Degree Works is a web based tool to help students and advisors monitor student progress toward degree completion. Degree Works combines the requirements of each program of study with the coursework completed by each student into an easily readable worksheet; this worksheet lists courses completed, courses remaining for completion plus important information, such as GPA, substitutions or exceptions, “what if”, GPA calculator, planning options and more.
Degree Works is available to all students enrolled in degree, certificate, or diploma programs. Degree Works provides an online, real-time, but unofficial, degree audit. It allows students to view progress toward graduation and is used as an important advising resource.
Students should monitor their Degree Works degree audits throughout the semester, especially after registering or changing schedules and after grades are posted. If there is a question about the degree audit or placement of courses, the student should contact his/her advisor immediately and follow up with the Registrar’s Office if a correction is needed. Substitutions or exceptions regarding required courses must be reported by the advisor to the Registrar’s Office.
Students who are considering a change of major may use the “What if” tab to create an audit of the new program requirements. Students who would like assistance in the use of Degree Works may contact their advisor or visit WaveNet Central.
