After completing a course, mark the grade you received, the semester (for example, F03 or S04), and the credits earned. 2. Fill in requirements in ink ONLY after completing a course. Do not fill in courses you intend to register for or that you are currently taking, as you may not obtain a seat or complete the course. 3. Bring the updated checksheet with you to each advising session. It is your responsibility to keep track of your progress and to be familiar with the requirements of your program. 4. Your advisor may wish to keep a second copy of your updated checksheet for his or her records. 5. Part I includes General Education categories, customized for your major. Part II includes requirements for your major. 6. If you change your major, you will need a new checksheet for that major. If you intend to complete a minor, obtain an additional checksheet for the minor. If you are in a teacher preparation program, you may need a special checksheet which includes your education requirements. 7. You can also use this checksheet to record approved transfer, AP, or CLEP exam credit. Note that the residency policy requires you to complete a minimum of 60 s.h. of coursework (including 15 of your last 30 s.h.) at SC. 8.
