Students can request and review their Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS) report in the Course Search & Enroll app or Student Center via My UW.
DARS is used to audit the progress of most undergraduate degree programs and certificates. DARS is a tool used to help advise enrollment and degree requirements. A DARS report shows all the requirements for completing a degree and, against courses that are planned or completed, indicates which requirements have been met and which are still needed.
Students can also request DARS for programs, majors, or certificates that they have not declared. These reports are called ‘What if’ reports. A what-if report is an excellent way to determine how a student’s course work would complete requirements of another program.
DARS reports can be requested for a single major or certificate. Students cannot combine multiple majors and/or certificates into one DARS report.
Not all undergraduate degree programs, majors, certificates are available in DARS.
