The Academic Advisement Report (AAR) is designed to give you advice on what courses you will need to complete your degree, as well as warn you if you have broken any of the various rules that govern which courses may be used in a particular degree program. While the AAR is a useful guide, the ultimate authority on all academic requirements in the Faculty of Arts and Science is the Arts and Science Calendar; if there is a discrepancy, the online Calendar requirements take precedence. An AAR may be run through SOLUS, and it is highly recommended that all upper year students run a report at least once a year, before course selection. You should also run a report before applying to graduate. The AAR has been designed to closely parallel the layout of the Plan requirements section of the Calendar, so it may be useful to review these requirements before you run your AAR.
