Stellic Frequently Asked Questions

In Stellic, templates contain the suggested sequence of courses for each degree program. When a template is applied to a student, the suggested sequence of courses are then applied to the student’s degree plan. The student is able to add or remove courses within the degree planner at any time.
Any changes made in S3 will appear in Stellic the next day.
Exceptions are made on the student’s audit. If an advisor has permission to be able to make an exception, a series of three dots will appear next to categories or courses. When the advisor selects the three dots, a menu will be available, which includes make exception. Choose 'waiver' or 'substitution' from the drop down box and enter in the information required. Click 'submit'. The audit for the student will refresh and the exception will be applied.

This may be due to double counting limits set on the audit file. If the double counting limit is reached and the student can still double count the course, an exception can be on the student’s record.

For more information on setting double-counting limits, refer to the Stellic Knowledge Base for Advisors & Admins, located on the Stellic Guides & Training webpage. 

The 'add concentration' button will be available at the bottom of the audit (for those who were given this permission). Click the 'add concentration' button and search for the concentration to add. Select the 'plus' button and confirm that you want to add the concentration. The audit will refresh and the concentration will be added to the student’s record.
A student can add programs (majors, additional majors, and minors) to their audit by selecting the 'modify programs' button and choosing the program to add. It will appear with a not declared label in the list of programs attached to the student’s record.
Advisors can open up the audit file using the 'Programs' tab and select the 'try on a student' button. This will test the audit against the student’s record. Note: This can only be used when the advisor has permission to view the student’s record in Stellic.
For a course to count multiple times, it must be marked as repeatable in S3.
