students to create, store, and/or view prior Ph.D. Degree Plans and update their post-degree placement information.  GradPlan replaces the Report of the Guidance Committee and is the path and process for final degree certification.

GradAudit extends GradPlan functionality to include a series of modules related to requirement completion, which includes automation of tasks pertaining to Comprehensive Exams, Dissertation Defense, and various Approvals leading to final degree certification, among others.

Degree Audit is an online degree certification tool to bring the Student Information System (SIS) data, GradPlan Audit milestones, and Department and College level user inputs together into the Electronic Student Academic Folder (ESAF) to confer Ph.D. Degrees.
