Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS).
DARS was developed to assist in the advising function. A degree audit outlines a studentís specific degree requirements and tracks their progress toward the fulfillment of those requirements. Both USI and transfer credits are included, and the audit indicates whether categories are satisfied or unsatisfied. Unsatisfied categories list the acceptable courses from which to select. Audits are routinely refreshed to reflect record changes (drop/adds, change of major, priority-registration, etc.). Students can view their audit any time of the year via MyUSI (www.usieagles.org). Academic advisors can also access their adviseeís degree audit and can recommend the most appropriate courses.
"What-If" audits can be run by students (or their advisors) when considering a change in academic program. This is a useful tool to determine how completed courses will be applied to a new major.
To access an advisee's Degree Audit, log on to MyUSI at www.usieagles.org ; select Academic Services, Administrative Services, Faculty, Student Information Menu, Degree Evaluation, Submit an Audit. You will need the student's identification number to run an audit; there is no search engine available for the Degree Audit Reporting System. You can run an audit for the student's current degree program or use the What-If Analysis to see how courses would apply if the student changed majors.
