Pace of Progression

All students will be evaluated each semester to determine that they are making satisfactory pace of progression through their academic program. A minimum 67% cumulative completion ratio will be required at each evaluation period. Pace of progression is defined as the ratio of the cumulative number of credit hours completed divided by the cumulative number of credit hours attempted.

How to use the Pace of Progression Calculator:

Note: If you have ever taken learning support coursework, please do not use this calculator. Stop and email finaid@westga.edu for further assistance.

 Steps (UWG Students):

  • Log into your myUWG account.
  • Once logged in, click the "Banweb" tab at the top.
  • Click the red "Banweb" button to log into Banweb
  • Click "Student Services and Financial Aid"
  • Click "View Student Information" (located near the bottom of the list")
  • Choose the most current semester from the Drop-down box
  • Use the "Transcript Level" box to select your current grade level "Undergraduate or Graduate"
  • Use the "Transcript Type" box and select "Student Copy"
  • Scroll down to select the appropriate numbers to input on the calculator below.
    • Note: The numbers seen on your Banweb account will not reflect your current hours of enrollment for the current semester. You will need to add your current enrolled hours to the applicable field on the calculator for both UWG Institutional Attempted and UWG Institutional Earned. See "Wolfie" example below.
  • For issues or clarification, please email finaid@westga.edu

Steps (UWG Faculty/Staff):

Note: If the student has ever taken learning support coursework (courses beginning in "00", ex. 0098), please do not use this calculator. Stop and email finaid@westga.edu for further assistance.

Note: SHATERM does not include the student's current enrolled hours. You will need to add the student's current enrolled hours to the applicable field on the calculator for both UWG Institutional Attempted and UWG Institutional Earned. See "Wolfie" example below.

 

Example:

Wolfie has 67 UWG Institutional Attempted Hours, 64 UWG Institutional Earned Hours, and 0 Transfer Earned Hours. Wolfie is also enrolled in 15 credit hours for spring semester, but thinks he will only complete 12 of those credit hours. To determine what Wolfie's Pace of Progression will be after the spring semester, add 67+15 (that number will be his UWG Institutional Attempted Hours). Also, add 64+12 (that number will be his UWG Institutional Earned Hours). Input the totals for both sets of numbers on the calculator and input the 0 for transfer earned to obtain Wolfie's Pace of Progression.
