Transfer Advising


Here at Chicago State University (CSU) academic advising is about you. While enrolled at CSU you and your advisor will work together to develop your academic plan. To ensure that your personal and academic needs are met, you will want to explore with an advisor your values, goals, and career objectives.

If you are coming to Chicago State University after earning credits at another institution, then you are strongly encouraged to contact the Office of Evaluation and Advisement, which will help you learn more about your transfer credit (s).

It is also highly suggested that all entering transfer students generate a Curriculum, Advising, and Program Planning (CAPP) audit before registering for any courses. CAPP is an online degree auditing system that tracks the student's progress (all courses taken including transfer hours) towards the completion of their degree. The CAPP audit provides the student information on the requirements that have been met along with providing the remaining required courses that are left to be completed. In addition, the CAPP will provide an anticipated graduation date. The student's assigned academic advisor will provide the student with instructions on how to generate their CAPP report.
