FOR RELEASE--Feb. 20, 2012
University of New Mexico-Gallup academic advisors are scheduling trainings for students to use LOBO Trax degree audit, an advisement tool developed for all UNM students that has been in use since February 2010. LOBO Trax checks students’ credits as they progress toward graduation, and is accessible by students via their Loboweb accounts.
The academic advisors have scheduled training sessions on LOBO Trax on Wednesday evenings and on Thursdays. Advisement holds will be placed on students’ registration to make it mandatory for UNM-Gallup students to learn this process.
Students are required to sign up for the training sessions beginning Feb. 22 through April 27 by calling the Academic Advisement Department at 505.863.7706. Students who have already learned LOBO Trax should contact the department as well.
LOBO Trax produces a report when the student has listed a program or major. When students do not have a declared major, and are reported as unclassified or non-degree, then LOBO Trax will not produce a report.
“The report is a self-guidance tool that, when used correctly, will help them complete their degree objective at UNM and UNM-Gallup,” said Paula Sayers, advisor. By using this audit, students will not have to ask what courses they should take next because the report will present the information to the student, Sayers added.
