UAF students researching out in the field


Picture of a GPS location system that says, "DegreeWorks... Your GPS to graduation."

Your GPS to graduation success!

Just as a Global Positioning System will tell you exactly where you are every step of the way, DegreeWorks is your Graduation Planning System (GPS) that tells how far you've come, and how far you need to go, in order to reach your graduation goals. Thus, DegreeWorks is your GPS to graduation success!
DegreeWorks is an easy to use web-based degree audit and academic advising tool that allows you to:
  • Run your own degree audit
  • View your progress toward earning your diploma
  • See how your current courses apply to your graduation requirements
  • Determine how changing your major will affect your graduation date
  • Track progress of petitions

Access DegreeWorks - Once logged in to UAOnline, select 'DegreeWorks/Electronic Degree Audit - UAF' under the Student Services and Account Information tab. Get more detailed directions.

Thinking of changing your major? Use the "What if" option- DegreeWorks allows you to determine which classes you have taken that can count towards a different degree program of your choosing. By using the “What If” option, DegreeWorks will generate a new audit for you. This new audit will show you how close you are to graduation if you were to switch programs. Get more detailed directions on how to use the "What If" option (PDF). Feel free to play with it as much as you like, as it will not interfere with you current audit.
