Course Applicability System
Miami University of Ohio developed the Course Applicability System (CAS), which provides prospective students and their advisors direct access to information about course equivalencies, programs, courses and degree audits in a web environment.
CAS is an information access tool and serves as a gateway to participating institutions' automated degree audit and transfer articulation systems. Users have the option of viewing course-by-course equivalencies, viewing requirements of a degree, entering and storing course work, as well as requesting an evaluation of transfer work against a program. The institutions of which they may request this information must be a participating institution in CAS. Information on becoming a participating institution can be found on the DARS/CAS homepage.
Any Internet user can log into CAS as a guest and view public information such as course offerings and program requirements in a specific academic. Students and advisors can access information about the transferability and applicability of specific course work completed at sending institutions to a particular degree program at a prospective receiving institution. A user can also create an account, which affords them many more possibilities. Creating an account in CAS is free of charge. Once an account is established, the user enters course history (either by typing in courses, choosing courses from a course bank, or electronically importing a transcript) and then requests a Planning Guide showing progress toward a specific degree at a potential receiving institution. The history is saved in CAS, which the user can return to in the future to obtain new information.
