What is a Degree Evaluation?

The degree evaluation system is a web-based tool designed to provide students with a view of their progress toward degree and to serve as an advising tool, to determine which classes still need to be taken to complete degree requirements. A “what-if” component is also available, which allows students to assess the impact of a change in major by applying current courses toward a new degree plan.

  • If you want to print either evaluation page, use the print button on the top toolbar or select File->Print from the menu on your browser.

If you have questions about your evaluation or you believe there are classes that should count as a specified requirement but do not appear, please contact your advisor.
