How to Read a Degree Works Audit Report

Degree Works (DW)

Degree Works is a comprehensive degree audit tool that helps students and their advisors keep track of bachelor's degree requirements. Upon your admission to SUNY Plattsburgh, all students have online access to their first Degree Works Audit Report. As you progress in your SUNY Plattsburgh education, your DW report is continuously updated to reflect any change to your academic record (e.g., grades earned, requirements fulfilled, changes in your major/minor).

The Degree Works Audit Report includes important information, such as:

  • Your basic academic information (e.g., name, major, advisor's name, BannerID number);
  • Placement and proficiency exam results;
  • Overall "College degree requirements" (e.g., your cumulative GPA, major GPA, number of credits earned);
  • Your "major requirements;"
  • Your "General Education requirements;"
  • All courses awarded as transfer/AP credit from prior institutions (if any);
  • Links to course descriptions and future offerings of courses; and
  • An interactive "what if" feature that allows you to imagine yourself in different major/minor combinations.

It is important that you review your DW report each semester. Though you will have assistance from your academic advisor, it is ultimately your responsibility to ensure you have completed all requirements for your degree.
