Degree Audits

We love DW! 

DW is short for Degree Works.  Students who have started using Degree Works love it and we think you will too.  Degree Works is our new, modern degree audit tool now available for all students.  Degree audits are designed to assist you with planning and tracking your progress toward graduation by comparing your academic record against the requirements for your degree. Your completed FIT courses, transfer credit, and in-progress courses are included in your degree audit. 

Degree audits can be accessed in MyFIT.

Understanding Degree Works Audits

  • The audit is divided into blocks for each type of requirement. Each block consists of a checklist with boxes that are checked when a requirement is met.

  • At the end of the degree audit there is a legend which shows the meaning of the icons used in Degree Works.
    •   Completed requirements are indicated by a green check mark. 
    • A blue half-circle indicates a requirement is in progress. 
    • An open red circle indicates a requirement has not been met.

  • The Excess Courses Not Applied to this Degree block lists elective courses that do not apply to your major requirements.

  • The Insufficient Grades block lists courses that do not apply to degree requirements because the courses do not have passing grades.

  • If you hover over any course number with your mouse, the name and credit hours for the course will display. 

  • The @ symbol is a wild card in Degree Works. It allows you many choices in a given subject area. For example, if the @ sign appears after a subject prefix i.e., [email protected], it means that you can take any History of Art course for the requirement.

  • Degree Works is updated nightly.  Any changes made (e.g., grade changes or classes added/dropped) will be seen in Degree Works within 24hrs.

Degree Audit Help

If you are a student in a graduate program, contact your major department about your degree audit.

Although every effort is made to ensure the information on the degree audit is correct, it is your responsibility to review the audit and confirm its accuracy, successfully complete in-progress courses, and register for the proper sequence of courses to satisfy degree requirements.
