Academic Advising

DegreeWorks Planner

The DegreeWorks Planner is a tool within DegreeWorks that students and advisors can use to develop the student’s individualized degree plan.

What is DegreeWorks Planner?

The DegreeWorks Planner serves as the home of the advised course schedule. Advisors have previously used the DegreeWorks “notes” function to record the advised course schedule.  While the “notes” feature is still active and will continue to be used during orientation sessions, the DegreeWorks Planner is a tool that can not only record the advised course schedule, but it can also further student collaboration in degree planning and assist with course forecasting.

Used as a guide for the first training of academic advisors, this script can aid future colleges/departments with their training. View sample script [pdf].

The DegreeWorks Planner Subcommittee collected a series of questions that serve as conversation starters for college implementation of the Planner. View workflow questions [pdf].

DegreeWorks Planner Committee Minutes

The University Advisors Network tasked a special subcommittee to focus the university's efforts in rolling out the DegreeWorks Planner to the campus. Minutes of each subcommittee meeting can be found on the UAN's website.
