You may have heard of the University's plans to implement a degree audit system. Degree audit is about student success. The new system will provide an easy way for students, faculty, staff and advisors to monitor and plan progress towards a degree. It will also assist departments with clearing requirements for graduation, and it will alert students to what they have not yet completed.
What degree audit can do for Stanford:
Track progress towards degree
Support degree planning “What if” projections
Notify and alert students
Make it easy to understand requirements
Phase 1: Degree Audit project team met with every single department on campus to collect over 1,100 degrees – both majors and minors – and process and standardize these. The team completed requirement gathering for all programs across campus, in-depth interviews with 21 departments, and collected detailed degree requirements for 250 graduate and undergraduate degree plans. Completed remaining plans including professional schools in April 2020. Vendor began encoding the School of Humanities and Sciences’ plans.
Phase 2: The Degree Audit team and the vendor encoded the degree requirements for all the graduate and undergraduate degree plans.
Phase 3 of the project kicks off with testing of the pilot programs. As more requirements are encoded, additional programs will be progressively added to the testing process.
The final phase of the degree audit roll out includes trainings and presentations to students, faculty, and staff across the University. Then We Celebrate!
