The first phase of the Degree Works implementation, scribing, is well underway. Scribing is the process of coding degree information and program requirements into the system. We are making great progress scribing the colleges of Arts and Sciences, Aviation and Education. In fact, Arts and Sciences is almost done.
Testing and validation is the next step. This will be done in coordination with the college and department advisors. It involves reviewing multiple students in Degree Works to determine if requirements have been accurately interpreted and to verify that Degree Works is correctly processing those requirements.
Did you know…
Degree Works has a “look ahead” feature that allows user to enter a list of classes and see where they might apply on the degree audit. It is a great tool to use as part of the registration process; students can see how a course will be used before they actually register for it.
There is a lot more to see! Visit some of our friends at WMU to learn about academics, costs of attendance, and campus life.
