10. This view is the PDF Version. The top of the PDF will be titled "Student Self Service What-If Report" and directly beneath, "Career Simulation Report - CAUTION: INCLUDES WHAT-IF COURSES", as to not be confused with the regular AAR or the Planner AAR. What this means is the What-If AAR includes courses that you entered as a Course Scenario and also courses in progress, so if you never enroll in the What-If course, or if drop or fail an in progress course, a Requirement Group may no longer be fulfilled, so it's important to check your regular AAR every term.
When you open the PDF version, you see requirements are grouped together. They are called Academic Requirement Groups. Academic Requirement Groups that to not have a red asterisks to the left and has "Satisfied" in black, bold print, are completed.
Academic Requirement Groups that are not complete are noted in red. Look for a bold, red asterisk *
to the left and also Not Satisfied
11. Each Requirement Group may contain one or more Requirement, which are indented below the Group. The requirements turn Satisfied
as they are fulfilled, but the *
will not go away on the Requirement Group until all
of the Requirements under that Group are Satisfied
12. The Requirement Group or Requirement will contain details below on how to fulfill it. As you begin to fulfill the requirement, courses you took will appear and the details will reflect how much closer you are to fulfilling the requirement. (Term taken and Grades earned will appear as well.) Your goal is to have no red on your AAR. Type refers to how the course was taken, including EN (Enrolled at UW-Platteville), TR (Transfer), TO (Test Out) or WH (What-If).
Remember: A requirement group will look Satisfied on the What If AAR if projected to be fulfilled with in progress and what-if courses. Look at the chart below the requirement to see what is fulfilling it. For What-If courses, the type will be "WH".
NOTE: To see how all of your collapsed Requirement Groups were fulfilled once completely Satisfied, you must look at the HTML version. See below for a link to that KB.
13. Your course history will be listed at the end of your AAR.
This will contain all transfer, test out, in-progress courses, and even the What-If courses. It also notes any repeats taken or being taken.
If you have any questions about your What If AAR, check with your advisor or contact the Registrar's Office at email@example.com or 608-342-1321.
