How do I run a degree audit for the correct catalog year?

Keep the default selection of “Latest” to run your degree audit with the correct catalog year. Don’t select a major from the drop-down list.

If you select a major from the drop-down list then this will run what is called a “What-if Audit”.  The what-if audits are for students who are considering changing majors and always run with the newest catalog year.

How do I get to my online degree audit?

Go to Banweb to get to your online degree audit. Be sure to run the default audit titled “Latest” because this will run the audit with your correct catalog year. Degree Services has more detailed information on how to run the audit on their webpage. New students will be able to run audits 30 days before the semester starts.

Run your online degree audit every time you change your schedule to check your progress towards graduation.  Unfortunately, the online audit is not perfect. This is why it’s important for you to know where your classes should be counting and which requirements should be complete.  If you have questions then contact your academic advisor to investigate.  

I have completed UN 1015 Composition and UN 1025 Global Issues. Which general education class should I take next?

Once you have completed both UN 1015 Composition and UN 1025 Global Issues (or a 3000-level modern language course) then you can take the remaining general education core and HASS courses in any order.

Before choosing your next general education class, review the general education requirements and figure out where classes you’ve already taken are counting. General education requirements are described on the department’s degree requirements page and the Registrar’s Office general education page. Then run your online degree audit on Banweb to see if your classes are being used where expected. If a class isn’t going where expected then contact your academic advisor to figure out why. For new students, online degree audits are available 30 days before the start of the semester.

I am planning to graduate next semester. What do I need to do?

Congratulations!!  All of your hard work is about to pay off.

The semester before your final semester you need to do the following three things:

  1. Review your online degree audit on Banweb.  It is important to realize that while the online degree audit is very convenient to use, you should not just blindly trust everything that it does.  That is because it does not always place your classes in the best spot on your audit.  If you find any problems or have questions about your online degree audit then schedule an appointment with the ChE academic advisor.
  2. Apply for graduation.  This application is online on the Registrar’s Office webpage.  Under Students, click on Graduation.  The link to the Application for Graduation is on this page.
  3. Once you have registered for classes for your final semester complete a final review of your online degree audit.  At this point all of the areas on your audit should be green, meaning complete, with RGIP (registered in-progress) classes.  The only areas that should be red are the last two sections on your audit:  Repeated Courses: and Courses not used to complete degree requirements:, which are always red.  If you find any problems with your audit then schedule an appointment with the ChE academic advisor.
