How to Print a Degree Evaluation

  • Select the "Academics" tab
  • Under the "Quick Links" section click the "DegreeWorks" link
  • The system will automatically generate the Degree Audit.  If the curriculum information displayed is not the major/program that you are pursuing, you have the option to generate a “What-If” analysis.  You must also complete a Change of Major/Program form in the Office of Admissions.
  • DegreeWorks begins with the 2011-2012 catalog year; therefore, if your catalog year is older, you will get a message that says “An audit for your catalog year is not available through DegreeWorks.  You can use the “What-If” and GPA Calculator functionalities of this system to generate a “What-If” analysis or you may contact the Advising Center at (615)230-3702 to obtain an audit of your current degree completion status.
  •  The final step is to PRINT! Select the "Print" tab at the top.
