Degree Works Makes Graduation Requirements Crystal Clear

Degree Works is a web-based advisement tool that can be used as a road map towards students’ graduation. It matches students’ academic and course history against the degree requirements as defined in the College Catalog. It also provides specific guidance on recommended future course requirements.
