Are my grades visible in Degree Works?

Can I see a list of all of the classes I’ve taken?
Yes. On the audit tab, click on the Academic History link at the top of the page.
What do I do if I believe my academic information is incorrect?
You should consult your academic advisor for a review of your audit. Any exception to major, minor, or concentration requirements should be discussed with your major/minor advisor or academic department personnel.
Why isn’t my information up-to-date?
There could be several reasons. One is that Degree Works may not have refreshed since a change was made (the information is refreshed nightly). Second, there could be some paperwork that needs to be completed. For example, if you have completed transfer courses, it is possible that the college has not received an official transcript or the coursework is pending departmental review. Check with Registrar's Office if your transcript or audit does not reflect transfer work you have completed.
If I think my audit is incorrect, whom do I contact?
Your academic advisor is your primary point of contact. If it is determined that your audit is incorrect, the advisor will contact the Registrar's Office for assistance.
Where can I find my major GPA?
Your major GPA is a calculated GPA based on coursework used to fulfill major requirements. This GPA will appear within the major requirements section of your audit.
How do I know what classes I need to take?
Your audit will outline for you courses still needed to meet degree, major, minor, and/or concentration requirements within each specific block. You may then use this information to discuss your plan with your academic advisor.
Why isn’t my transfer work meeting a requirement?
There could be several reasons, such as the course did not meet either the minimum number of credits and/or minimum grade requirement for use in your program of study. Or, it does not fill any requirement, or this course is simply not needed. See more information on transfer credits.
If I withdraw from a class, will that be reflected in my audit?
Courses from which you have withdrawn will appear in the Insufficient Courses section towards the end of the audit.
My advisor told me that a course I took would be substituted for a requirement. Why doesn’t this information appear in my audit?
You should contact your advisor to resolve any substitution issue. Any waivers, substitutions, or exceptions for major, minor or concentration requirements must be communicated to the Registrar's Office by the appropriate department chair.
