FAQs about using "What If"

Using the What If Feature

What is the What If feature?

The What If function allows you to hypothetically change your degree, major, minor or concentration. The What If audit will show you what coursework is required for the new program, what courses you have taken that satisfy requirements, and what courses you still need to complete.

If I use the What If feature, does that mean I've changed my program?

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 about changing my program. Will I be able to see how my current classes fit into my new program?

Yes. The What If feature will perform an audit based on the hypothetical degree/major/minor/concentration/diploma/certificate and will show you how your completed and current coursework meets the requirements of the new program.

Can my advisor see my What If scenario?

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

Can I save a What If scenario?

What If audits are not saved in MyGRADplan but you can save them as PDFs.

Can I print a What If scenario?

Yes. If you want to share it with your advisor at a later date, you can create a PDF and print your What If scenario.

If I like what I see in a What If scenario, how do I initiate the changes?

Speak with your advisor.
