Students’ academic progress toward meeting graduation requirements is recorded in the Degree Works audit system. The Degree Works audit system should be used in close coordination with the process of academic advisement, including course planning, preparation for the capstone experience, and graduation in relation to the degree, graduate certificate, or certificate of advanced study sought. Students and faculty advisers should work to assure that the audit is accurate and up-to-date.
Students should periodically review Degree Works to ensure accuracy and follow-up with their adviser if there is a discrepancy. Some departments may utilize advising PINS which prohibit registration without adviser approval. In these cases, students must see their adviser for advisement prior to registration. For information about advising PINS visit http://bscbanner.buffalostate.edu/advising-pins. Students who currently have degree candidacy applications on file can use them for comparison with the Degree Works audit; however, Degree Works is the college's official audit system.
