The DARS (Degree Audit Reporting System) is an automated reporting system that reflects your academic progress toward degree completion in your declared major. By considering UMSL course work, transfer courses and courses in progress, DARS analysis provides timely information on meeting your degree requirements.
You can obtain an updated DARS report at any time through your advisor or at the Degree Audit office. You can also produce a DARS report through the Degree Audit (DARS) link on your "My Gateway" page. Directions for producing the DARS reports are found at the top of the web audit page or at the following location: http://www.umsl.edu/services/dars/report.htm.
If you are unsure about which major to choose or you're thinking about changing majors, you can produce an unofficial degree audit for any undergraduate degree program, minor or certificate offered at UMSL through the online Web Audit. This "window shopping" feature will show you exactly how coursework you've completed towards one program will apply toward another. This allows you to identify any additional courses you will need to complete and estimate how long it will take you to reach your goal. You can also add "planned" courses and "planned" grades using the web audit to see the impact it would have on your GPA.
