Understanding your HUB My Requirements report – Course History section

Posted October 9, 2017 in Did You Know?, HUB Tips

  1. In this post we are going to look at the Course History section of a HUB My Requirement report.  We would start by clicking the Collapse All button.
  2. Throughout the My Requirements report you will see green triangle icons, they will either Expand or Collapse a section.
  3. The Legend is located toward the top of the page.  Currently three icons are displayed. One for courses that have been Completed, In-Progress, or Planned. You will see the respective icons listed next to each course in the Status Column. If you have assigned courses to your HUB Planner, and then assigned them to a semester, you will see that Planned courses are indicated using a BLUE Star.
  4. The first column in the Course History table is the Course Column.  In this example you will see that all but one course is a UB course, or is a transfer course that has an exact UB course articulation. In the third row, the course is MTH 141, if you follow the row across to the Grade column, the grade displayed is TB. T in this cases indicates that it is a transfer course, the second letter indicates the Letter Grade earned for the course. In the first row, you will see PSY 101.  The grade for this course is listed at TP. In this case TP is some form of Alternative Credit.  Alternative credit only award PASS Credits – these courses are not used in the computation of your grade point average.
  5. If a course has been completed, you will see a letter grade in the Grade Column.  If the course was taken at UB, you will see a Letter grade from A – F. UB uses a 4.0 Grading Scale. To see the Grade Point Value for each letter grade refer to the Catalog – Explanation of Grades section.

Have you looked at your My Requirements Report in HUB?

Posted October 6, 2017 in Did You Know?, HUB Tips

The My Requirements report is a very useful tool in terms of planning and evaluating your academic path.

The HUB Academic Advising Report

The HUB Academic Advisement Report, designed to be used in conjunction with the Undergraduate and Degree Catalog, is useful in the following respects:

  • As an advising tool: to determine progress toward completing all degree requirements;
  • Applying to a department: Reports can be included in the department application process.
  • Analysis of transfer credits: to verify that all transfer credits have been recorded and applied to degree requirements.
  • Evaluation for degree conferral: Reports will be used to determine if students have met the requirements for graduation.

The My requirements report has the following sections:

  • Course History.
  • University Requirements for Graduation.  This section provides
  • UB Curriculum (General Education program).
  • Courses not Allocated to a Major, or UB Curriculum.
  • Acceptance Criteria for Major.
  • Requirements for Major.

If you have questions about the Academic Advising Report, write them down and discuss with your academic advisor.

Graduating at the end of the semester?

Posted September 21, 2017 in Did You Know?, Important Dates

Apply for Graduation: A Must Do, and Degree Checkout Status

Undergraduate Students: You must apply for graduation in your HUB Student Center (via MyUB).

You will only be able to select the Graduation Terms that are available to apply for, and you will not be able to apply for your degree more than one year in advance. You cannot be in an “Intended” plan and must be officially accepted into a major before you can apply for your degree.

Students who will be receiving two degrees (BA & BS, BFA & BA) and students in a combined degree program must apply for both degrees at the same time.

New Information: Your Degree Conferral Date (the date your degree is awarded) is now in the HUB as a “Graduation Term”; the final term (semester) before your conferral. Please be careful when choosing these dates as they can affect your ability to register and possibly your financial aid eligibility.
