What is a degree audit?
A degree audit is an analysis that enables the student and his/her adviser to assess the student’s academic progress and unfulfilled degree requirements. The audit is a valuable tool for academic planning and course selection, because it matches the courses that the student has taken with the requirements of his/her degree program. Audits are available for anyone who is enrolled at the Eastman School in a Bachelor of Music, Master of Music, or Master of Arts degree program. Audit data is refreshed once daily. So, if the student adds or drops a course today, the change won’t appear in the audit until the next day. The degree audit is not the student’s official academic record. The transcript is the official record of completed work. How do I get a current degree audit?
