Degree Works is a web-based degree audit application and academic advisement tool that provides a clear and convenient method for students and advisors to track degree progress. It is intended to assist students in reaching their academic goals and achieving a better understanding of degree requirements. Degree Works provides students with access to their unofficial degree audit which lists information regarding their current program(s) of study including institutional requirements, general education requirements, major requirements (with concentration, cognate or track, if applicable) and minor requirements. Students and their advisors have access to the student's degree audit via MyCharleston. The link for Degree Works is found under the Academic Services tab. For more information about Degree Works, please visit the Degree Works: Your Degree Audit Tool web page.
Exceptions to catalog degree requirements (if applicable) must be sent from the department to the Office of the Registrar. Exceptions must be on file in the Office of the Registrar before they will be added to and reflected in the degree audit. Proper documentation must be received in a timely manner to avoid delays in clearing students for graduation. Please try to have any applicable exceptions sent to our office before the application deadline (Oct. 1 for fall; Feb. 1 for spring).
Students must report any problems or discrepancies with their degree audit to the Graduation Area of the Office of the Registrar, and to their advisor. Students are responsible for printing a copy/screenshot of the audit containing the problem in question and making it available to the Registrar's Office for review. Degree Works also has a PDF option which will allow you to send your degree audit via an e-mail attachment if needed. Students who have more than one major and are having a problem viewing or printing one of the major audits are encouraged to come to the Office of the Registrar for assistance.
Please note: Students and their advisors may use this on-line tool to view a student's progress toward meeting graduation requirements, but it is not an official degree audit. Official final degree audits are only performed by the Office of the Registrar at the time a student applies for graduation.
