2. Update the major checksheet

Complete or update your Geography Major Checksheet (below) with the courses you have taken or plan on taking. Please note that students entering the program beginning in the Fall 2012 term have a different checksheet. Bring this sheet with you to your advising meeting.

3. Review your Degree Audit Report

Review your Degree Audit Report on Duckweb to make sure that your personal checksheet matches university records. If there are any discrepancies or errors, bring a copy of this report to your meeting.
