PAWS Report

PAWS Report

What is PAWS?

PAWS is an automated credit summary, for undergraduate degrees, that provides students with a listing of all coursework required for graduation from CSUSB.  It allows students to map out their course selection at any point in their academic career by comparing the classes they have taken or are now taking to those they will need to take in order to complete their undergraduate degree program.  Students will receive an email notification sent to their CSUSB Email, once their PAWS is ready for review.  Once notified, students will need to log into MyCoyote to view and print a copy of their PAWS report.
