uAchieve

Description uAachieve is a degree auditing tool that helps students and advisors evaluate academic progress towards degree completion. The degree audit system is meant to be used as an unofficial guide, as several factors may impact an online audit, such as

  • The display of transfer course information within the audit
  • Program requirements varying depending on the date of matriculation, or major declaration
  • The integration of course exceptions into the audit
