Degree Works

Introduction to Degree Works


Degree Works is an online degree evaluation guide available to all degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students who have been admitted to MSSU since 2010. Former students and graduates who left MSSU prior to 2010 will be able to access a Degree Works audit if they return to MSSU as degree-seeking students.    

Degree Works is often referred to simply as degree audit or degree evaluation. It is programmed from corresponding published catalog requirements of majors, certificates, and minors. It provides a listing of completed, in-progress, future coursework, and other major, minor, certificate degree requirements. The audit includes completed coursework that may not fulfill any requirements for the declared major or minor. The audit is organized in sections, referred to as cards, with each card outlining specific requirements for fulfilling degree requirements and other supplementary information. 

The audit should be used concurrently with the official catalog and consultation with your departmental advisor to ensure all degree requirements are met.

Degree Works is used as the primary graduation checklist tool tracking and displaying the degree requirement completion. However, there may be some requirements that are not able to be documented on the audit therefore, the Office of the Registrar verifies and confirms degree completion.  

Degree Works is mobile friendly and readily accessible on smart phones and tablets. 

How current is the audit?

The audit is refreshed overnight, therefore it lags a day with changes and additions applied to the audit.
