Important CHANGE
(updated 12/18/2020): We had originally intended for students admitted this 2020-21 catalog year to not submit the degree audit form, however, we are still making adjustments to processes and degree requirements in Degree Works. Please bear with us as we transition to this new system. So for now, we ask that graduate students admitted fall 2020 or after, continue to submit the Degree Audit forms (and Admission to Candidacy forms) to the Registrar’s Office ( for processing. The submission of these forms will allow us to identify students intending to apply to graduate and to apply exceptions in Degree Works for students double counting, transferring and/or substituting courses. Please email Roxane Aungst ( if you have questions.
