My Degree Dashboard Security Authorization Form Instructions

The My Degree Dashboard Security Authorization Form (formerly DARS) should be completed by staff to request access to view or enter student degree audit exceptions. Use of this form requires completion of the online FERPA REVIEW. 

Please note: Individuals also needing access to generate or view degree audits should use the Student Records Security Authorization Form and indicate the DARSVIEW operator class. Also, access to the planning system (formerly GPS) is tied to the ADVSRVW and MANDADV operator classes.
