Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS)

DARS is a self-directed, automated electronic tool used by students, advisors, and the graduation evaluator.  It produces advising information illustrating a student's progress in fulfilling the graduation requirements of their degree, diploma or certificate.  DARS will assist the student with the following:

  • Identifying all the requirements needed to complete a specific degree, diploma or certificate
  • Indicate which courses have already been completed, and how they apply
  • Specify which courses are needed to graduate
  • Assist the student and advisor with academic and career counseling

The DARS audit is designed to help the student identify and understand current academic requirements for program completion.  The DARS audit is not a transcript.  It is not intended to report student achievement to outside parties.  Federal law prohibits transmission to a third party.

It is the responsibility of the student to complete all requirements for the selected program whether or not they have been identified on the HTC DARS audit.  Students are encouraged to review the college catalog or academic planning guide and report any inaccuracies found on the HTC DARS audit to the academic advisor.
