Penguin PASS: Student Instruction Guide


What is Penguin PASS and how do I use it?


Penguin Planning for Academic Student Success (Penguin PASS)

Penguin PASS is a system designed to help you understand your academic progress and requirements your program of study. It does not replace meeting with your advisor to plan and formulate a schedule for progress toward your degree. Penguin PASS produces an audit of your completed work, requirements and in progress courses based on your declared major, minor and/or program and catalog year. 

Reports from this system are developed from the YSU Course Catalog.  Audit worksheets cannot be used as an official transcript.

Penguin PASS provides Youngstown State University students a visual checklist of courses and objectives required for graduation, including major requirements, major electives, capstone, as well as each general education curriculum (Gen Ed.) requirement.  Please confirm worksheet with your academic advisor.

An audit is not your academic transcript, and it is not an official notification of completion of degree or certificate requirements.
