FAQ for Advisors

How do I run an audit showing the pseudo names?

When running an audit, change the list option that is located below the student ID# to M-Display Pseudo Names.

I entered the exception, but the requirement did not change. What did I do wrong?

The pseudo name may be wrong or the exception may have been entered with the wrong exception control code.

The student has taken the class but the requirement is not accepting it.

The student could have received a grade that is lower than the system is set up to accept. If the lower grade is being accepted for one student only, an exception can be made. If the audit is processing incorrectly for all students on this requirement, contact the Office of the Registrar.

When should I use JIRA for a MyDegreePath question or change? should be used for a course additions to a requirement.  It should also be used if you think a question regarding a student's audit is a mistake.
