GradPath is the Graduate College’s degree audit system that facilitates the tracking and monitoring of graduate student academic progress. GradPath allows the student, their program, and the Graduate College to see where a student is in their academic journey at a glance. Students are able to fill in and submit forms online through UAccess Student. These forms include the responsible conduct of research statement, the graduate plan of study, graduate committee where relevant, and so forth. Forms have some automatic checking built in that prevent common errors (e.g., typos in course numbers, illegible faculty names, etc.). There is also built-in logic to notify students when there is a problem with their forms, such as courses outside our time limit. Such messages include links to policy.

The automated workflow engine routes the electronic forms to everyone who needs to see or approve them - each approver is notified by email when a form is awaiting review and approval, with a link in the email to go straight to the form.

Departmental Approvers need only to be logged in (off-campus use requires VPN). To access GradPath, they will need to have completed FERPA training.

We are happy to answer any questions that you might have. Please contact the degree counselor for your program.
