Academic requirements are graduation rules that students need to follow to successfully complete their academic objectives. Academic requirements contain requirement parameters, pre-conditions, connector types, partitions, detail requisites or restrictions, and line item parameters. Requirements can be simple, such as requiring a minimum GPA of 3.000, or more complex with many parts.


Requirement groups are sets of requirements that identify the student population for the audit engine and advisement process to analyze. A requirement group can consist of one or more requirements, individual courses, or a combination of courses, requirements, and conditions.


For example, requirement groups can target all undergraduate students, or target only undergraduate students in the Math plan, or only undergraduate students who belong to a specific student group. When you run a degree audit for a student, the audit engine uses the requirement group whose academic structure matches that of the student.
