What is a Degree Audit Report?
A Degree Audit report (DAR) is a printed record of a personalized degree plan and an analysis of academic progress for each student based on the catalog requirements for a degree. The report is generated from the SIS/ON COURSE SYSTEM derived from data input into this system, either automatically or manually. The system evaluates and tracks all coursework that has been completed or is "In Progress" at Pepperdine and courses taken at other schools that have been processed as transfer credits.
How to Read Your Degree Audit Report
Waivers and Substitutions
Waivers of course requirements require a written approval by the division chairs. Complete a "transfer and substitution of units" form in the division office. Attach a copy of the course description and all related syllabus(es) of the course(s). Waiver adjustments are manually processed by the Registrar's Office for these to show in the Degree Audit Report.
Course substitutions for stated catalog requirements must likewise be approved in writing by the division chairs. These are also manually input by the Registrar's Office for these to show in the DAR.
Consult your academic advisor regularly for academic advising. If you have any questions regarding your DAR, please consult one of the academic progress analysts in the Office of the University Registrar.
