Degree Audit

A degree audit lists all of the requirements for your degree, including (but not limited to):

  • Minimum number of hours required
  • Advanced hours required
  • Core requirements
  • Major requirements
  • Minor requirements

The degree audit will note if a requirement has or has not been fulfilled, or if it is in progress. This is a useful tool to track progress toward degree completion.
