Using the Audit

A Degree Works audit is a review of past and current coursework that provides information on completed and outstanding checklist requirements necessary to complete a degree or certificate.  The audit works like a checklist that has boxes that are automatically checked when a requirement is met.

Degree Works uses the information that is current for your transcript. You will be able to view any courses that have been complete, in progress, or transferred in from another institution.  Audits are refreshed nightly and may not reflect information obtained that day.  Keep in mind that any transfer work or grade changes that have not been formally submitted and accepted will not appear on your audit.

Your degree audit is a tool to provide you with academic information related to your degree or certificate progress. It displays courses required and completed in your degree program. Your transcript is your official college academic record and provides a chronological list of courses completed and other academic information.

Yes.  The audit will show you the courses you still need. To learn more about the courses, including descript.ions and prerequisites, you may refer to the college catalog.

Yes.  Courses from which you have withdrawn will appear in the Insufficient block on your audit.

Not necessarily. If you have applied to graduate, your registrar will perform a preliminary audit of your coursework prior to the add/drop period of your final semester and a final audit after all final grades have been submitted to determine if you are eligible to graduate. Missing requirements will be communicated to you by your academic advisor.

Using the “What If”

The “What If” function allows you to hypothetically change your major.  The “What If” audit will show you what coursework is required for the new program, what courses you have taken that satisfy requirements, and what courses are still left for you to take.

No. The “What If” function is for informational purposes only.

No. “What If” plans are not saved in Degree Works. You would need to run a new “What If” scenario next time you log in to see it again.  However, you can select “View as pdf” and save and print it from that screen.


The Term Calculator will show you your estimated cumulative GPA after you fill in hypothetical grade information. By entering your credits remaining, total credits required and your desired GPA in the table, Degree Works will indicate what you need for grades to achieve your desired GPA.

The Semester Calculator will show you your estimated semester GPA.   Courses you are registered in with their respective credits will automatically be filled.  By entering the anticipated grade, Degree Works will calculate your GPA for that semester.
