Your Degree Works Audit is not your academic transcript nor is it an official notification of completion of degree requirements. The Audit can be viewed as a tool to provide you with academic information related to your degree progress intended to help plan your degree path and future academic schedules.
Neither your Degree Works Audit nor your Unofficial Transcript is your official academic transcript and should not accompany job, transfer or graduate school applications. Official academic transcripts can be ordered online through the National Student Clearinghouse.
The information on your Degree Works Audit is automatically refreshed each night. Any changes made today (e.g., grade changes or classes added/dropped) will be seen on your audit tomorrow.
Your degree audit is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from most networked computers. It is recommended you review your Degree Works Audit information:

Degree Works recognizes that some courses can fulfill more than one requirement. If you have a question about a specific course satisfying more than one requirement, contact your Academic Advisor.

Using a single course to fulfill multiple requirements may require completion of additional electives to reach your minimum graduation credit total.

The Insufficient block is a list of courses from which the student has either withdrawn prior to earning a grade, or for which the grade earned is insufficient to meet a minimum grade requirement.
The In-Progress block is a list of courses for which the student is currently registered, but has yet to receive grades. These could be courses in a past, present or future semester.
Please be aware that developmental courses (courses leading with a 0 number) will NOT count toward graduation. Developmental courses are coded as "100" or below in the course number. Please check DegreeWorks to ensure there are enough "total credits applied" to graduate.
Your Degree Works Audit provides information on your progress toward completion of degree program requirements and allows you to plan for the registration process. Courses listed under incomplete requirements are linked to catalog descriptions that include prerequisite requirements, GeneralEducation attributes and, when possible, available future course meeting times.
However, you cannot use the Degree Works Audit to officially register for classes. Registration will need to be completed by selecting theRegister link on the Student Quick Access Card.

While we have tried to make sure that your Degree Works Audit is correct, it is difficult to predict every unique situation or problem. We want to work with you to correct any issues as soon as possible. The first step is to clarify what information you believe is wrong.
If you think that a requirement for a major, minor or concentration is incorrect, you should meet with your academic advisor or consult the official degree program requirements for your program of study and effective catalog term. If you still believe there is an error on your Degree Works Audit please contact us here.
Please note, students who have graduated may not see an audit once the graduation notation has been posted to their transcript. Students considering readmission will not be able to see a degree audit until they officially readmit to the University.
