This is a fun and interesting tool. "What If" Scenarios allow you to process speculative degree audits using your current class history. You can compare your information against the requirements for a different major and catalog year. The possibilities are endless.
I want to change my major. How can I see what would be required if I made this change?
You can use the "What If" option on the Audits tab to do an audit using criteria you select. Please be sure to select a Degree, Catalog term and Major along with any corresponding Minors or Concentrations. The selected major will be moved to the window on the right. To deselect the major from that window, highlight it by clicking on it and then click the REMOVE button located below the window. Once the major is selected, click on the PROCESS AUDIT button to generate "What If" audit.
"What If" audits do not guarantee that you will be able to major in the area you select.
Should you decide you'd like to change your major, contact your current academic advisor for assistance, new major information and instructions on making the change.
Why am I receiving an error when I run a "What If" scenario?
The "What If" tool requires that you make a selection in the "Major" field. Failure to select a major will result in an error.
Can my advisor see my "What If" scenario?
No. What If scenarios are not stored in Auburn DegreeWorks. Your advisor can only see your results if the two of you work through a "What If" procedure together. You can also print a copy to show your advisor.
