What is a Degree Audit?
A degree audit is a tool utilized to see if a requirement has or has not been fulfilled, or if it is in progress. The purpose of doing degree audits is to provide information to assist you in academic planning and appropriate course selection. This is a useful tool to track your progress towards degree completion, and graduation. We highly recommend doing a self-audit on an annual or bi-annual basis, especially at the end of each academic year in April when you are selecting courses for the next year. To verify if you are on the right track, download and fill out the degree audit sheet for your program. If you still have questions once you have completed the form, you can email your program advisor for an appointment.
Important Note: All degree audits are unofficial tools to help guide you in meeting your program requirements, this is not a formal degree evaluation nor a degree confirmation. The official program requirements can always be found in the eCalendar, thus you must always verify in the eCalendar (and not websites, nor degree audit sheets).
