Take Hold of Your Degree

Learn about the audit here

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions recently sent you a notification that your credit evaluation has been processed and updated in WESS. The credit evaluation, officially the Analysis of Academic Progress in WESS, is a tool that helps you track progress towards completion of your degree. Our office refers to this document as the "audit" for short. The information provided in your audit includes:

  • cumulative GPA
  • major GPA
  • outstanding courses that still must be completed
  • courses that you've completed at other insititutions (transfer coursework)
  • courses previously completed at Montclair State University
  • courses presently in progress at Montclair State University

You can access your audit through the Montclair State Web Enrollment Services for Students (WESS) site. Note - to log-in you'll need to use your Campus Wide Identifier (CWID) and pin (6-digits).

As you begin to plan your first semester with us, and all of the semesters that will follow, the audit is going to be an increasingly important resource for you. We strongly advise you to read and review your audit. Then, we encourage you to read and review it again. The more often you visit and use the audit, the smoother your journey will be. The audit is truly your road map (and an official "to do" list) for your path towards graduation.


  • Log on to WESS
  • Click on enter student services
  • Enter for your CWID (campus wide identifier) and PIN (6-digits)

A six-digit PIN was initially assigned to you at the point of admission. The PIN will be the date of birth (DOB) which is on file for you. For example, if the date of birth we have on file for you is September 30, 1986, your assigned PIN would be 093086.

  • Click analysis of academic progress which is found under the STUDENT RECORDS dropdown menu. Make sure primary is checked
