Progressing Toward a Degree
Degree Planning--ISU Degree Audit
In addition to being properly registered, students are responsible for knowing the requirements for their degree and planning their schedule to meet those requirements. One way to monitor progress toward a degree is with the ISU degree audit.
Students may access their ISU degree audit through AccessPlus. The degree audit shows courses that have been completed, courses in which the student is currently enrolled, and graduation requirements that need to be completed for the student’s curriculum.
Students should use the degree audit information to help them review progress towards their degrees(s), plan their course of study to complete degree requirements, and select courses for the next term. Graduation evaluators in the Office of the Registrar use the degree audit during the term a student will graduate to determine if the student will have completed all degree requirements upon successful completion of the courses on the student’s schedule that term.
In addition, through AccessPlus, students may request a “What If” degree audit for any major available at Iowa State. The audit results will show how their completed and in-progress courses apply toward other majors or options offered at the University.
For further information about how completed courses fulfill degree requirements or how other courses will apply toward their degree requirements, students should see their adviser.
