These are the most common problems and courses of action:
Problem What to Do My major is wrong on my audit. If you have not officially changed your major, you will need to contact your academic advisor or program chair for the change to occur. If you believe you have already officially changed your major, please contact the Registrar’s Office. The requirements for my major are wrong. Look at the catalog term that appears on the major requirements block of the audit. According to our records this is the catalog (entry year for your class) that you are using to complete your major requirements. If you believe you should be using older or newer requirements, contact your academic advisor (undergraduate) or program chair (graduate). My transfer courses don’t appear in the right place. If you are concerned about a transfer course that should be applying in the audit, contact your academic advisor (undergraduate) or program chair (graduate). Classes are not applying in the “right” place. DegreeWorks uses a ‘best fit’ approach for meeting requirements so classes may apply to different sections as you take more courses. If you have further questions, contact your academic advisor (undergraduate) or program chair (graduate). My advisor or department head gave me permission to substitute a course, but it’s not showing on my audit. The substitution approval may not have been submitted or may not have yet been processed by the Registar’s Office. If you have questions, contact your academic advisor (undergraduate) or program chair (graduate). My minor is missing from my audit. If you have not officially declared your minor, you must request to have it added to your academic record so that the minor to appear on your audit. If you believe you have already add the minor, please contact the Registrar’s Office. My major requires me to complete a concentration, but it didn’t appear on the audit. The Registrar’s Office may not be aware of the concentration you are planning to complete. Please contact your academic advisor (undergraduate) or program chair (graduate) to work with the Registrar's office to add your concentration.
- I’m pursuing two degrees. Only one appears on the audit. How can I check the requirements for my other program of study?
- Look at the degree information next to your name at the top of the screen. You’ll notice that the degree box has a drop-down arrow. Use this to select your second degree. Once you select on this, an audit with the additional degree and major will display.
- I’m a double major, but only one appears on the audit.
- Look at the header block on your audit. If only one major is listed, your records do not indicate that a second major has been declared. You should contact the Registrar’s Office.
- I want to change my major. How can I see what would be required if I made this change?
- You can use the “What if” option on the Audits tab to do an audit using criteria you select. Please be sure to select a Degree, Catalog term and Major. What-if audits do not guarantee that you will be able to major in the area you select. If you decide you’d like to change your major, please contact your academic advisor (undergraduate) or program chair (graduate).
- Can my advisor see my What If scenario?
- Since What If scenarios are not stored on DegreeWorks, your advisor can only see your results if the two of you work through a What If procedure together. You can also save a pdf version or print a copy to show your advisor.
- Who should I contact if I still have questions or disagree with the audit?
- Please contact your academic advisor (undergraduate) or program chair (graduate).
- I have been cleared for graduation, but DegreeWorks says that I haven’t completed all of my requirements. Does this mean that I won’t be able to graduate?
- Not necessarily. This can be a timing issue such as posting of grades, removal of incompletes, posting of transfer credit, etc. for the current term. If you have followed through on any requirements you were told to complete, you should still be on track for graduation. Contact the Registrar’s Office as soon as possible.
- Can I save or print my audit?
- Yes. Utilizing the ‘Save as PDF’ button, you can save or print a .pdf version of your audit.
- How is my degree audit different from my transcript?
- Your degree audit is a tool to provide you with academic information related to your degree progress. It displays courses required and completed in your degree program. Your transcript is your official academic record and provides a chronological list of courses completed and other academic information.
- When I click on the course number, it brings up a page which shows the course description, prerequisites and available sections. Some courses have a statement that says
the class may be taken concurrently with [class name here].What does concurrency mean?
- Concurrency means that you are permitted to register for a course and a listed prerequisite in the same term. This allows for the most flexibility in Block scheduling, as you can register for the prerequisite course in Block 1 and the subsequent course in Block 2 of a single term. For example, Course A is a prerequisite for Course B. You are permitted to register for Course A and Course B in the same term, taking Course A during Block 1 and Course B during Block 2. If you are found to be registered out of order or taking Course A and Course B at the same time, you may be administratively dropped.
