WHAT IS DEGREE WORKS?
Degree Works is a web-based advising and degree planning tool available through Gulfline. The system is designed to assist students, advisors and designated faculty and staff in monitoring the degree progress of students. Degree Works organizes a student’s course work in an easy to read report (degree audit) summarizing completed and missing requirements for a degree, as defined in the Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) catalog.
Degree Works can be used by undergraduate students who entered in the fall of 2009 or later. If a student’s catalog term is prior to fall 2009, a message will appear indicating a What-If degree audit should be run in Degree Works.
The Degree Works audit is UNOFFICIAL and does not take the place of regular academic advising. Students should discuss their progress toward degree completion with their advisor after reviewing their degree audit.
Students and advisors can use this system to track progress toward a degree or perform a “What-If” analysis prior to a student declaring a major or making a change to a major, minor and/or concentration offered at FGCU. Advisors can also use this system to create a semester by semester plan to graduation for a student.
