What is Degree Works

Degree Works is a web-based, degree-auditing and tracking tool which enables students and advisors to evaluate academic progress towards graduation in accordance to College and major requirements outlined in the College Catalog. This tool will allow students to quickly and easily identify which requirements have been satisfied, and which requirements are outstanding.

In addition, Degree Works can be used to perform a “what-if” analysis to determine how current coursework on a student transcript would be used if a different major was selected.
