Degree Program Codes

Page address: https://www.mnsu.edu/registrar/degprogcodes.html

All majors and minors (degree programs) are represented in the student records system by numeric codes.

There is no pattern or method of arriving at the code--it simply must be looked up and/or memorized.

There are reasons for knowing these numeric codes.

  • They are used when departments assign majors/minors to students in ISRS.
  • They are used when ordering DARS audits in certain circumstances.

When students order audits themselves or when advisors order audits using the link on their advisee list on the web, there is no need to know any code numbers.  This is because DARS uses the values that exist on file in ISRS for a student.

However, if audits are ordered using the ISRS DARS Report screen (DA0001CP), you have the option of having audits generated using values that you can enter on that screen.  That is, you can generate an audit with values that may be different from those the student has on file in ISRS.  In order to do this, you need to use the numeric codes for majors and minors.

Note: The oldest catalog that can be used to confer degrees is 2012-2013.

The following table is just a reminder of what the degree abbreviations stand for.

The following tables display the numeric codes for majors/minors along with information concerning which catalogs they exist in.  The catalog year is important since majors, minors, and concentrations (and therefore the codes for these items) CAN change from catalog to catalog.
