Academic Record (DARS)

The Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS) is a cumulative curriculum record of a graduate student's progress in completing an ISU graduate degree or program. Students may run a degree audit report for their declared graduate programs. DARS will detail all of the requirements that must be completed to finish. Currently, DARS is available for all master's, licensure, and certificate programs. Students should consult their advisors if they are doctoral students.

Accessing DARS

  1. Go to
  2. Log on to the MyISU Portal using Sycamore login and password.
  3. Click on the "Student" tab.
  4. Click on "DARS Menu" link.
  5. Click on "Submit an Audit" and follow instructions from there to get a DARS.

Important: Student should run a DARS report each semester to use during the advising and registration period for the next term. Students are encouraged to review their DARS report each term, report any inaccuracies or questions to their academic advisor, and use the report to plan for program completion. DARS is a tool for students and advisors to use to help track progress toward program completion. It is not a substitute for academic advising, nor does it certify students for graduation.
