You may be wondering what DegreeWorks is. Put simply, DegreeWorks helps students review their academic progress toward graduation. The online degree audit system displays an easy-to-read report summarizing the elements of your degree you’ve completed as well as those you still need.
It provides information on how each requirement was satisfied and what courses can be taken to complete remaining requirements. While DegreeWorks was designed to aid and facilitate academic advising, it is not intended to replace face-to-face advising sessions.
Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about DegreeWorks:
