What is a DegreeWorks? 

DegreeWorks is a web-based tool to help students and advisors monitor progress toward degree completion. DegreeWorks looks at the degree requirements of the Southeast Missouri State University Undergraduate and Graduate BULLETINS and the coursework completed to produce an easy-to-read audit. The audit is divided into block requirements of how courses, taken or proposed, count toward degree requirements. Checkboxes exist within each block to easily outline what courses and requirements are complete or in-progress.  DegreeWorks also allows students and their advisors to plan for future coursework.
