Degree Works transforms student advising

Posted 09/08/15

Student advising at Fitchburg State University is now easier and more effective with the launch of the new software, Degree Works. Click here for a video introduction to the program.

Degree Works is an online degree auditing tool which enables students and their advisors to review and monitor academic progress leading to graduation. It organizes academic coursework into blocks to help easily identify courses and requirements that students have completed and what requirements are still remaining to complete their degree.

The intuitive, easily-navigated tool is part of the university’s effort to help students keep their momentum toward graduation. Degree Works is an advising tool meant to supplement the advice given to students by their academic advisors.

The Degree Works interface allows students to see which courses they have taken that will satisfy their requirements toward their major, minor, or LAS requirements. It also includes a “what if?” tool that enables students to see how far along they would be, if they were to change their major, minor or concentration.

Additional information, along with video tutorials about how to use Degree Works, can be found on the Registrar’s website.

In addition, the Registrar's office offers one-on-one training for anyone who would like to come in to go over their degree evaluation. Each appointment should take no more than 10-15 minutes. Please call 978-665-4196 to make an appointment.
