Degree Progress Report replaces ARTS form

LAWRENCE — Students can now begin tracking their academic progress using the new Degree Progress Report (DPR) system. This new tool makes it easier to track progress toward completion of degree requirements through the Kyou portal.

The DPR replaces the Academic Requirements Tracking System (ARTS), the previous online academic reporting tool. The DPR is a report that:

  • Lists student coursework completed at KU and at other schools from which they have submitted official transcripts
  • Lists student coursework currently in progress
  • Places student coursework into degree requirement sections
  • Identifies KU school requirements they still need to satisfy in order to graduate

Mark Pickerel, systems administrator for Student Information Systems, was instrumental in leading the project. “There are many benefits of the new DPR,” said Pickerel. “Students will appreciate how much easier it will be to see what courses they have completed and which ones they still need to take to graduate.”

Several university departments collaborated to create this new system, including Student Information Systems, the Office of the Vice Provost for Student Affairs and the Office of the University Registrar.
