Using the Online Degree Audit Tools
The audit is an online reporting tool used to track your progress toward degree completion. DARS (also called “degree audit”) incorporates all coursework (UC and transfer) and applies it to university, college, and program requirements. The audit will update automatically throughout your academic career, as you register for and complete additional courses.
What the Audit Does
- Identifies all requirements needed to complete a degree program
- Displays the courses you have already completed, the grades received, and how each pertains to your degree requirements
- Specifies the courses and requirements that have not yet been satisfied
- Provides courses you may register for to complete the remaining requirements
