Check your Course Program of Study (CPoS)

The U.S. Department of Education has mandated a regulation limiting payment of federal financial aid only for courses defined as meeting your degree requirements in your selected program of study.  Marshall University has adapted and tested our systems to accommodate and track this requirement.  To determine if your classes meet this eligibility requirement, please follow the steps below.


Step-by-Step Instructions to Check Your CPoS/Degree Audit Status

  • To check your Course Program of Study (CPoS) status, you will log into your MYMU account. Go to the Student Tab (Under Menu), Select Fin-Aid Covered Classes (CPoS)
  • View your class schedule. Your audit will look something like this:

If a course is not eligible for your program, there will be a “NO” under “Eligible Course”.

Please review your DegreeWorks account located on the student tab of myMU, or your academic map (available at https://www.marshall.edu/advising/curricular-resources/) and adjust your schedule immediately.  If you have registration holds or need assistance with a schedule adjustment or determining if your course is allowable in your academic program, please contact your academic advisor.

The Financial Aid Office cannot change your schedule or advise you of what courses will make you in compliance with the Department of Education CPoS rules. Only your Advisor can assist you with this. Your advisor must update DegreeWorks with an override exception if the course should count towards your course program of study.
