Student What-If Audits

WHAT-IF AUDITS

"What If…" audits allow a student to explore the requirements for an alternate program of study without changing his or her declared major. "What If..." audits can be a useful tool for students considering a major change because it can show a complete picture of the degree requirements including all deficiencies before the student actually changes his or her major and/or college*. Students are encouraged to use the What-If audit in consultation with their academic advisor.

*Transferring colleges or changing majors may require specific credit or GPA requirements.  Please consult the college or major you wish to change to for more details.

The What If can be accessed under the Worksheets tab in DegreeMAP.

The first section is labeled “What-If.” This includes the Level, Degree, and Academic Year and these fields default to the Level, Degree, and Academic Year that you are currently pursuing. The sample student is an Undergraduate pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree with an Academic Year of 2011-2012

Make changes to this section based on the Level, Degree, and Academic Year of the desired set of requirements. The Academic Year chosen here will be the Academic Year that governs the areas of study you choose in your What-If audit.  Choose your current Academic Year or a future Academic Year for your analysis.

The next section is labeled “Choose Your Different Areas of Study.” Choose the Major, Minor, College, and/or Concentration that you are considering. In order to accurately represent the degree requirements for the selected program of study, the Major and the College sections should be selected. 

It is strongly advised that you work with your academic advisor when choosing Major, Minor, College, and/or Concentration to review as it may be possible that the combination you have chosen is not a possible degree path.

The last section is labeled “Choose Your Future Classes.” This section functions the same way as the “Look Ahead” feature. Courses entered here will display as “Planned” and will be applied to degree requirements where appropriate.

The following is how the What-If screen would look to display the requirements for a Bachelor of Science in Statistics and a Minor in Art History with an Academic Year of 2012-2013, with planned courses of AH 1031, 2109, & 3120.

Once you have selected the elements of the desired program of study, click the Process What-If button at the top of the screen to generate the What-If audit. This audit is not saved anywhere and will NOT change your current curriculum.

The information shown will now be related to the requirements chosen with the What-If. You can use the drop down to see what items you selected for the What If Audit and the audit will also show that it is a What-If audit in the top right corner to avoid confusion. The Degree Progress bars will show how close you are to completion based on the newly selected requirements, and the blocks associated with the What If are listed.

Courses that are “PLANNED” show on the What-If worksheet in blue:

Any courses that do not apply to the requirements chosen in the What-If go into Fallthrough Courses section. Classes that apply to the student’s current degree and not to the What-If requirements will go into Fallthrough Courses, but are still applying to the credit total and GPA.



Just as with the Worksheet, the What If audit is viewable in the Student View or in the Unmet Requirements View. This view will show you only the requirements you have left to complete for the chosen set of requirements.
