It takes a lot of planning to map out an academic career. But when You’re working with information in several different media, the process can be time-consuming and frustrating. However, the future is promising: AU has launched DegreeWorks, ?a comprehensive academic advising and degree audit solution? that communicates directly with AU’s internal student information system and streamlines program planning.
DegreeWorks helps students plan their educational futures by ?automatically [retrieving] a student’s academic record . . . and [organizing] it into an educational plan on the web, identifying program requirements, courses completed and courses still needed to complete a degree.?
Students are also able to ?explore ?What if? scenarios to measure the effects of changing programs or adding majors or minors? and check GPAs based on projected future course grades.
It is user friendly, and AU has advisors available for students who need help navigating the system.
