How do I...?
Are you confused about your audit? Watch the videos, try it yourself in the interactive PowerPoints, or read the instructions to learn more about the degree audit. You will learn how to run a declared audit for your major or a what-if audit for any major, read and understand the information on your audit, and request an evaluation of your transfer coursework.
A declared audit will only work for you if you have a declared program. The declared audit will show you your progress towards graduation with your declared program. You can still check your progress towards graduation if you do not have a declared program by running a what-if audit and scheduling an appointment with an advisor inAcademic Advising Center.
A what-if audit allows you to explore different majors and see an audit for the program of your choice. The audit will show you what you have already completed and what you would still need to complete towards graduation with the program you choose to run the audit for.
Once your selections are clear you will use the drop down menus to select the program you want to run an audit for. You will select what college your program is in, the major you are interested in, and the degree type (ex. for a bachelor of science you would select BS, or for a bachelor of arts you would select BA). If your major has an emphasis, you will select that for the program (if the program you choose does not have an emphasis it will automatically fill this section for you), and because you are running a what-if audit, you are not already declared in this program, so for catalog year you will choose the most recent catalog year.
If you are interested in attending a professional program after you graduate, you can run an audit to check your progress towards completing your prerequisite courses.
A degree audit will show you everything you need in order to graduate. It will show you what you have completed, what you are currently enrolled in, and what you still need to complete for graduation. Having said that, an audit is only useful if you know how to interpret the information it is giving you. Your degree audit may look a little intimidating at first, but it is much easier to read than you might think!
- Before you will see your transfer courses on your Degree Audit, you must have your official transcripts from your college or university sent to the Admissions Office at the University of Utah. Once the Admissions Office receives them, they will work to place the courses on your audit. Depending on the time of year, this can take days to several weeks.
- AP credit must be sent to the University of Utah Admissions Office directly from College Board. AP Credit WILL NOT show up on high school, college, or university transcripts.
- The University of Utah "articulates" courses from in-state institutions. If your transfer coursework is from a college or university in Utah, you can use Transferology to see how your courses will transfer to the U of U.
- If your course is from an institution outside of Utah, you will need to speak with an advisor to learn how your course might transfer. For General Education credit, you should contact an advisor in the Academic Advising Center. For credit in your major, contact an advisor in the department of your major.
Did you receive an error while trying to run an audit? If so, please take a screenshot of the error page and send it to us (firstname.lastname@example.org). Make sure you include what you were trying to do at the time you received the error (run a declared audit, a what-if audit, or an audit with planned courses). We want to get that error taken care of as quickly as we can, but first, we need to know what the error is.
My Degree Dashboard has some wonderful tools for you to use, but they can be a tad bit overwhelming if you're not sure how to use them. For more assistance, schedule an appointment with your major advisor so they can run through the basics with you. If you don't have a major yet, you can meet with an advisor in the Academic Advising Center.
While My Degree Dashboard does have its limitations, we are always looking for new ways to support our students and staff in their academic endeavors. If you have a suggestion for how we could leverage technology to better support the campus community, we would love to hear from you! Send us an email with your suggestion at email@example.com.
