Degree Progress Report Guide
How to Access and Read your Degree Progress Report (DPR)
Step 1: Log into your Cal Poly Portal.
Step 2: Click on the “Academics” tab.
Step 3: Click on the “Degree Progress Report” link.
Step 4: Click on “View My Degree Progress Report”
The first section of the Degree Progress Report lists your Major, Minor, Sub-Plan (Concentration), Graduation Status (if already assigned), Academic Standing, and GPAs.
Your Overall GPA will include grades for classes taken at and also outside of Cal Poly, such as community colleges. Your Cal Poly GPA will only include classes you have taken at Cal Poly.
Below are key symbols you will see throughout the Degree Progress Report and what some of these symbols mean.
Below are examples of what you might see on your Degree Progress Report
Requirement Satisfied: This requirement has been satisfied. If there is a green arrow next to the course listed for this requirement, then that means it has been fulfilled with AP/IB/Transfer/Other Credit or through a placement test.
Requirement Satisfied: If there is a green check mark next to the course listed, that means the requirement was completed through a Cal Poly Graded Course.
In Progress: This means that the requirement is currently being worked on. This usually means you are currently in a class that will satisfy the requirement once it is passed.
Requirement Not Satisfied: This requirement has not been satisfied and is currently not in progress. This means that you have not taken (or are not currently taking) a class that satisfies this requirement.
This requirement has been satisfied by way of a Special Exception such as Major or Support Substitution, individualized Course of Study, Minor or Approved Electives.
At the bottom of your Degree Progress Report, you will see a list of classes and/or credits which do not satisfy any Major, Support, Concentration, GE, or Minor requirements. These classes/credits will typically be considered “free electives”, if your major includes them in the curriculum.
If you would like to see a condensed list of your requirements and their statuses, you can collapse the text in each section by clicking on “Collapse Requirements” near the top of your Degree Progress Report.
This is what the GE Requirements section will look like once you have collapsed the requirements.
