Degree Progress Report (DRP)

The Degree Progress Report (DPR) is used as an advising tool. It is a system-generated report that shows a student's progress toward completing major requirements, General Education, and remaining degree requirements. Students and advisors have access to run DPR’s. If you need assistance in running or interpreting your DPR, please schedule an appointment with an advisor or find out when walk-in hours are by calling 559.278.0300 or log in to your student portal at my.fresnostate.edu and click on “Grades First”.
