How an Audit Works

An Audit compares all of the courses on your official academic record to computer coded requirements from the university catalogs. The result is an estimate of your status in meeting these requirements.

Updating an Audit

Check the date your last audit was run. If changes to your record, such as the addition of transferred courses, a new semester's registration, or exceptions approved by your dean, have occurred since your last audit was run, you need to create a new audit for those changes to be included. To do this, create a new Audit using MyDegreePath.

Viewing an Audit

You may view your audits that you have requested within the last two days. To view previously ran audits, select Manage from the Audits tab on MyDegreePath and a list of audits will be displayed. Each audit shows your progress toward meeting program requirements at the time that audit was created.

These requirements must be completed by all undergraduate students who attend UC Merced. Following the UC Merced requirements are your School specific requirements.
