View this information as a PDF: Your Online Degree Audit.
Running an audit for a different program, also known as a “what if” audit, allows you to run an audit for any program (major/degree) at UNT to see how it might work for you.
Note: This will not change your declared program. If you would like to change your official major, contact an academic advisor in the department of your new major.

Select the major you want to run the audit for from the “Major” dropdown menu.
Majors are abbreviated differently than the program code. There may also be several versions of the same major. For example, each major starting with “E6-ESL/” has an acronym at the end for a specialization within the “EDE6-ESL” major.
To understand the abbreviation for a major, start by breaking it down into parts and comparing to the UNT Catalog: “E6-ESL/SES” is a
Sometimes the major abbreviation is easy to figure out, like Cybersecurity in the College of Engineering is “CYBR”, but other times it can be confusing. If you're not sure which major is the one you want to run the audit for, you can select a major that you think is close, select the degree, and then check the program. If the program isn't what you wanted, you can select another major and try again.
Note: The program code is included at the end of the program name. Checking the program code may help you confirm whether you selected the correct program.
Note: The catalog year always begins in the Fall term, even if you started at UNT or switched your program during the Spring or Summer terms. So for example, if you started at UNT in Spring 2023, you would select “Fall 2022.”
The catalog year for your declared program is shown on the Request an Audit page.
All requirements are published in the UNT Catalog. Because program and even UNT core requirements can change from year-to-year, a new version of the UNT Catalog is published every year. These versions are called “catalog years.” To view the requirements which would apply to you, it is important to select the appropriate catalog year.
Generally, students follow the catalog for the year they entered UNT. For example, if the first term you attended UNT was Fall 2022, then you’d likely be following the 2022-2023 catalog.
Note: Leave the “Run Type” setting at the default. Changing this setting can result in an audit that shows inaccurate information.
To request a new audit, you can click “Audits” in the navigation bar and then click “Request New.”

You can run an audit for an Undergraduate Academic Certificate by selecting “UGRD ACERT” from the College dropdown menu. The major will be the specific certificate, and the degree will be “ACAD CERT.”
It is not possible to run an audit for a different minor. This is because minors do not have separate audits. Instead, minors are added to a degree program audit, which allows the audit system to correctly count courses toward major or minor requirements.
The image below shows a student pursuing a B.A. in Non-Profit Leadership Studies with a minor in Management and an undergraduate academic certificate in Conflict Resolution. The bachelor’s degree is the first program, noted in green, and the certificate is the second program, noted in blue. The minor, noted in orange, is added to the bachelor’s degree. In this example, running an audit for this student’s declared programs would result in one audit with the bachelor’s degree and minor requirements and another audit with the requirements for the undergraduate academic certificate.
If you have questions about minors, it is recommended to contact your academic advisor.
