What is Degree Works?

Degree Works is a web-based, degree audit review program that allows credit students to monitor progress toward degree completion. Features such as What-If, Look Ahead, and GPA Calculator will help students plan and set goals for graduation. Degree Works is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, through OwlNet. It will be especially useful when students plan for upcoming semesters and to see progress after grades are posted.

The Degree Audit allows students to:

  • view degree program requirements
  • see how coursework and any transfer credit they have been awarded meets program requirements
  • track progress toward earning an Associate degree

It will also allow students to look ahead and consider options by:

  • seeing how courses they are considering for next semester fit into their degree plan
  • exploring and considering other HCC academic majors
  • estimating their overall GPA based on anticipated or actual end-of-semester course grades

  3. Click on the Degree Works icon or link to view audit "worksheet" for student's declared academic program
