An essential tool:
The Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS) Report
What is a DARS Report?
The DARS report details a student’s academic progress. It identifies courses taken, course requirements met, course requirements remaining, GPA, and grades. The DARS report is CONFIDENTIAL. It must not be shared with a third party.
Where do I get my DARS report?
A student can obtain their DARs report at http://www.oar.uiuc.edu/current/dars/generate.html
When you create a DARS report, always use "expand all" to see all the information.
