My Degree: Launch Prep Training

My Degree (Degree Works) is an online advising tool that allows both students and advisers to track students’ progress towards completing a degree.


All participants must have completed FERPA training within the last two years to take this course; if you do not have a valid FERPA training, you will not be able to access the system during the training and will be asked to leave to protect the integrity of student data.

Course Description

This training is intended for staff and faculty in an advising role who plan on using My Degree to advise students and would like to solidify knowledge garnered from previous trainings, presentations, and experiences with the system. Attendees are expected to leave training with an understanding of:

  • the differences between the various types of audits;
  • creating five different types of exceptions in a test environment;
  • how to use the “What If” function to project a student to different major, minor, and catalog combinations;

Completion of this training will refresh concepts and skills built in the My Degree: Onboarding, Exceptions, and Plans course.

This course is not intended for participants who have not completed the onboarding course.
