What the Degree Audit Does

The Degree Audit Report (DARS), also called Minnesota State Student Planner, is used in the following ways to help students, staff, and faculty:

Track progress toward graduation!

Degree Audit: the tool that provides a personalized listing of requirements and courses, marking them as already complete, planned, or still needed.

Stay on path to intended graduation time!

Graduation Planner: a dynamic academic planning toll that uses the most up-to-date information available from the student record system and DARs, including transfer and in-progress courses. 

Create an optimized schedule!

Schedule Builder: uses courses pushed from a "Preferred Plan" in the Graduation Planner or manually added to create multiple schedule options in order to select the best schedule choice for individual students.

How to Guides are available through the Minnesota State Student Planner site.

The Power of the Degree Audit

The DARS platform illustrates progress toward degree for students. Such reports show all of the requirements needed to receive a degree from SCSU and which courses may be used to satisfy those specific degree and major requirements.

DARS are accessible to all students enrolled in a St. Cloud State degree program via e-Services. The degree audit link is located under Academic Records in the left navigation. 

You Can Play "What If?"

The "What-if" audit illustrates how your undergraduate course of study may change if you were to declare an additional major, change major, or add a minor. The "What-if" degree audit will apply your completed course work and how your requirements for graduation will change. This feature is only available to those in undergraduate degree programs at this time.

To obtain a “What-if” degree audit

  1. Login to e-Services.
  2. Choose "Degree Audit" under Academic Records.
  3. After entering your StarID and password, choose "Select a Different Program."
