Degree Works

Picture of a GPS location system that says, "Degree Works... Your GPS to graduation."

Your GPS to graduation success!

Just as a Global Positioning System will tell you exactly where you are every step of the way, Degree Works is your Graduation Planning System (GPS) that tells how far you've come, and how far you need to go, in order to reach your graduation goals. Thus, Degree Works is your GPS to graduation success!
Degree Works is an easy to use web-based degree audit and academic advising tool that allows you to:
  • Run your own degree audit
  • View your progress toward earning your diploma
  • See how your current courses apply to your graduation requirements
  • Determine how changing your major will affect your graduation date
  • Track progress of petitions

Thinking of changing your major? Use the "What if" option- Degree Works allows you to determine which classes you have taken that can count towards a different degree program of your choosing.
