Degree Audit Academic Process Continues To Go Mainstream

Posted on: August 13th, 2015 by TERRIE THOMPSON

Degree Audit has become a mainstream tool that all Schools and Colleges use and is now an integral part of the undergraduate graduation process. We are happy to report that we had 100% compliance for May graduation with the exception of Pharmacy and Law, which recently came online. We expect all undergraduate degrees to be conferred using Degree Audit for August graduates.

Several enhancements have been made to the Degree Audit system over this last year, many of which are a direct result of conversations with and suggestions from our Associate Deans:

  • Added the ability for academic administrators to fulfill any outstanding requirements and finalize audits with a single click
  • Enforced the automatic exclusion of an outdated catalog, and gave academic administrators “override” capability to allow a student to use an expired catalog
  • Built an interface to display Degree Audit information in a specifically required format for Veterans’ use
  • Added an option to include the student’s academic work history in printed audit results
  • Built a few reports that allow academic administrators to:
    1. Batch print audits
    2. List students who have not fulfilled a particular sub-requirement
    3. List students who do not have an audit
    4. List students whose audits were changed within a particular time frame
  • Brought Pharmacy and Law online with Degree Audit
  • Restructured School of Business programs and some Liberal Arts and Education programs to allow for the upcoming automatic Major GPA calculation

Please continue to send us suggestions on how we can make Degree Audit even more helpful. Next up: Major GPAs!

The Office of Information Technology (IT) is continually working in partnership with the Dean’s offices to give students and faculty the information they need to ensure the students’ success. Questions or comments? Send feedback to .
