Students create an educational plan in Degree Works, found on MyPortal. During orientation, new students learn how to create an abbreviated educational plan for their first one or two quarters. Students must then develop a comprehensive educational plan for three quarters or more. Both orientation and an educational plan are required steps in obtaining priority enrollment.
Students can also perform a degree audit in the Degree Works app on MyPortal, to
see what courses they have completed and which requirements remain to be completed in order to finish their degree or certificate. Degree Works will indicate what percentage of their degree has been completed. This information may be used by the Financial Aid office to determine if students are on track to complete their degree and maintain their financial aid eligibility. Degree Works' educational plan function allows students or counselors to create a multi-quarter plan for registration, including their degree requirements.
Students who are considering a change of major can run “what if ” scenarios to compare their progress in other majors. A “change major” function is available in MyPortal if students find they are making better progress in a different major or program or wish to pursue a different area of study. Students can also change their educational goal in MyPortal.
