Completing the Degree Audit Process is required of all graduating seniors and must be followed one quarter prior to completing degree requirements neglecting to do so may delay a student’s graduation term. Once completing the Degree Audit Process students will receive an Official Degree Audit via email with any remaining requirements to complete in the final term. Official Degree Audits are typically delivered before the start of the final term. Students are ultimately responsible for reviewing the Official Degree Audit and DARS Report for accuracy and confirming that degree requirements are met.
