In academic year 2014-2015, the Office of the Registrar rolled out a new electronic degree audit system named Degree Works. Working with Rice's academic departments, Academic Advising, and Administrative Systems, this degree audit program was rolled out to the campus for undergraduates in Spring 2015 and for select graduate programs in Fall 2016.
Degree Works is a web-based, degree-auditing and tracking tool that enables students and advisors to evaluate academic progress towards graduation in accordance to university and academic program requirements as they are outlined in the General Announcements. This tool will allow students to quickly and easily identify which requirements have been satisfied, and which requirements are outstanding.
In addition, Degree Works can be used to perform a "what if" analysis to determine how current coursework and coursework in a student‚Äôs academic history would be used if a different academic program were selected.
Student instructions for how to use Degree Works are available here.
Advisor instructions for how to use Degree Works are available for these items:
