What is Degree Works?
Degree Works is a web-based tool designed to help students and advisers monitor progress toward degree completion. Degree Works looks at a student’s coursework in terms of Franklin & Marshall’s catalog requirements to produce an easy-to-read audit. Degree Works also allows students and their advisers to plan for future coursework and evaluate possible major/minor changes.
· Notes made by advisers in Degree Works are available to any additional or future advisers for that student.
· GPA calculators allow students to determine what level of performance they need to achieve in order to reach their desired GPA.
How is Degree Works different from our previous degree audit program?
First, Degree Works is more than just a degree audit program. It also allows advisers and students to create course plans for several semesters in advance, which can in turn assist academic departments with curricular planning.
Apart from the visual differences, it is important to note that Degree Works audits are dynamic, which means your degree audit will not look the same each time you view it. Instead of creating an initial audit and adding to it as requirements are completed, Degree Works evaluates all courses against all degree requirements and creates a brand-new audit each time, ensuring that it uses the best course to complete each requirement.
