How to get your Panther Degree Audit

Click link for information on how to get your Panther Degree Audit.

What is a Panther Degree Audit?

Your Panther Degree Audit is your degree audit that will tell you what you have already done and what you have left to do in order to complete your Major. It keeps track of all of your requirements: University, College and Major.

  • Every time you complete a course that fulfills one of those requirements it checks it off and says EN
  • If you have satisfied a section or requirement it says SATISFIED, meaning you have met this requirement.
  • If you still have a requirement left over it says NOT SATISFIED, meaning you have not met this requirement.
  • If you are registered for a course that will fulfill the requirement, provided you pass it with the appropriate grade, the PDA says IP meaning In Progress.

Your goal (think of it like a video game) is to make all the “NOT SATISFIED”s turn into “SATISFIED”s. When that happens, and there are no more “NOT SATISFIED”s left on your PDA you get a message across the top which reads:

*****ALL REQUIREMENTS IDENTIFIED BELOW HAVE BEEN MET*****

PENDING COMPLETION OF CURRENT REGISTRATION IP COURSES

When you get that message that is a very good sign, though not a 100% guarantee, that you are ready to graduate at the end of the term.
