My Personal degree Audit Web System is an interactive
review of a student's academic progress toward degree completion
in his/her declared major. Each degree Audit is a specific degree
program containing the requirements and sub-sections within those
requirements necessary to complete the program.
What is a requirement?
At the top of the audit is a summary of all
degree requirements. One can easily skip to look at a requirement
by clicking on the red-boxed arrow to the left of the requirement
title. Once at the requirement level, there can be just a few courses
that need to be taken or several sub-sections within it that all
need to be completed. If a student is able to choose a specific
concentration or interest, requirements or sub-sections are "OR'd"
which allows them to take only one of those "or'd" groups.
is my Catalog Year?
This defaults to the catalog of the academic
year in which you entered. The date uses the second half of the
academic year (e.g. 2004 from the 2003-2004 academic year).
doesn't my course appear where it should?
Your advisor can help determine why it falls
where it does and move it if appropriate.
is my transfer information?
Currently, transfer courses accepted into
the university are broken up by course and the credit applying toward
your degree. The course will appear with 0.00 credits and a transfer
grade (T) either as a Northeastern equivalent course number or as
a generic Northeastern number. Equivalent courses should fall into
requirements just as a regular Northeastern course would. The credit
from each time you transferred in course work will appear under
the Additional Course Information section, note that any credit
transferred during quarters are converted to semester hours.
is my grade still IP, I, RG?
Grades are updated from the mainframe overnight,
so the audit won't reflect any immediate grade changes. If it is
a course for which you expect a grade to be in, check with the registrar's
office or your professor.
is a Z grade?
For the few weeks in between the time that
grade sheets are printed, sent to professors, and then sent back
to the registrar's office for processing, a placeholder is put into
the grade slot. It is not recognized as a true grade and thus produces
a "Z". If you are seeing a Z for a course from past terms,
it usually means that the placeholder is still there and a grade
hasn't been submitted. Check with the registrar's office or your
aren't my What-If courses appearing?
sure that you remember to click the Include What-If Courses box
below Catalog Year on the Audit Request page.
possibility is that the What-If Course that you created didn't
save correctly. All fields except the Memo need to be filled out.
Make sure that you are putting valid grades in the grade field
and a numeric credit under 12.0 in the credit field.
it's still not showing up where you expect it, do a FIND (under
the EDIT menu on your browser). It may be showing up somewhere
else.I know I got a grade in that course.
if my degree program is defaulting to the wrong major?
Consult your college's dean's office.
