Summer II Information

Summer I ends Friday. Grades are due next Tuesday, August 21 at noon. Grades will be available to students as soon as we complete processing, which should will be sometime in the late afternoon on August 21.

Degree Works Update

The Degree Works implementation is progressing on schedule.  The program requirements for the College of Aviation have been completed and they are now working to validate the data.  We are on track to roll Degree Works out to incoming students next summer at orientation.

Did you know…

Degree Works has a notes feature that allows users to document information collected during advising appointments and record advice given to a student?  Pre-defined notes can be set up or information can be entered in manually.  The creator of the note and the day and time the note was entered will be recorded automatically in the system.   Notes can be used for internal use only or they can be made available to the student.    Anyone with access to the notes can view the information in Degree Works and the notes will follow the student even if they change their major.
