Degree Works is a web-based education plan and degree audit system to guide students in their education journey. This tool helps students and counselors create an education plan and monitor students' progress toward program completion. 

Degree Works is not a substitution for consultation with a counselor. It is important for students to still meet with a counselor for educational planning and career exploration.
