Degree Audits

Learn how degree audits work and how you can run a degree audit to see your current status toward fulfilling your degree requirements.


The old degree audit system was installed in 1996. It was heavily customized to present the three column, one page audit. The heavy customization did not allow for the system to be upgraded over the past two decades and the system is now obsolete and no longer supported by the vendor. The university undertook the task of updating to the industry leading degree audit system. We hope you will find the system useful and we are excited to soon begin rolling out new features and enhancements to the system. 

What is a degree audit?

A degree audit is an analytical tool that enables you and your academic advisors to assess your progress toward completion of your major requirements, college general education requirements, university requirements, and (if applicable) minor requirements.

A valuable tool for academic planning and course selection, the degree audit aligns your in-progress and completed course work with the requirements of your degree program.
