Degree Audits and Degree Pathways

Degree audits list the courses required to complete a degree. Use these audits when planning your college registration, as well as insuring that you're able to complete a degree.

To run a degree or certificate audit:

  • Log into myChargerNet.
  • Click the Student link in the green shaded area on the left hand side of the screen.
  • Click on the Degree Audit icon on the right hand side of the screen under the Student Services menu.
  • Select a term, which means a catalog year.

At the Degree Evaluation Record screen, if the curriculum information regarding your major is correct, click on "Generate New Evaluation".
  • Select a program, which means the degree or certificate.
  • Click “Generate Request”. 
At the Degree Evaluation Record screen, if the curriculum information regarding your major and/or concentration is NOT correct OR you would like to run an audit based on a different major or catalog year, follow these steps.
  • Click on "What If Analysis".
  • Select a term, which means a catalog year and click Continue.
  • Select a program, which means a degree or certificate and click Continue.
  • Select the major; click in “First Major” box to select the degree chosen (leave the “Campus” box on NONE).
  • Click "Add More" to select a concentration or emphasis if applicable.
  • Click in the Concentration 1” box to choose a concentration and click Submit.
  • Click "Generate Request."

Interpreting the audit:

  • The information under the top heading “Program Description” lists the Program, Degree, Major, Catalog, and Concentration (if applicable) for which the audit was run. You must select a term (catalog) for which you are or have been enrolled.
  • Under the heading “Program Evaluation” you will see a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ under the “Met” column describing the required hours and GPA. Bear in mind that even though the Total Required hours, Required Institutional hours, and Overall GPA requirement may reflect a ‘Yes’, this information may change if classes are dropped and/or failed.
  • Review each “Area Requirements”. Those that lack completion will have a note of ‘No’ under the “Met” column. Areas which are listed as ‘Yes’ include current enrollment and may change if classes are dropped and/or failed. If it is BLANK under the “Met” column then you need to look for the “Yes” or “No” under the “Detail Requirements”.
  • You may see a ‘No’ next to an OR scenario (such as Natural Science). If the area requirement says ‘YES’ then you are okay. It will remain No next to the one you did not complete and YES next to the one you did complete.
  • The system should use all equivalent transfer and quarter hour courses; as well as, courses whose rubrics and course IDs have changed over time.
