What is Degree Works?

Degree Works is a web-based tool designed to help students and advisers monitor progress toward degree completion. Degree Works uses degree requirements from the college catalog and re-organizes the student’s transcript to produce an easy-to-read audit.

The audit is divided into blocks to show all of the necessary requirements and how courses taken or in-progress count toward those requirements. Each block contains checkboxes to easily identify what courses and requirements are complete, almost complete, or still outstanding.

Degree Works can be used as part of advising sessions to determine course selections (in conjunction with the courses offered for the term) and review graduation requirements.
