DARS (Degree Audit Reporting System) is used to audit the progress of most undergraduate degree programs, undergraduate majors, undergraduate certificates, and capstone certificates. Graduate programs do not use DARS. 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.
For help reading and interpreting a DARS report as it pertains to a specific undergraduate degree, undergraduate major, undergraduate certificate or capstone certificate, please contact your academic advisor. Graduate programs do not use DARS. For more information regarding all graduate programs, view the Graduate Guide. Some graduate programs have GSTS (Graduate Student Tracking System) reports. Students can get additional information about GSTS.
