Degree Check

What is Degree Check?

Degree Check is a software program designed to help you track your progress to graduation. Once you choose a program of study, Degree Check will tell you exactly which courses you need to take in order to attain your degree or certificate. This helps you know exactly where you stand academically and what you still need to do in order to achieve your goals.

How can I use Degree Check?

The video below covers how to review your progress towards your current program. This is helpful if you have questions such as:

  • What is my declared program?
  • What classes do I need?
  • Do my classes count towards my declared program?

Step-by-step video on how to use Degree Check

Degree Check also has a specific feature called What If. The What If feature is useful for research and exploration. If you have questions like…

  • What if I register for other classes. Do those classes count towards my program?
  • What if I changed programs? How does my history align with a different program’s requirements?

…the What If feature can be useful to explore hypothetically without actually changing anything about your declared program or registration. Watch this video for more details!
