See below for a comprehensive list of our faculty’s frequently asked questions.

A degree audit displays the courses taken and still needed for a particular student as applicable to their current major. They are essential to use for proper advising.

Log into MyCSU, click on your Faculty tab, click on Student Advising, select your advisee, click on their name, and click on advising worksheet- unofficial and then you can view or print out the advising worksheet.

You will need to have the student log into MyCSU under their account and print out the audit for you.

Once a student has earned 61 hours or more, they can request an official degree audit through their MyCSU account. Click on the student tab, on the left click on forms and fill out the online form. The student will receive an email from the Registrar’s Office within two weeks with their audit. Students can only receive one official audit. When they apply to graduate, we automatically audit their record. Graduate students need to apply for graduation the semester before they are eligible.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 helps protect the privacy of student education records. The Act provides eligible students the right to inspect and review education records, the right to seek to amend those records and to limit disclosure of information from the records. The Act limits the information we can release and to whom it can be released. Directory information can be released to any party and is as follows:

  • name, address and telephone listing
  • e-mail address
  • date and place of birth
  • field(s) of study
  • participation in officially recognized activities and sports
  • weight and height of student-athletes
  • dates of attendance, degrees and awards
  • photographs
  • most recent previous school attended
  • full-time or part-time status

CSU has created a waiver the student can fill out, giving us permission to release educational information to both the student and any third party. The waiver is found on MyCSU under your Faculty tab. Click on Student Information Release Retrieval to obtain the waiver. If there is a waiver on file, the student or third party MUST provide you with the question and answer and may not be ‘led’ on either. Once this information is received, you are free to discuss the student’s information. You may also speak to students via their BucMail without retrieving the waiver information.
