New program gives Auburn University students a clearer picture of degree requirements, progress toward graduation

AUBURN UNIVERSITY – Auburn University is implementing Auburn DegreeWorks, a software program designed to help students and their advisers monitor progress toward graduation.

The program provides a comprehensive set of web-based academic advising, degree audit and course planning tools for students and their advisers in determining curriculum requirements.

It provides information on current curriculum, recommendations, academic standing, a GPA calculator and a list of conditions the student must meet for graduation.

Exceptions and class substitutions can also be documented in the program.
