Certificates - Undergraduate - FAQ: How is undergraduate certificate progress tracked?
Undergraduate certificate progress is tracked with the Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS).
The Office of the Registrar, with certificate program faculty/staff, develops a DARS audit that accurately reflects all certificate requirements for students, advisors, and the certificate program to track student progress.
If your certificate is approved to serve University Special students: Certificate programs must manually track University Special students; DARS is not available for special students. The certificate program is responsible for manually tracking University Special students and reporting completion to the Registrar's Office.
