What is Degree Works?
Degree Works is a computerized guide to help you and your advisor monitor and plan your pathway toward completion of your certificate(s) and degree(s). Degree Works compares your coursework against the requirements for your declared major/program to produce an easy-to-read audit divided into blocks (Degree/Certificate, Major/Program, Core, etc.). Check-boxes within each block show whether requirements are completed, in-progress (enrolled courses), or are still needed. With Degree Works you also can run What-If scenarios to try different majors, and your advisor and you can set up plans for future semesters, too.
