Tracking Your Own Academic Progress

The university's STARS system provides immediate access to an unofficial copy of a student transcript and a degree audit system showing requirements for each academic program. 

STARS also allows students and their advisors to map out an individualized plan of work (POW), outlining the classes students will take toward their degree in a specified timeframe.

Visit stars.wayne.edu to log on, or for more detailed information on STARS and its components.
