DARS – No link to DARS on Advisee Detail Page

This document explains what to do when an advisor reports that there is no link to DARS on their Advisee Detail pages in My UW-Madison

Context of error

My UW-Madison offers academic advisors the ability to view details of each of their advisees on an advisee detail page. One of the features of the detail page is to offer DARS-authorized advisors a link to the DARS system. The link appears near the bottom of the page:

Advisee Detail Page showing DARS link

Error Reported: No link to DARS

If no link to DARS appears on the pages please see below.

  • The link only appears for advisors that are authorized for DARS.

  • A DARS authorization form can be found via the DARS Authorization Form link on the Registrar's Offices DARS Information page: http://registrar.wisc.edu/dars.htm. Once the advisor mails or faxes the form to the Registrar's office, the DARS coordinator will create a DARS account and contact the advisor when the account is ready.

  • Please contact the DoIT Help Desk, 264-4357(HELP), if the advisor has been authorized and the link does not appear.
