What is MyAudit?

 

MyAudit is a degree audit reporting system that analyzes your degree requirements for your major according to the catalog year in which you entered UC Merced. Your MyAudit report displays the courses from which you may select in order to complete degree requirements and shows how the courses you have already completed apply towards those requirements. Your MyAudit report provides a snapshot of where you stand relative to graduation. Knowing how your MyAudit report is structured will make the report easier to understand.

When should I view MyAudit?

You can view your MyAudit at any time, but there will be certain important times during a semester that viewing an updated audit will be essential. You can request a new, updated audit any time through my.ucmerced.edu by selecting "Submit an audit." You will want to view an updated MyAudit prior to and after registering for classes each semester. It will also be important to view an updated MyAudit after you have filed your Declaration of Candidacy and registered for your final semester of courses.

Should I still consult with my advisor?

YES! While your MyAudit tells you which requirements to complete, your advisor can give you academic counseling to help you make informed choices as well as offer you career advice that will help you after graduation.

Can MyAudit help me if I am thinking of switching majors?

If you are thinking about changing your major or concentration, you may request a "What if" audit anytime through my.ucmerced.edu. This audit will help you determine how courses already completed will apply to your new major as well as what additional courses are needed to complete the program. It is also recommended that you meet with your academic advisor. More information about how to change your major/minor can be found here.

Some of my transfer credits are not showing on MyAudit. What should I do?

First, make sure that your transcript has been sent from your previous school. To request transcripts be sent to UC Merced, you contact the school you attended and follow their procedures to request official transcripts. Once your official transcripts have been received, your transcripts will be evaluated by the Office of Admissions. Once the Office of the Registrar receives your evaluated transfer work, it will be viewable within one week.

If your transfer course is not meeting a requirement on your MyAudit and you think this is a mistake, submit a Transfer Adjustment Form to your school.

 

What if there is something wrong with MyAudit?

If you feel that MyAudit is not correctly analyzing certain requirements, you should consult an advisor from your program.

What are MyAudit limitations?

Although MyAudit provides a comprehensive description of program requirements, it is unofficial. It is intended to supplement the role of the School advisor, who will help you with course selection and assist you in making informed decisions. If you find that your courses are not meeting requirements as expected, consult with your advisor. If you notice a difference between your MyAudit and your unofficial transcript, please report this discrepancy to the Office of the Registrar at registrar@ucmerced.edu.
