Features

Course Information
Students and advisors are able click on a course still needed on the worksheet and a window will open listing the course description, prerequisites, and sections of that course that are being offered in an upcoming term. The student is able to see the CRN for each section, open seats in real-time, and the days and times the course is being offered.

What If
The What If feature allows students to see how changing their major or minor will impact their progress to degree completion.

GPA Calculators
Degree Works offers three different GPA calculators: Graduation, Term, and Advice (link to instructions in box). The calculators help students set realistic goals at the beginning of the  term, or provide a path for achieving honors, avoiding probation, or meeting personal academic goals.

MYDEGREE FAQ'S

What is MyDegree and how do I use it?
The MyDegree functionality provides you with a summary of the classes you have taken, and the remaining classes you need to complete in order to fulfill your degree requirements.  You can also use MyDegree to determine how well the classes you have taken so far stack up towards an alternate major.  MyDegree is not the official record of the University - you will need to order an official transcript for that purpose. 

How do I access MyDegree?
To access MyDegree, log into MyAccess, select the Student tab, then select MyDegree, where you will find an audit of your degree requirements. MyDegree shows overall credit and course requirements for graduation, core requirements, and (if your major is declared) major requirements.

What should I do if I don't see all my credits posted in MyDegree?
If you are missing credits from a Georgetown-sponsored study abroad program, first check with the Office of International Programs to ensure that your transcript has been received from the host institution.  If the transcript was received over a month ago and the credits are still not posted, please contact your dean. If you are missing credits from summer school courses taken elsewhere and the courses were pre-approved by your Dean's Office, it is likely the case that Georgetown has not yet received a transcript from the host institution.  Please arrange to have a transcript sent to your dean.  If you believe that a transcript has been sent, please contact your dean. 

Why aren't some of my courses counting towards my major, minor, or certificate? 
Some courses require a minimum grade to be applied to a requirement or are not allowed to apply if they are taken as Pass/Fail or Audited. Georgetown College students must secure departmental approval of courses taken outside the department toward majors, minors and certificates on an Evaluation of Transfer Credit Form.  Students should contact their Dean's or Advisor's Office for clarification on why a course may not be counting.
