What is MAP Degree Audits and how will it help me?
MAP Degree Audits is a self-advising tool that greatly simplifies the preparation of student transfer and graduation. It is an automated process for tracking a student's academic progress toward completing an academic program and for Transfer General Education requirements to the CSU or UC system. Currently only coursework from SBCC will be included in your report. Transfer-In courses from other schools will be included in the future.

What are the advantages?
It provides an easy-to-read tool for you to examine progress toward your major, and transfer goals following IGETC or CSU. You can use degree audit reports and do some "major shopping" by looking at what degrees you may be closest to finishing or find a double major. It is an excellent tool for planning which courses you need to register for to complete your goals.

Do I still need to see an Academic Counselor?
Yes! The academic counselor will use the degree audit report in the process of advising you about your program of study and transfer plans.
