Degree Works Update

The Degree Works project is moving forward on schedule.   The program requirements have been built for Arts and Sciences, Aviation, Business and Education.   The information is currently being reviewed by the college and faculty advisors to validate the data.  Our target is to have the coding and validation completed for all colleges by March 1 and roll Degree Works out to students with a 2011 or 2012 catalog year in May 2013.

Did you know…

In Degree Works students can click on a course still needed in their audit and view the sections of that course that are being offered in upcoming semesters. Students will be able to see the CRN number, open seats, and the days and times the course is being offered.   The information displayed will reflect real time data pulled from Banner.
