Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS)
What is DARS?
DARS is an acronym for Degree Audit Reporting System. DARS has two components, the degree audit and transfer evaluation. The degree audit is an automated process for tracking a student's academic progress toward completing an academic program. The transfer evaluation reports the courses completed at another institution and indicates their transferability.
What are the advantages of using DARS?
- DARS is an advising tool which will enable students and advisors to track progress toward meeting graduation requirements more accurately, more efficiently, and on an ongoing basis from the beginning of their studies.
- DARS reduces the manual processing required for checking degree progress. In turn, DARS will facilitate advising by allowing less time to be spent reviewing past coursework, and more time helping students plan for the future.
- After providing an immediate analysis of progress towards degree completion, DARS summarizes the courses a student should choose from to complete degree requirements. Consequently, DARS ensures that students stay on track on not take unnecessary courses .
- DARS shows how a student's official transfer coursework will apply towards their degree.
- If a student is considering changing majors, a "What-if" DARS degree audit can be produced that shows how their already completed coursework applies towards another major.
