Academic Advisement Report (AAR)
Starting in Spring 2021, you have access to a new degree audit in SOLAR. The new Academic Advisement Report (AAR) is replacing DARS, which will be deactivated following the Spring 2021 semester. We invite you to start using the AAR now so you are familiar with using it and can compare requirements while DARS is still active.
WHERE IS AAR?
HOW DO I USE MY AAR?
The AAR allows you to track your progress toward graduation by showing all requirements for your degree (e.g., skills, university, general education, foreign language, diversity, and major/ minor/ certificate requirements) and whether a requirement is satisfied or not satisfied.
You can view the AAR in an interactive online format or request to view the AAR as a PDF. We recommend viewing online.
In the interactive AAR, each requirement area can be collapsed or expanded by clicking on the arrows next to the requirement. When you first open your AAR, all requirements that have already been met will be collapsed, as indicated by a right-facing arrow. Requirements that still need to be completed will be expanded, as indicated by a down-facing arrow, to allow you to see what you still need to do to fulfill the requirement.
Prior to meeting with your advisor and/or scheduling your courses each semester, review your AAR to ensure you are staying on track to complete all of your degree requirements.
Important Note Regarding In-Progress Courses
A requirement will only be met once the applicable coursework is completed. Thus, if you are currently enrolled in a course to meet a requirement, the course will show as “In Progress” while the requirement will show as “Not Satisfied” until the final grade is posted. Likewise, a repeat-in-progress course will not replace the original course nor will it satisfy an applicable requirement until the final grade is posted.
