The Degree Audit Report, or DAR, is one of the most important academic planning tools that you will have at your disposal. It is available on the Hofstra portal (My.Hofstra.edu). The DAR will show you all the courses that you have already completed as well as those you have in progress, and will show how they fulfill your requirements. It will also outline any remaining requirements. You should refer to your DAR every semester in order to plan for future terms. You will want to bring this with you when you meet with your Advisement dean and/or your faculty/major advisor. If you are exploring alternative majors, you can request a “WHAT-IF” DAR to see how your current course work would fit into a prospective major.
