Career Advising

DegreeWorks

DegreeWorks is an online check sheet for students and their advisors to review and monitor progress toward degree completion. The “What If” feature is used to hypothesize a declaration of a major and/or option or a change in major. You will be able to see how far along in your academic career you would be if you declared or changed your major.
