Degree Requirements/Audit (DARS)

Where do you stand?

You have to know where you stand before you can choose courses, but degree requirements can be confusing. Rather than figure this out on your own, there's a simple tool you can use to determine exactly where you stand: a degree audit.

The Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS), available through Dal Online, gives you a personalized and current snapshot of where you stand in meeting your degree's requirements.

Your Degree Audit lists your complete and/or incomplete requirements and the courses needed to fulfill each requirement.

Check that courses you are considering taking will meet your requirements using the course cart feature.

To begin a degree audit:

  1. Login to Dal Online.
  2. Under Web for Students, click on Degree Audit Reporting System and follow the links. (You can also find step-by-step instructions in Dal Online Help.)
  3. If you want help interpreting your degree audit report, contact an Academic Advisor—they can help you.
  4. Once you know your degree status, you're ready to choose your classes.
