What is Degree Works?

DegreeWorks is a tool available for you to monitor your academic progress towards certificate/degree completion.  It is a comprehensive, easy-to-use, web-based academic advising and degree audit tool that helps you successfully navigate curriculum requirements. 

Counselors will use DegreeWorks to develop your first semester and comprehensive student education plan.  All new students are required to meet with a counselor to determine which courses to take as a first time student.  We want to ensure you get off to a great start!  During your first semester at Hancock, we encourage you to meet with a counselor to develop a comprehensive plan that outlines every course needed for your intended goal.  You are required to schedule a counseling appointment in order to create a comprehensive plan.  

You can also use DegreeWorks to perform a "What If" analysis to determine certificate/degree completion for different programs. 

Degree Works can be accessed through your myHancock account.
