How to Use Degree Audit

A Student's Complete Guide to Degree Audit and Commonly Asked Questions

Degree Auditing is a way to compare the courses you have completed with your Major and Minor requirements. If you have declared your major, here are some tips on using Degree Audit. If you are undeclared, read the next section, “For Students Without Declared Majors.”

Accessing Degree Audit:

  1. Log into your SIS account.
  2. Under the Registration tab, select Degree Audit.

Moving Courses:

  1. At the top left side, select the link “Move Courses”
  2. In order to move a course, there must be a drop down option in order for you to move any courses.
  3. Once you’ve selected the course you want to move, click “Move Course Here” then scroll back up and click “Stop Moving Courses.”

Try Alternate Paths:

If you decide to change your path, another window will pop up and show you your alternate path options. Once done, click “Submit.” Your audit will then adjust to your new path. If you want to change it back, just reselect your original path.

Checking the Requirement Fulfillments of a Course:

What if I’m not sure if the course listed that fulfills a certain requirement? Simply select the “Show Course Title” option. Your course name and number will then show up for the selected area.


For Students Without Declared Majors

Since you are not yet declared, you cannot automatically run a Degree Audit. The following steps describe how to create an audit as an undeclared major using “Add Goals.”

Setting Up Degree Audit:

  1. To create a new degree audit for a major/minor of interest, select the “Add Goal” button.
  2. Select “Arts & Sciences/Engineering Undergraduates”
  3. Select the year in which you entered the university, i.e., if you are a Freshman, you would pick the 2016-2017 Catalog because you enrolled the fall of 2016.
  4. Click: “University Degree Requirements”.
  5. Keep clicking in the tree until you can select the major or minor you want to try.
  6. Once you’re done, scroll up. Feel free to name your new audit list, then click “Save Academic Goal.”
  7. To view your new audit, highlight it and select “Create Audit.”

Good luck, and happy auditing!
