SOAR utilizes title checking for course matching within the degree audits and exception processing.
There are quite a few EWU courses that are differentiated by title. SOAR can use the various titles to appropriately align these courses with the degree audits. If you ever come across courses that are not applying in SOAR due to the course title not matching; please let me know and I will update SOAR so the appropriate courses are accurately being reflected in the degree audits.
Unfortunately, on occasion there are limitations. Courses that are not differentiated by title but instead by the course section number will need to be handled via exception in SOAR. For instance: workshops, seminars, topics courses where the title is generic – WORKSHOP IN DEPT. However, there may be options for handling term specific courses.
For those that enter exceptions in SOAR…course titles must be exactly as listed in SOAR.
Enter the title in all caps as it appears in SOAR, the title can also be copied and pasted in the Course Title field in the Title Check and Transfer Course Substitution. All the information you need to enter the exception can be found in SOAR on the Courses Tab – EWU Equivalents or Audit Tab – View EWU Course History.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions. Thank you for using SOAR!
