The Auburn DegreeWorks audit “reads” all courses completed or accepted as transfer credits at Auburn and shows how those courses have been applied toward your chosen degree and program according to the catalog requirements for the year in which you entered Auburn. The report can be viewed online or printed out to be used as a snapshot of where you stand relative to graduation requirements.
YES! Absolutely — Auburn DegreeWorks does not take the place of your Graduate Program Officer or Graduate School advisor. You should always review your degree progress report prior to meeting with your GPO or Graduate School advisor, preparing any questions you may have regarding your requirements. They will use the Auburn DegreeWorks report in the process of advising you about your program.
Try to submit your Planner by your second semester so you can use the auditing features of DegreeWorks to monitor your progress. Follow the instructions here.
Your committee has to approve your Planner, so committee selection comes first. You can submit your Planner as late as the semester before graduation, but you miss out on some of the features of DegreeWorks. Don’t forget and let the deadline pass, else your graduation will be delayed.
Click Save As on your current Planner and give it a new name. Make the necessary edits. Send it through the same approval process as the first time, following the instructions here.
No, DegreeWorks has no interaction with your committee. To make committee updates, get approval from all parties affected, then email the changes to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your Graduate Advisors will verify and make the necessary updates in Banner.
Put on your Planner all courses required by your program. DegreeWorks shows you the requirements on the same page. For transfer work, start the course with a dash and make sure it contains at least one space so DegreeWorks won’t try to match it to an Auburn University course (examples: -AB 12345, -12 444). Use the Notes section for clarification. You do not have to list courses that don’t count toward your requirements, such as ESL; however, no harm is done by listing them. You can break up your thesis/dissertation hours over several terms, or you can list them on one entry. If you enter thesis/dissertation hours in more than one term, ignore the alert that tells you a class has been used more than once.
In order to keep the dropdown list manageable, DegreeWorks configuration only allows changes to eight (8) terms in the past. The auditing feature does not attempt to match your courses to the terms you listed in your Planner. Any course may be listed in any term, whether past, current, or future. You may use the Notes textbox to record any information you feel is needed to properly describe your Planner details.
You should not change the Academic Year. DegreeWorks uses this value to determine which course catalog to use to enforce your audit. If you change it, a system administrator will have to change it back, and this may delay the approval of your Planner.
Course substitutions are possible. Work with your committee to determine appropriate substitutions, and email the changes to email@example.com. With approval from your major professor and the Dean of the Graduate School, we will force a match to the substitute courses.
No. Registration will continue to be accessed through AU Access during scheduled registration dates and time tickets.
Your GPA is calculated based on coursework used to fulfill program requirements. This GPA will appear within the program block requirements of your audit. Additionally, depending upon your college, the program GPA may also include courses that potentially could have been used within the program block but were not needed to fulfill specific requirements.
No. The Auburn DegreeWorks Audit is an unofficial advisement tool. It is not an Academic Transcript.
