"MyDegree automatically generates a report reflecting a student's academic progress toward the completion of a degree. In addition, a student may request "What If" reports for other majors they may be considering. The report automatically places the student's Missouri S&T course work, transfer courses and courses in progress within a series of requirements and sub-requirements for a specific degree program.
A degree audit is not a confirmation of requirement or degree completion. Students must meet with their academic advisor to confirm progress toward earning the degree." - S&T Registrar
