DegreeWorks is a web-based academic advising, degree audit, and transfer articulation tool.  It gives students the ability to track their progress within a program using an easy-to-read audit that lists all of that program's common curriculum requirements.  Additionally, the DegreeWorks software allows students to do "what if" scenarios that show their progress should they change to another academic program or degree.  

DegreeWorks Can Help You: 

  • Determine what requirements you need in order to complete your degree or certificate
  • Show your overall percentage of degree or certificate completion
  • View individual course grades and grade-point average (GPA)
  • Show which courses you have taken or transferred, and what requirements they meet
  • View transfer credits, waivers, course substitutions and exemptions applied toward your degree 
  • See how your coursework could be applied toward another program using the “What If” option
  • Project grade performance using the “GPA calculator” 
  • Estimate how many semesters it will take you to graduate 
  • Plan future course schedules using the “Planner” option to see how your selections will affect progress toward your degree

DegreeWorks is a tool meant to be used for educational and planning purposes only. Students should meet regularly with an academic advisor to review degree progress and verify the accuracy of DegreeWorks audits. Students must complete a formal audit and graduation application with an advisor prior to the posted application deadline. A DegreeWorks audit is not considered an official LSSC transcript or record of completed coursework.
