  • Each time you view your degree audit, click the “Process New” button. This will cause Degree Works to refresh the content and reflect any information that has changed since the last view (i.e., change of program, registration, grades).
  • Your audit displays degree or certificate requirements for your program. Courses marked with a check mark are complete. Courses marked with a tilde (~) are currently in progress, or you are registered for them in a future term. An unchecked box indicates the requirement is not yet fulfilled.
  • Questions about requirements can be directed to your academic advisor or the Registrar’s Office at
  • Degree audits are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Students should review their degree audits when they initially register for courses in a semester and when they drop or add courses. Routine review of the audit helps to ensure the student progresses in meeting degree/certificate requirements as planned and reduces unforeseen surprises later.
  • Your audit is the tool used by your academic program and the Registrar’s Office to certify proper completion of degree and/or certificate requirements. If a requirement is left unfulfilled, a student may not be eligible to graduate. In addition, the degree audit provides students with a concise tool to track requirements and their completion.

The "What If" audit is a helpful tool for students who are considering a change of major or addition of a certificate or minor.
