The degree audit provides you with a report of your progress toward completion of the requirements for a specific program, including:
- Minimum number of hours required
- Multicultural and Writing Intensive requirements
- Upper Level Hour requirements
- Residency requirements
- Core requirements
- Major requirements
- Minor requirements
- Certificate requirements
The degree audit will note if a requirement has or has not been fulfilled. This is a useful tool to track degree progress and plan for future terms.
In addition to using the degree audit, students are encouraged to regularly meet with their academic advisors. The degree audit is not a substitute for advising.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I run a what-if degree audit?
If you are looking to change your major or minor, you can run a “what-if” degree audit. See Step 4 of the degree audit instructions to run a “what-if” audit.
What if no program is assigned to me?
If you do not have a program readily available on the degree audit, you will need to contact your academic advisor and have the program officially assigned. In the meantime, you can run a “what-if” degree audit to see the requirements of the degree you wish to pursue.
My major/minor in the degree audit is wrong. How do I change it?
If you do not see the correct programs listed in your degree audit, please contact your academic advisor to correct this.
The requirements for my major have changed and the degree audit is showing the old requirements?
Students follow programs based on the term they were admitted to Wright State University. If you would like to update your catalog to the new requirements, you may contact your advisor and ask to be updated.
Who can I contact if I have questions?
If you have any questions about your degree audit or feel that something is incorrect on the degree audit, please contact your academic advisor.
