We can thank Miami University of Ohio for the creation of the Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS). The first version was developed in 1984 and shared with other institutions in 1985. Presently, there are 140 licensed users of DARS.
DARS has been in use on our campus since 1989. Approximately 22,000 degree audits are produced each academic year. These printed audits are used by students, academic advising offices, and college offices.
