Academic Advising

Academic Credit Report

This report is a summary of how transfer work from other institutions was accepted into the IUS curriculum.  [Work taken at other IU campuses is part of the Indiana Unviersity official transcript and is not considered "transfer work."]  The Academic Credit Report is accessed through OneStart under "My Academics and Grades."  Find "Transfer, Test, Other Credit, click the link:  View Academic Credit Report.

AAR (Academic Advising Report)

The AAR is an on-line, dynamic report, accessed through OneStart.  The report analyzes, on demand, course credits earned to date (transfer, test, IU coursework) and applies requirements based on your declared major or intended major.  The resulting report shows credit applied to requirements and requirements still needed to complete the degree.

The AAR (Adademic Advising Report) is also a tool one can use to find a list of courses that will meet the general education requirements.

  1. Go to the Student Center in OneStart.
  2. Click link “My Academics & Grades” on left side of resulting screen.
  3. Under the Advising banner on the resulting screen, click on “View My Advisement Report”
  4. Using the pull-down menus in the resulting screen, ensure that the Institution is set to “Southeast” and Report Type set to “AAR & Transcript”
  5. Click yellow “Process Request” button at bottom of screen.

The resulting report will begin with an advising transcript, summarizing all transfer, test, and other credit; as well as a semester by semester listing of all courses completed at IUS and other IU campuses. Mid-way through the report, it will display General Education Requirements, showing how courses already completed fulfill certain requirements; and displaying grids of course options that will fulfill other requirements. Pay special attention to any recommendations, (usually in brackets).   These recommendations are guides to how, by taking a specific course, you can fulfill both a General Education and a major requirement.


There is a "What-If" component to this module which allows you to see how credit earned would apply to a different major.  Go to OneStart, My Student Center, My Academics & Grades and under the Advising banner, click on "What-If Advisement Report."  [At this same location, you may also view your "unofficial" transcript, Academic Credit Report, or Grades.
