Program of Study & Degree Audit

A Degree Completion Requirement

DegreeWorks – All students admitted Fall 2010 or after.

DegreeWorks is a degree auditing system. It is a web-based program that provides easy access for students and advisors to track courses completed and plan for those still needed in preparation for registration and graduation. It allows for easier, more efficient advising and it assists advisors in tracking meetings. DegreeWorks should be used to enhance face-to-face advisement meetings. Using DegreeWorks will help students and the University with planning needs. DegreeWorks functions can be used similarly for Undergraduate and Graduate students. Information is the same for both unless otherwise noted. DegreeWorks Information
