Have you selected your UB Curriculum (UBC) Global and Thematic Pathway courses?
UB students should select their UB Pathway courses by the end of their first semester at UB. If you do not know how to choose your pathway courses, you can view a tutorial on the Pathfinder Tool. Many students also find it helpful to schedule a meeting with an academic advisor to discuss the process of selecting pathway courses.
Once a student has selected their pathway courses, they will send them to HUB.
In HUB, students are able to the Plan tool to assign pathway courses to future semesters.
Another HUB tool that students use to track their progress in completing all of the UBC areas is the Academic Requirements report.
The HUB Milestones box also provides a quick view with regard to your progress on the UB Curriculum areas.
What is an Academic Requirement Report?
The HUB Academic Advisement Report (AAR) is an advising tool that tracks progress toward graduation by showing how courses taken meet graduation requirements for all approved undergraduate programs. In HUB the AAR is labelled as an Academic Requirements report. In individualized reports, HUB summarizes all UB Curriculum and program requirements, indicating those that have been satisfied; computes the cumulative GPA; totals all credit hours taken; lists repeated courses and those taken S/U; notes incomplete courses; indicates test scores and credits granted for AP and CLEP examinations; and lists all transfer and UB courses taken.
The HUB Academic Advisement Report 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.
HUB Academic Advisement Reports are available for all matriculated undergraduate students via MyUB and can be generated for the current approved major or any other program when considering alternative majors. Students should examine their reports carefully and speak to an advisor if there are questions or discrepancies in the report. Read more at Undergraduate Catalog – HUB Academic Advisement Report.
Finding your HUB Academic Requirement Report

Step 1. Click the Other Academic Drop-down Arrow
Step 2. From the Drop Down list, select the Academic Requirement link.
Step 3. Double click the Double Arrow icon.
Step 4. If you have difficulty opening or understanding your Academic Requirement’s Report, speak with an academic advisor. Your assigned advising office, location, and phone number are listed in the HUB Advisor box.
All of your final grades for Spring Semester 2108 should have been posted to the View My Grades section of a students HUB Student Center. In this article we will use the abbreviation gpa to represent Grade Point Average. If you do not know how a Grade Point Average is computed, refer to this article How a Grade Point Average is Computed.
The View My Grades section will show the final grade for each course taken this semester, and also compute your Semester Grade Point Average and also your Cumulative (Overall) UB Grade Point Average.
The Academic Standards Process is run once grades are posted at the conclusion of each semester.
- A student is in Good Academic Standing, if their Semester and UB Overall Grade Point Averages (GPA) of 2.0 or above.
- If a student’s semester or overall gpa is less than 2.00 then they are considered to be in Not Good Academic Standing, in which case they may be placed on Academic Warning or Academic Probation. If both a semester and overall gpa is less than 2.00, a student has a Grade Point Deficit (GPD). A GPD is the number of Grade Points below a 2.00 Overall GPA.
- Where to find a Grade Point Deficit. A student’s GPD is listed in the most recent graded semester on the HUB Unofficial Transcript.
- If a student has a Grade Point Deficit they should contact the Advising Office that they have been working with as soon as possible.
Acceptance Criteria Grade Point Average
- Each undergraduate major has established Acceptance Criteria for a Major to gain formal entrance into the program. The Acceptance Criteria involves completion of specified courses, and earning a specified grade point average in those courses as well as a specified overall grade point average.
- A Student can find their Acceptance Criteria GPA on their HUB Academic Requirements report, as long as they are coded as intended for that major.
- If a student is coded as Undecided or a different major but wants to see if they meet the Acceptance Criteria for a specific major, they can run a HUB What-if Report for that major.
