  • Enter Career, Program, and Plan, or use the magnifying glasses and select the correct results.
    • Career = UGRD for all undergraduate students
    • Program = A&S for Trinity students; E-UGD for Pratt students
    • Plan = a major, minor, or certificate. Advisors are only assigned to first and second majors. Many departments manage multiple majors (e.g. AB, AB2, BS, BS2)
