GSAS and the Registrar's Office are currently working on building out the academic progress tab in Workday so that you can see your progress towards your degree. While this is not available for all programs yet, we are adding new programs regularly and anticipate completing this project at the end of Spring 2023. Use this Workday job aid to view your progress.
Please note that, as this is still as work in progress, your information may still be incomplete, particularly for non-course milestones. If this is the case, don't panic! We are working on updating that as well.
Should you be interested in authorizing the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences employees to disclose your admissions, financial, or student status information to a third party, please complete the Authorization to Disclose Information form. Once complete, this form must be turned in to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at email@example.com.
Please note that authorization granted by this form will remain in effect until the applicant/student sends a written request to revoke consent to firstname.lastname@example.org or until the applicant/student’s file is destroyed per GSAS retention policies. Should you want to revoke an authorization, please email email@example.com to inform GSAS of your intention to revoke the authorization. GSAS will respond to your email to notify you upon processing of the revocation.
