Degree Works is the University's web-based degree audit tool. It facilitates real-time monitoring of student's academic progress toward degree completion. Degree Works combines USA's degree requirements and students' completed and in-progress coursework in an easy-to-read color-coded checklist format that helps students see how courses count towards the declared program of study. Degree Works also clearly displays outstanding requirements to help students finish their degree on time. Since there are often multiple ways of completing the same program, students and their advisors will be able to explore course options.
Degree Works also allows students to run "what if" scenarios to see how changing a student's current academic program (adding/deleting/changing majors, minors, etc.) will affect degree progress. This will help students choose the path that's right for them and still complete the required elements of their program. Degree Works also has a variety of GPA calculators to choose from.
Important Note: Degree Works is designed to aid and facilitate academic advising, but is not intended to replace face-to-face advising sessions, the Undergraduate or Graduate Bulletin, or the Office of the Registrar. Degree Works is neither an official academic transcript nor an official notification of completion of degree requirements.
