The University announced an upgrade for DARS (Degree Audit Reporting System) on September 13th.
This upgrade provides increased functionality with the latest technology and includes a Self-Service application. Students and Advisors will be able to use the Self-Service site to request audits of degree requirements, view course history and review transfer credit evaluations.
Temple students will still access DARS through http://tuportal.temple.edu. To do so, students can select the Student Tools tab, and then, in the Records channel, click on Degree Audit. The direct link is http://dars.temple.edu.
Academic and Faculty Advisors can also access DARS through http://tuportal.temple.edu.
Log in, click on the Self-Service Banner link, and then the Faculty and Advisor button to access the Advisor Menu to request a degree audit. A training guide will be in the Banner Resource Center tab, under the Student menu and list of “Training Materials and Recorded Sessions.” See “Submit a Degree Audit.”
DARS for students pursuing a Music major are still in progress and will ONLY display the General Education requirements at this time. Please contact the DARS Staff with any questions.

New and improved features of DARS include: a convenient list of student’s courses; a new interactive audit that uses pie charts and bar graphs to show degree progress; and the ability to use the “Planned Course” feature, so that students can make more efficient course selections in future registrations.
Academic Advisors can click on the new “DARS for Advisors” link under the TUAPPLICATIONS section of TUportal or directly at http://dars.temple.edu.
