Faculty and Staff Assistance

Important Note: DegreeWorks is designed to aid and facilitate academic advising, but is not intended to replace face-to-face advising sessions. DegreeWorks is neither an official academic transcript nor an official notification of completion of degree requirements. 

  • Undergraduate and Graduate Students
  • Advising Staff and Faculty Advisors
  • Financial Aid
  • Registrar's Office

DegreeWorks helps by:

  • Displaying the degree requirements and identifying the courses you must complete to earn your degree.
  • Providing a “what if” analysis if you are contemplating changing your major.
  • Providing a direct link to the course description, pre-requisites, and co-requisites.
  • Projecting an estimate of how many semesters it will take you to graduate.

How is a DegreeWorks audit different from your transcript?

  • DegreeWorks presents you with the courses required in your degree plan, as well as the courses that you have already taken.
  • Your transcript is the official college record listing the courses taken each semester.
