A student's GPS consists of a series of sections, which are called "blocks." These blocks are programmed to check the degree requirements for each school. The blocks contain an easy-to-use color code:GPS-sample-colors
  • A green box indicates that a requirement has been completed.
  • A blue box indicates that a requirement is in the process of being completed. Most often this means that a student is currently enrolled in a course that will satisfy the requirement.
  • A red box indicates that a requirement still needs to be completed.
  • A yellow box indicates that a student should talk with an advisor about that requirement. Students will rarely see a yellow box, as it is reserved for particularly complex situations that require a conversation with an advisor.
