Degree Works is here!
Degree Works is a web-based degree audit and tracking system helping students and academic advisors monitor progress toward degree completion. It also allows for advising notes and provides a place to create semester plans. Degree Works provides a more accessible, convenient, and organized way for students to know where they are academically and how they can plan the rest of their college careers.
Degree Works Features
The worksheet displays a student's degree progress based on their declared major. This worksheet displays all the degree, general education/Core requirements, major, second major (if applicable), and minor (if applicable) requirements and the classes the student has taken to satisfy them. The worksheet also shows incomplete requirements, reminding students of what classes they need to take. It illustrates the classes that have not been attempted (in red) and the classes in progress (in blue). For the classes that have not yet been attempted, Degree Works offers suggestions as to which class to take, thereby eliminating the hassle of searching for classes to satisfy an unmet requirement.
The What-If allows an advisor or student to see a worksheet for a new or second major, or the addition of a minor; whether they are currently undeclared or thinking about changing their major. The What-If allows students to view how their progress changes with a new major, which classes can still be applied towards the new major or minor, which classes will not count, and which new classes need to be taken.
The Notes tab is for faculty or staff to enter notes relating to their discussion with a student.
The GPA Calculator tab is for students to calculate what their term GPA may be based on what grade they predict they will get in a course. The GPA Calculator can help students in realistic goal-setting at the beginning of the term, as well as help with accurate mapping of their paths for achieving honors, avoiding probation or suspension, or satisfying personal academic aspirations.
The Look Ahead tab is for a student to see exactly how a future course may be applied to graduation requirements.
