The Office of the Registrar has 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 in Spring 2015.
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 major requirements 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 on a student transcript would be used if a different major was selected.
In order to accurately capture degree requirements for Rice's various programs, we have undertaken a comprehensive review of curriculum in order to scribe the requirements into Degree Works. The status of the scribing of the programs is available here.
Student instructions for how to use Degree Works are available here.
Advisor instructions for how to use Degree Works are available for these items:
Information on the faculty who have the ability to apply substitutions, exceptions, and certify that students have met the requirements of their major, minor, and/or certificate program. The full list of Official Certifiers is available here.
