Marshall launches DegreeWorks

Nov. 03, 2012 @ 11:25 PM

HUNTINGTON -- Marshall University has launched DegreeWorks, a degree-auditing and tracking tool for both faculty and students.

DegreeWorks is used to track students' academic achievement based on the requirements for his or her selected major as determined by the Marshall course catalog.

Using DegreeWorks, students and faculty can view the students' academic progress toward a degree, review the requirements already completed, and use the provided information to plan out the remaining requirements to complete a degree.

Corley Dennison, associate vice president for academic affairs and dean of undergraduate studies, said the program is easy to use and will assist students with class registration.

"DegreeWorks allows students up to the minute tracking on the path to graduation," Dennison said. "With a couple of mouse clicks, students will see the courses they've taken and the classes they need to take."

DegreeWorks provides students with information that helps them focus on academic goals and how to achieve them. The program also includes a feature to help students who are considering changing majors.

To learn more about DegreeWorks, visit www.marshall.edu/degreeworks or contact the Student Resource Center.

Students can log in to DegreeWorks and begin using its reporting and auditing capabilities. To do so, students should log in to myMU, and click on the DegreeWorks link on the Student Information tab.
