DARS/uAchieve FAQs

DARS (Degree Audit Reporting System) is an automated record of a student’s academic progress toward degree completion in their major, secondary major, minor, and certificates. The DARS audit is a report that contains all requirements and subrequirements for a specific degree program on file in Curriculog supported by the Office of the Registrar.

How does DARS/uAchieve work?

DARS staff enter degree requirement information including majors and concentrations once passed and approved from the University Curriculog processes into the DARS/uAchieve system. The DARS/uAchieve program automatically reads the student’s academic history information and places the courses taken within the context of the correct requirement.


Where can I access my DARS/uAchieve audit?

Audits are viewed via KSIS until March 18th 2024.


What are the benefits of using DARS/uAchieve?

DARS/uAcheive takes its information from the student record; therefore, it contains the most current data. It summarizes your progress to date and explains what is needed for completion of your degree. It facilitates the advisement process allowing less time spent reviewing requirements and more time for academic planning. DARS pulls in your cumulative GPA from KSIS, total hours earned, and will calculate and apply any special GPA or coures requirments needed for coursework in the major.


If I have a question about my DARS/uAchieve audit who should I consult?

Start with your Academic Advisor who will assit you and your adivsing in making wise course selections that support your academic goals. 


Can I use DARS/uAchieve to explore other majors?

A “what if” DARS/uAchieve report can be run for any major that has been implemented in the system. The audit will then show how courses that you have already completed will be applied to a new major. Visit the DARS/uAchieve: Running a What-if audit under Select a Different Program help article for step by step guidance.


Will my transfer courses and exceptions appear on my DARS/uAchieve audit?

Transfer courses along with other requirements/courses which have been approved as a substitution or exception will appear on the audit when entered by your College Dean's Office. Petitions are entered during the last semester prior to graduation. Contact your advisor or advising office with any questions pertaining to your DARS/uAchieve audit.

In the new self service tool, you can view your audit exceptions by selecting Exceptions from the toolbar at the top of your screen. While viewing your audit, you can also select the Applied Exceptions icon at the top right of the screen to view your exceptions.

In the new self service tool, there are a few ways you can view your transfer courses.

  1. Run a Transfer Course Analysis audit.
  2. Click the Courses drop down menu and select Transfer. This displays the courses from your other institutions. Clicking Home will show you the transfer course equivilant course offered at K-State.
  3. Click Transfer Evaluation. This will display all of the transfer course equivalencies broken down by outside instituion.


Does the DARS/uAchieve audit certify completion of degree requirements for graduation?

Yes. DARS/uAchieve is a document designed for colleges, deans, advisors, and students to use as an advising tool and to check graduation requirements. Final certification of degree requirements is reviewed by the Colleges and Academic Departments for final approvals and then confirmed that all processes have been completed by the Office of the Registrar.


Do I need to request access to uAchieve Self Service?

No, uAchieve Self Service is connected to Kansas State University Single Sign On. As long as you have access to KSIS and a reason to access the self service tool, you have access.


How do I run an audit for just one program if I have multiple?

By default, the DARS/uAchieve self service tool will run an audit for all of your programs listed. No need to select one particular program, if multiple are listed.


How do I access my previously run audits?

Click the Audits drop down menu in uAchieve Self Service, click Manage
