AAR Frequently Asked Questions


  • Class isn't filling in correctly
    • Course is used in a requirement of a different program (i.e. major instead of a minor). An AAR personalization is required to fix this specific example.
    • If the course has a minimum earned grade and the student earns a grade below that (i.e. “C” or better is required, student has earned a “C” or lower OR an “S”). In the instance of an “S” grade, an AAR personalization would be required.
    • If a version of the course is too old (i.e. return student who completed the course many years prior) or it is earned as exam credit and the requirement is not set up to recognize those. In the case of the old course, an AAR personalization would be required. In the case of an exam credit, the advisor can fill out the AAR Issue Request Form.
    • Requirement term on the students program is older than the inclusion of the course in the program requirements. The requirement term on a students program is set by the term in which the student first declared the major, minor, or certificate. This requirement term does not automatically as new changes are entered in the curricular process.
    • Effective dates of AAR requirements match requirement terms which line up with the start dates of the terms approved by UW System.
    • If you are still running into issues, please submit your request through the AAR Issue Request Form.
  • Milestones may take up to 24-hours after completed entry to appear on a student record.
  • Milestones can be added by the department in charge of the program or the college, depending on what the milestone pertains to.
  • Milestones are non-course requirements that students may be required to complete prior to graduation.
  • Some milestones may be required to enroll in specific courses or admission into specific majors.
  • Milestones are not done through the Registrar's Office. Please contact your college or department for further assistance.

Students must take required courses in their major and their minor on a conventional grade basis. The same course units may not be counted in both the major(s) and the minor(s). In those cases in which the same courses are required in more than one major and/or minor, departments will determine appropriate additional courses to meet the minimum unit requirements for each. The minimum unit requirements must be met for each major and each minor.
