Degree Works

What is Degree Works?

Degree Works is a web-based degree audit tool designed to help students and advisors monitor progress toward graduation. Advisors should use this tool to help keep their students on track to graduate on time, making sure the courses their students take are appropriate and count towards their degree.

All students with a catalog term of Fall 2016 to present should use Degree Works. Students with a catalog term prior to Fall 2016 should continue to use the existing CAPP degree evaluation.

How does Degree Works work?

Degree Works looks at the requirements for a program of study as well as the coursework completed to create an easy-to-read degree audit. The requirements for programs of study as determined by The Citadel catalog are outlined in the audit blocks. Any classes students have taken or are currently registered for are used to fill the block requirements. Completed classes are indicated by a checkmark while in-progress courses are indicated by a blue box with a wavy line inside. Any requirements still remaining will have an open red box beside them. Degree Works can also be used to help students and advisors outline a plan for classes students should take in the future.

What if I think there is an error on an audit?

If you think you have come across an error within a Degree Works audit, please email with complete details of the error and what you believe is the correction, or screen shot the error within the audit and explanation.

Note: Degree Works is designed to aid and facilitate academic advising, but is not intended to replace face-to-face advising sessions. Degree Works is neither an official academic transcript nor an official notification of completion of degree requirements.


Degree Works is a web-based degree audit application and academic advisement tool that provides a clear method for students and advisors to monitor progress toward degree completion starting with the Fall 2016 catalog.  The audit provides information regarding students' current program(s) of study including general education requirements, major requirements (with concentration if applicable), minor requirements, and institutional requirements.
