DARS (Degree Audit Reporting System)

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.
