ACCESSING YOUR AUDIT
RUNNING A "WHAT IF"
myPath is a web based tool to help students and advisors monitor students' progress toward the completion of their program requirements. The audit helps to track program progress, prepare for course selection, and plan for graduation. You can find myPath by logging into myAccount
An audit is a review of past and current coursework that provides information on completed and outstanding requirements. It can be used as a tool to plan and track your progress toward earning your credential.
Students can view their percentage complete based on their program's requirements and credits. Depending on the program requirements, the requirements and credits percentages will likely not match (ie one higher than the other).
Note: Percent complete of Requirements is a calculation of the checkboxes in the audit (could be a course requirement, minimum GPA requirement, or a non-academic requirement etc). Percent complete of Credits is total credits applied towards credential requirements (rounded up).
What does the percentages mean?
0-97% means not complete
98% means courses or requirements are in progress. For example, a student is registered in a course required in the program. We don’t mark the requirements 100% complete because we do not have a final grade for the course in progress.
99% means a minimum requirement has not been met but all other requirements have been. For example a minimum GPA has not been satisfied but all courses are complete.
100% means fully complete

The program that is showing in myPath is the program that you have been accepted into based on your program choice at the time of application. If you would like to change your program, contact the Enrollment Services Office for instructions. In the meantime, you can run a "what-if" report to see what is required in another program. Please watch the "what-if" video for more information.
No. Please speak to a Student Success Advisor for information on changing your program.
Updates will display within 48 hours of the change/update being made.
While we have tried to make sure that your audit is correct, it is difficult to predict every unique situation or problem. We want to work with you to correct any issues as soon as possible. The first step is to clarify what information you believe is wrong. Please email the service desk at email@example.com.
myPath displays completed courses that did not achieve a passing grade in the “Grade requirements not met” area of the audit. This area is below the main body of the audit.
Courses taken at another institution will only show if you have applied for transfer credit. The course will be marked with a “!” next to it, on the Audit.
These are courses that you are registered for but have not yet completed or received grades.
This block contains courses that are not being used to fulfill graduation requirements for this program.
It is a list of courses that do not meet minimum grade requirements for your program.

The audit places each course using a “best fit” scenario and some courses can fit into multiple categories, such as Arts elective and Humanities elective. The “best fit” process will not always be perfect, particularly when multiple possibilities exist and course allocation could change every time a new audit is run.
To see how your courses meet specialization requirements, please run a "what if" audit and select your area of specialization from the drop-down menu option.
Not necessarily. This can be a timing issue such as posting of grades for the current term. If you have followed through on any requirements you were told to complete, you should still be on track for graduation. Contact an academic advisor as soon as possible.
Transfer credits will appear with an "!" Mark next to them. If you have taken a course at another institution and the equivalent course at Douglas, that course may appear in your audit more than once. You may only use an equivalent course once towards any requirement for your program.
Credits earned for one credential may be used to meet some or all of the requirements of a second credential as per the Credentials Awarded Policy. For more information, visit our Credentials Awarded Policy page or contact a Student Success Advisor or our Graduation Office.
