Frequently Asked Questions
Q. The letter I received from the Graduation Office doesn't match the audit. Which one should I follow?
A. Once you apply for your degree and start receiving quarterly letters from the Graduation Evaluator,
you should no longer consult Degree Audit for degree status information. Information received from
the Graduation Office is your official notification.
Q. Can I view my placement test results?
A. Yes. Once you logon to the audit site you will find a Tab called "Test Scores". If you have taken any
placement tests the information will appear under this tab.
Q. The requirements for my degree have changed since I started the program. How does the audit know which
catalog year requirements I am following?
A. Degree Audit always uses the current catalog year requirements. If you are eligible to complete
a degree under previous year's requirements you should either consult with your program advisor or submit
a degree application to determine your degree status.
Q. Why isn't the audit using credits from other colleges I attended?
A. At this time only transfer courses in Math, English, Biology and Psychology will appear in the audit.
Our goal is to enter all transfer credits for students that have filed their degree paperwork; however, due
to budget and staffing limitations that is not possible at this time.
A degree evaluation from the Graduation Office will include all transfer coursework. If you are transferring
a significant number of credits you are strongly encouraged to submit a degree application four weeks into
your first quarter.
Students who attended other Washington State Community Colleges will likely see all of their transfer credit in
the audit. Washington Community Colleges adopted a common course numbering system and send transcripts electronically
which allows us to transition the coursework into our system with ease.
