Advising Handbook

Degree Audit

The Registrar provides degree audits to students at several points in their career.

Juniors can see their online degree audits at DARS and review credit hours earned, primary writing, grade point average, and notation of major(s) declared. During the summer prior to the junior year the Registrar’s office will review students repeat courses and duplicate credits and correct any errors.

Rising seniors review their first official degree audit when they return in the fall of their senior year at DARS. Declaration of the Rochester Curriculum, cluster report, majors and minors are included in the online system.

The second phase of the degree audit (review by departments and programs for completion of majors and minors) occurs soon after the drop/add deadline in the fall. Rochester Curriculum and cluster requirements are thoroughly screened, and all of the items mentioned in the first review are repeated. Students receive the second review information prior to registration in November.

Additional reviews are completed when fall grades and spring grades are available. Final clearance of degrees is completed the week prior to Graduation. Correspondence concerning students' degree audit is sent to the student's official UR email address by the registrar’s staff.
