The Dean's office and your academic adviser use a special form, the "tracking sheet," to keep a record of each student's completion of the require­ments for graduation.  The tracking sheet kept by the Undergraduate Office reflects official decisions as to whether completed courses fulfill the various distribution requirements, major requirements, and free electives.

You may obtain an unofficial copy of your tracking sheet at any time by logging into the Cardinal Station website.  Select "A&S Degree Progress," and follow instructions onscreen. You are encouraged to do this frequently, and to review it regularly with your adviser. This is an essential part of managing your education. 

You can also use the "A&S Degree Progress" system to see how a change of program would affect your academic progress. Simply select a different major program online.  This “what if” option makes no permanent changes in your record, and is useful in considering alternative choices.


An “audit” is a full review of your academic record.

Junior audit. The School of Arts and Sciences does an official audit with each student during the junior year. Part of this process is a conference where the student sits down with a counselor in the Undergraduate Office to review academic progress and note what requirements remain for the degree.  Making an appointment for this junior audit is crucial, since this is the time when problems can be detected and solutions worked out.  A student who fails to take the junior audit seriously is risking the later appearance of a problem that may threaten graduating on time.
