The Degree Progress Audit, provides students, staff, and faculty a tool for degree requirement enforcement. The Course and Graduation Planner tool allows a student to interactively plan their coursework in a semester by semester basis.

Degree Progress Audit

The degree progress audit provides each student an individualized audit reflecting their progression through their degree program and, at CSU, serves as the graduation contract for all undergraduate students. A Degree Progress audit, verifies the completion of University core curriculum, program, minor, and interdisciplinary study requirements. The audit provides a dynamic report showing all courses required for a student to graduate with their declared majors, minors and interdisciplinary study programs to enhance student degree and program planning.  Additionally, the audit includes how all transfer and CSU courses count towards a student’s degree.


Students can access their Degree Progress Audit for all declared majors and minors through RAMweb.

To do so:

  • Log into RAMweb.
  • Click on the “Degree Progress Audit (DARS)” link under the Tools for Student Success section.
  • Sign in to the system with your eid and password

When the screen comes up you will immediately see the last audit run on your record

You need to re-run your audit in order to have the most accurate audit. Click on the Request Audit Button on the Top Right. Choose your audit type:

  • Run for Current Program
  • Run a “What-if” Audit
  • Click on the Run Audit button at the bottom
  • A new page will pull up and when the current audit is ready it will show in the list
  • Click on the Audit – Open All Sections

Requirement sections listed in green with a check mark have been completed, and those listed in red with an “X” have not been completed. Sections not completed will list all courses/requirements which will need to be completed to fulfill the section.

Courses you are registered for (in progress /IP courses) will show on the audit in the sections they will fulfill once completed.

Course and Graduation Planner

The Course and Graduation Planner tool allows a student to plan for the immediate term or the entirety of their coursework to degree completion. The drag and drop functionality of the system allows a student to establish a plan unique to their preferences. Students are able to view the course catalog information as well as add and delete semesters to create the plan that best works for their situation. A student can work with their advisor to request plan approval to confirm the student is planning courses in a way that will in-fact keep them on track to graduation. Students can create as many plans as they would like, however, one plan will serve as a “preferred” plan that will be used by the advisor and university in course planning.

The Course and Graduation Planner will be made available to students in December 2014, the tool will have a handful of programs built in the system. As Major Completion Maps are built and approved through university processes more will be added to the system. For the status on your department’s major completion maps please contact your specific department.
