The Key to DARS

The Degree Audit is a report of your academic progress at the University of Washington. It lists all your current and completed UW courses and transferred courses and shows how they apply toward a particular degree program. The following sample is designed to demonstrate features you might find on your own audit. Various elements are linked to explanations at the bottom of the page.
