FAQ for Advisors

How do I run an audit showing the pseudo names?

When running an audit, change the list option 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 lower grade than the system set up to accept. An exception can be made if the lower grade is only accepted for one student. If the audit is processing incorrectly for all students on this requirement, contact the Office of the Registrar.

What should I use to report issues with MyDegreePath questions or changes?

 Academic Records Review (Request to Registrar) should be used for course additions to a requirement. It should also be used if you think a question regarding a student's audit is a mistake. You can find this under the My Advising Tools on
