Degree Audit

A degree audit is a report that lists the graduation requirements for your degree or certificate program. It lists the courses that may be taken to complete each requirement. Your completed courses, including those accepted in transfer or earned through demonstrated competency will be displayed under the requirement is satisfies.

Degree audits do not display admission requirements and prerequisite coursework (courses numbered below 1000) since they are not required to graduate.

Run a Degree Audit

You can run a degree audit based on your academic program or any of the degree and certificate programs offered at College of DuPage. Degree audits are available in your myACCESS account, under the Academic Profile section available through the student portal at inside.cod.edu.

It’s important to monitor your progress towards graduation and to ensure that the courses you choose to take will satisfy requirements. Courses that don’t count towards graduation add extra time and money to your education.

Student Success Counselors are available to assist you in planning coursework, career and transfer options. Schedule time to see a counselor by calling (630) 942-2259.

If your Academic Program is not reflective of your current goal, you can request a change by completing the Academic Program Change Form. No approval is required, but note that changing your academic program may impact your financial aid or veterans benefits.

Student Planning

Located within myACCESS is Student Planning. Student Planning is a tool that combines a degree audit with an educational plan. Student Planning allows you to create a plan and track your progress toward a degree. You can load your educational plan into a semester schedule which suggests the order you take classes, register for classes or send an email to your Student Success Counselor. Student Planning is designed to help keep you on track with taking the right classes.
