DegreeWorks is…

DegreeWorks is a computerized, web-based degree audit program and academic advising tool that has been designed to assist students and their advisors in reviewing their progress toward graduation.

This program takes courses from the student’s transcript (which are arranged chronologically) and reorganizes them so advisors and students can see the completed and remaining degree requirements by categories.

What is the “What-If” audit?

“What-If” audit allows advisors and students to process speculative degree audits for students using their current class history.

Students can use this feature if they are thinking of changing their majors, minors and/or concentrations and would like to know how their course(s) will be applicable to their intended program.

VERY IMPORTANT:

When selecting the requirement criteria for a “What-If” audit, it is important to select the Degree Program (ex. Bachelor of Arts) before selecting the Degree/Major combinations from the drop down list.

Note:DegreeWorks reflects the requirements for the 2009-2011 Undergraduate and Graduate Bulletins.

  • Term Calculator
  • Advice Calculator

What is Look Ahead?

This feature allows students to view how a future course can be applied to their graduation requirements.

This is similar to running a Planner audit (SEP). Students mostly use this feature because they do not have access to process audits from the Planner.

  • Students may view any holds/stops on their record.
  • Students can estimate how many semesters it will take them to graduate.
  • Students can experiment with potential Grade Point Average through the GPA calculator.

What is in it for advisors?

  • LESS PAPERWORK.
  • PROVIDES CONSISTENT INFORMATION

No more “He said/She said”. DegreeWorks provides the same information to all students regarding their major requirements.

Reminder:

The Notes feature on DegreeWorks allows advisors to place a note on the student’s audit. These notes can serve as a reminder to the student and be helpful to other advisors that might meet with the same student.

slide28

The Office of the Registrar

What is in it for advisors?

  • ALLOWS FOR MORE MEANINGFUL ADVISEMENT SESSIONS

Using DegreeWorks, and asking your students to review their audits before they meet with you, allows students to play an active role in the advising process.

In addition, rather than just reviewing registration, you can spend more time talking about the student’s development, choices and future plans.

slide29

The Office of the Registrar

What can advisors do to help DegreeWorks function more efficiently?

  • Make sure to review your students’ major audits; you are the experts.

________________

  • Provide clear information to students regarding the department’s major requirements.
  • Your suggestions for improvement are always welcome.

IMPORTANT REMINDER

Note:

The DegreeWorks advisement system tries its best to fit all of the “In Progress” (most recently registered) courses, sometimes moving other courses that previously fulfilled the requirements.

For this reason, it is critical that users understand degree requirements. This issue should not be a cause for concern, as long as students are aware while planning their future registration(s).

All courses will be properly applied during the official graduation review by the Graduation Auditors.
