DARS and Grades
DARS: learn more
DARS is an acronym for the Degree Audit Reporting System. We refer to the report from the system as a DARS report; it displays the courses from which you must select in order to complete degree requirements, and it shows how the completed courses apply toward those requirements. The DARS report provides a "snapshot" of where you stand relative to graduation.
Access your DARS online. You will need your OHIO ID and password.
This video should help you understand your DARS report. Grab your DARS (you can log in and print it here) and join us on a guided tour of your academic road map to graduation! Remember, students must complete all requirements on the DARS before graduating.
If you need further explanation about your DARS after viewing the video, contact your academic advisor for assistance.
Access Your Grades
Official grades are available approximately one week after the semester closing date, although grades for some classes might be available earlier for classes that do not meet the entire semester. You may view your grades online in the My OHIO Student Center academic tab.
Verification of Completion
Some students need verification of course completion for their employer or another institution. You may be able to print the screen view of your grade from Blackboard or My OHIO Student Center to provide verification of course completion. However, the decision regarding whether to accept that documentation is at the discretion of each agency's policy and procedures. Check with your Human Resources Office or Office of Nursing.
If you need a degree or enrollment verification letter, that is also a service provided by the registrar's office. Learn more about enrollment and degree verification.
RN to BSN Five-Week Courses
For students in five-week courses, official grades for session 1, session 2, and session 3 (for example, for fall 1, fall 2, and fall 3) are usually available approximately two weeks after the close of the session. If you hava a question about the availability of your official grades after the session is complete, contact the instructor of the course.
