What is DegreeWorks?
DegreeWorks is a web-based tool to help students and advisors monitor student progress toward completion of a degree or certificate. DegreeWorks shows the degree requirements in the MVCC Catalog and the coursework the student has completed to produce an easy-to-read audit worksheet. The audit is divided into blocks of degree requirements. Checkboxes indicate which requirements have been met.
Who can use DegreeWorks?
All students who matriculated at Mohawk Valley Community College after Fall 2009 and are using the 2009-2010 or a later catalog can use DegreeWorks to check their progress toward degree completion. Registered students who are continuing in a major from before Fall 2009 can still use DegreeWorks to check their record against current catalog requirements by using the “What If” feature. (If this is the case, please be sure to check with an advisor about requirements that are specific to the catalog year in which you matriculated.) Non-matriculated students currently taking courses for credit will be able to look at major requirements by using the “What If” feature.
What is the “What If” feature?
“What if” is an option on the Audit that allows students to look at how the courses they have taken would apply toward majors other than the one they currently are in. It does not change your major or your course history; it just allows you to see how your courses would apply if you decided to change your major. It is also used by students who matriculated before 2009 to check their progress against the current catalog requirements.
