What is myBLUEprint?
myBLUEprint is a web-based tool used to monitor academic progress toward degree completion. It combines degree requirements and completed coursework into an easy-to-read worksheet. The color-coded worksheet allows you to easily view requirements that are still needed to earn your degree. The myBLUEprint degree audit is used to certify completion of degree requirements for graduation.

A myBLUEprint worksheet is a review of past, current, and “planned” coursework that provides information about completed and outstanding requirements necessary to fulfill a degree, major, minor, or concentration.
Yes. By clicking on a course in the worksheet, you can view the course description, prerequisites required, and available course sections for the upcoming term. Course sections in myBLUEprint do not show course location. The Schedule of Classes search feature in the student portal will show course location.
The What If feature allows students to hypothetically change their major, minor or concentration. The What If worksheet shows courses required for the hypothetical major, minor, or concentration; courses already taken that satisfy requirements; and courses still needed to complete the program. The following data elements should be populated when requesting a What If worksheet to ensure the most accurate data is retrieved: Catalog Term, Program, Major, Concentration (if applicable), and Minor (if desired).
The Term Calculator shows a cumulative GPA after filling in hypothetical grade information. You enter anticipated grades for in-progress courses, and myBLUEprint utilizes earned credits and current GPA, combined with in-progress grades projected, to estimate a new GPA based on the data entered.
The Graduation Calculator allows you to enter the GPA you would like to have at graduation, and shows what GPA you must average over your remaining semesters in order to obtain the desired GPA at graduation.
The Advice Calculator shows you how many credits must be earned at a certain GPA to achieve the desired GPA.
Please consult with your advisor. While we have worked closely with all departments across campus, every unique situation is impossible to anticipate.
Contact your advisor to get your major, minor, or concentration updated as appropriate.
Contact your advisor.
At least four times a semester:
- Before meeting with an advisor, noting any questions or concerns
- After registration, to ensure that courses apply to requirements as expected
- After grades are posted.
- Anytime a change is made to classes scheduled, major, minor, or concentration.
The myBLUEprint worksheet is a tool to assist with planning and tracking progress toward graduation. Your transcript is the official university record.
In most cases, yes. myBLUEprint is programmed to recognize that some courses may be used to fulfill more than one requirement. If you have questions, consult with your advisor.
I’m working on two degrees (B.A. and B.S.). Only one appears. How can I review the progress on the other degree?
Look at the degree information next to your name at the top of the screen. You’ll notice that the degree box has a drop-down arrow. Use this to select your second degree. If a second degree does not appear in the drop-down menu, contact the academic advisor for your second degree.
This is a wildcard. If the @ sign appears with a course number after it (e.g., @ 30000:49999), you can take any course number in that range in any subject. If it appears after the subject (e.g. PSY @), you can take any psychology course.
The Plans Tool allows you and your advisor to plan courses semester by semester, considering when each class should be taken sequentially. You should develop a plan with your advisor. The State of Indiana encourages students to complete their baccalaureate degree in four years by taking 15 credits each semester. For more information, please see the state’s website.
Yes. Advisors can see your plan and participate in the planning process. There is a Notes section within the plan that allows advisors to communicate additional information.
No. The Plans Tool is for planning purposes only. You will register through the student portal.
No. The Plans Tool is for planning purposes only. Final course schedules are available to students online shortly before registration. If you discover that a planned course is not being offered in a given semester, your plan should be adjusted with the assistance of an advisor.
Yes, but mark only one as active. We will collect information in the planners to assist departments in planning future offerings to help meet your goal toward graduation.
