Beginning Monday, February 10, Canisius College freshmen and first-year transfer students will have access to the new degree audit system, GriffAudit 2.0. Please note that the undergraduate degree audits were created from the 2019 – 20 academic catalog. Therefore, Griff Audit 2.0 will not be available for upper-classmen at this time.
Links to the system can be accessed from the following sections on the myCanisius portal:
- Advisor Services or Faculty Services—These sections are found under the Launchpad heading and provide links to both versions of GriffAudit.
- Student Profile—This button is located under the My Campus heading and takes you to the new advisor tool, which allows you to view your advisees’ audits through their individual student profiles. Students can only view their own profiles, but advisors can view the profiles of all of their advisees.
This comprehensive academic advising and degree audit solution provides students and advisors with tools and information to successfully navigate degree requirements. With GriffAudit 2.0,
students have a complete guide to degree completion and seamlessly integrates with information from CourseLeaf and Banner. These new efficiencies will provide better support for our students’ academic goals and better access to academic advice for advisors.
Undergraduate advisers should begin to familiarize themselves with the new degree audit system prior to the start of advisement and registration. Please refer to the “Learn About Student Profile” button on the MyCanisius portal to review all training documentation. Video tutorials and FAQs are available on this wiki page to help navigate the system and better understand all of its features.
In addition, there will be training sessions next week that cover both GriffAudit 2.0 and the Student and Advisor Profiles during the following times:
- Monday, February 10 @ 4:00 p.m. in Science Hall 002C (ITS Training Room)
- Tuesday, February 11 @ 8:30 a.m. in Old Main 119
- Wednesday, February 12 @ 12:30 p.m. in Science Hall 002C (ITS Training Room)
If you cannot attend but wish to schedule a training session for yourself or your department, please contact Emily McGorry at firstname.lastname@example.org or at Ext. 2121.
Students will be instructed to contact their advisors directly with questions or concerns regarding their degree audit. If you believe there is an error or missing information on a student’s audit, please contact the Student Records and Financial Services Center utilizing the new “GriffAudit” mailbox at email@example.com. Please include the student’s ID number and details regarding the error or omission. If you have any additional questions or concerns regarding the new GriffAudit 2.0 system, please submit using the GriffAudit mailbox and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
