Below are some Frequently Asked Questions for both faculty/staff and students.
WUachieve is used for degree audit in the Brown School, the McKelvey School of Engineering, the Sam Fox School, and the School of Continuing & Professional Studies. Undergraduate Arts & Sciences uses WUachieve for major and minor programs; degree requirements can be found in the PlanIT. The Law School uses WUachieve for their JD program only.
Students in non-participating schools may not have access to WUachieve. Please note, this access is driven by the student’s primary school, so dual students may have trouble accessing the system. Please reach out to the appropriate WUachieve school administrator with questions.
The quick reference guide and basic user guide above are a great place to start. If additional assistance is needed, please reach out to the appropriate WUachieve school administrator listed above. Advisors in the College of Arts & Sciences should contact the appropriate major/minor department.
While much of the student data in WUachieve is real-time, some data is subject to an overnight load process. Advisor/advisee relationships update overnight. If you are unable to access a newer advisee, try waiting overnight. If you still cannot access the student, reach out to the appropriate WUachieve school administrator listed above. Advisors in the College of Arts & Sciences should contact the appropriate major/minor department.
Students can click on the quick reference guide above. If additional assistance is needed, please reach out to the appropriate WUachieve school administrator listed above. Students in the College of Arts & Sciences should contact the appropriate major/minor department.
WUachieve can be used for degree planning, but is ultimately a degree audit tool, i.e. it processes already enrolled and completed coursework. Although the system allows for what-if audits (on programs that are not yet declared) it does not allow for what-if courses. Please continue to work closely with your advisor/advisee and the registration worksheet when planning courses.
Waitlisted courses do not appear in WUachieve. The system displays only enrolled and completed courses. And remember, the system assumes any In Progress course (flagged with IP) will be completed with a satisfactory grade.
Because audits are a reflection of the student record at a single point in time, it’s important to always run a fresh audit. If courses are missing, please ensure you have requested a fresh audit. The audit should have a day/time stamp at the top.
An audit requirement will show an IP (In Progress) if any course appearing in that requirement is IP. This appears as a blue icon with three white dots. Sometimes the system will choose to use an IP course in lieu of a completed course. Sometimes the requirement does not allow excess courses to fall away and will retain IP coursework.
In any case, WUachieve is a tool for estimating your progress towards a degree. Your school will make the final determination regarding program completion. If you have questions about an In Progress requirement, please reach out to the appropriate WUachieve school administrator listed above. Students in the College of Arts & Sciences should contact the appropriate major/minor department.
Once approved by your school or department, exceptions should be entered into WUachieve by the exception processor in your area. Not all administrative users can make exceptions. Due to the limited number of exception processors, it may take several days to see the exception reflected on your audit. This is especially true in the spring as we prepare for May Commencement. Please be patient.
To check on the status of an exception in WUachieve, please reach out to the appropriate WUachieve school administrator listed above. Students in the College of Arts & Sciences should contact the appropriate major/minor department.
