What is my Degree Progress Report (DPR)?

DPR is an overview of your academic status/degree progress based on your curriculum requirements, which is based on your transfer credits, test/ military credits and CPP completed/ enrolled courses.

What does CPP Connect do?

CPP Connect is a Learning Resource Center where you can message professors, view your class schedule and calendar.Also, you can view and make an advising appointment with an ENV advisor.
