  • Your worksheet under the Program Audit format is a snapshot in time, and gives you an indication of what courses you have left to complete.
  • It is divided into core classes for your program/major, General Education (or Arts and Science) requirements, minors (if you have declared one) and electvies.
  • It also lists unused and insufficient courses that are not being counted toward your degree.
  • Click the "process new" tab which is located near the top and middles of the worksheet.
  • See your academic advisor to review your audit.

There is a legend at the top of your worksheet that will help you understand the symbols. The different requirements that are included are complete, not complete, nearly complete (for in-progress courses).

During a semester when you are registered in a class and there is not yet a final grade this course will show as nearly complete in your audit. This symbol will also show for courses that you have registered in for a future semester as well.

If you are in a program that has a major and you have not yet declared your major there will be no curriculum showing in your worksheet. Students are expected to declare a major before completing 20 courses. You can submit a major declaration form to the Registrar's Office to declare your major. Some program majors have admission requirements. Your academic advisor can help you understand what admission requirements you may need to declare a major.
If you are currently in a program without graduation requirements there will be no program blocks, General Education (or Arts & Sciences) requirements or electives to populate your audit. You will simply see a list of courses that you have completed included any transfer courses you have also submitted to MRU for evaluation. This would apply to Open Studies, University Entrance Option, Academic Upgrading and any University Transfer program.
Your transfer courses will be listed as they complete program requirements. If your transfer credits do not meet program equivalency they will be listed as electives or unused courses. You can find more information on transfer credits in the Academic Calendar or on Credit Registration information website under Transfer Equivalencies.
The program block, which should appear at the top of your worksheet, provides information on the courses that are core requirements for your program based on the calendar year that you were accepted into that program.
  • Gives you an idea of the types of coures that you still have left to complete in your General Education or Arts and Sciences requirements.
  • General Education requirements will be broken down by cluster and tier, Arts and Sciences requirements will be listed by Area.
  • Please see your academic advisor to clarify requirements if you are not sure.
  • Unused courses are not counted toward your credential. Since they do not fit anywhere else in your audit, they are listed separately as unused courses.
  • If you see courses in your unused section that you feel should be included in any of your audit sections (i.e. program block, General Education, Arts and Sciences, or electives) please see your academic advisor.
mruGradU8 is a snapshot in time. If you take courses that can fill two possible areas (for instance a General Education or an elective) there is a chance that the course will move from one area to another as you complete more courses in your credential. Your program audit may change as you take more courses toward your credential, so it is very important that you seek advising for program planning. Your academic advisor is available to help you.
