Degree audit forms

Map your degree requirements with degree audit forms

Degree audit forms can be used by students in any year of study to track their progress towards meeting program requirements, and to show the courses that they will need to take in the future.

Only graduating students must submit audit forms to the registrar’s office. Remember, it is the student’s responsibility to make sure requirements have been met to graduate.

Instructions on how to use degree audit forms

Please ensure that you select the appropriate form for your program as listed in the academic calendar you are following for your program of study.

For degree programs, please ensure that you complete all sections of the degree audit form and include courses in which you are currently registered that will complete your degree requirements:

  • 120 credits
  • 3/4000 level credits as required for program (BA = 36 credits; BComm = 39 credits; BSc = 30 credits from 3/4000 level Science courses)
  • Distribution requirements applicable to your degree program
  • Courses completed for your major, minor, honours programs
  • BA and BSc students are not required to list elective courses (courses not included in the major(s), minor(s), honours or distribution)

For certificate programs, please ensure that you complete all sections of the certificate audit form and include courses in which you are currently registered that will complete the 18 credits specific to the certificate program you are completing.

For graduating students

To graduate, degree audit forms must be completed and returned to the Registrar’s Office.

For May graduation

  • degree audit forms due by Oct. 30 for students applying for May graduation
  • certificate audit forms due November 15 for students applying for May graduation

For October graduation

  • first week of September for students applying for October graduation 

Please print the appropriate degree audit form, complete it, and return it to the Registrar's Office at the Wallace McCain Student Centre — 2nd floor.

Registrar’s Office
Mount Allison University
62 York St.

Degree audit forms will be verified against transcripts to ensure that requirements will be fulfilled based on courses completed and current course registration.

Students applying for graduation must be registered in all of the courses that are required for program completion when submitting the audit form(s).

The audit forms will require a signature of approval of the appropriate program advisor ONLY under the following circumstances:

  • Majors/honours which require complementary courses chosen in consultation with the program advisor 
  • Any variances in the prescribed program as listed in the academic calendar under which you are completing your program requirements, that have been approved. A record of approved variances should have been e-mailed by the appropriate academic department head or dean to the registrar or academic advisor

If you do not know who the program advisor is for your major/minor/honours/certificate, please refer to the list of program advisors

STUDENTS ARE ADVISED TO RETAIN A COPY OF THEIR AUDIT FORM(S).

If you have any questions concerning completion of degree audit forms, please contact the academic advisor at advisor@mta.ca or at 506-364-2269.

Program Evaluation

Evaluate your degree progress in Connect

Program Evaluation, accessed through Connect, is designed to help students and advisors evaluate progress towards completion of degree requirements. 

You will find it under Connect > Academic Profile.

Program evaluation is NOT an official degree audit and is not used in any official capacity by the University to verify degree compliance or confirm satisfactory completion of degree requirements.

Questions or concerns about degree and program requirements can be directed to advisor@mta.ca.

What can I view using Program Evaluation?

Program evaluation is based on program requirements listed in the academic calendar. It defaults to the academic calendar under which you were admitted (or re-admitted following a period of hiatus from studies.)

You can use program evaluation to view: 

  • requirements for your degree and program(s) 
  • which major/minor/honours program you are enrolled in
  • which academic calendar you are recorded as following
  • how many credits you have earned and how many credits are remaining
  • courses you have taken and courses you are registered for
  • your cumulative grade point average
  • which program requirements you have met or are expected to meet based on your current course registration
  • which courses remain for you to take to complete requirements
  • approved variances in your program (for example, the replacement of one specified course with another)
  • how many courses you have completed toward a program you are interested in studying by using the “What if I changed my program of study?” function (evaluation reports for a program in which you are not registered)
  • how many courses you have completed toward your program of study following a different academic calendar (using the “What if I changed my program of study?” function)

Program evaluation is a tool for general program guidance only. There are limitations to this system and it may not accurately reflect your progress towards meeting degree requirements.

What can it not show?

Program evaluation does not have the capacity to apply non-designated transfer credits in the evaluation of program requirements. Approved variances must be manually recorded by the academic advisor. Program evaluation cannot be used for specially approved majors/minors. Program evaluation cannot account for regulations concerning credits counted in common between major/minor or double major programs.

Please report discrepancies in the information provided in the program evaluation to degreeaudit@mta.ca
