Documentation has been added to the site to showcase the new Exceptions from the Audit feature that will be available to advisors following Monday’s DARS upgrade. With this new feature, exceptions are quicker to enter and more intuitive. Additionally, exception types have been upgraded – the RC exception has been replaced with the CP exception and the SC exception has been replaced with the CS exception, which is able to apply in multiple locations at once. All advisors are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the Exceptions from the Audit, as the existing exceptions portal channel will be phased out-of-use.

The new documentation can be found on the Resources page or here:

DARS – Exceptions from the Self-Service Audit

Audit Interpretation Guide Added

A new guide has been added to the site, replacing a former help page that was on the DARS site. It explains various indicators and codes that can appear on DARS audits, including Requirement and Subrequirement status indicators, course codes, special grades, and exception types. It is on the Resource page and is also viewable here:

DARS Updated

DARS has been upgraded to include new functionality. Soon, Temple students admitted in fall 2016 or later will be able to view an 8-semester “Roadmap” for their major. Additionally, they will be able to create their own “Plans” to map out the progression of the coursework needed to graduate in 4 years!

Advising departments will notify students as Roadmaps become available for their specific majors.

DARS Update And Student Access

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.

DARS Advisor Log-On

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.”
