This report is an update on an advisement tool used in the School of Engineering at the City College of New York, an urban institution of higher learning, to retain students from traditionally under-represented groups. The manual requisite check process was initially introduced in 2001 as a way to insure that students had the necessary requisites for engineering courses. Since that time the method has been refined and has become a powerful tool for advisement and curriculum development. This paper will explore some of the advantages of using such a process by presenting both qualitative and quantitative analyses.
