Degree Works Information

The Office of the University Registrar develops and maintains the major/program requirements in Degree Works. Degree Works is a very useful advising tool for students and should be used in careful consultation with your academic advisor.

This system is an important part of students’ degree records. Students must complete requirements on their Degree Works audit prior to graduation. During the last term, when all remaining requirements are in progress, the audit should reach 98%. After final grades are posted and all requirements are complete, the audit should reach 100%.

Please contact with any quesitons or concerns about Degree Works.
