This web-based system allows students and advisors to monitor progress towards degree completion, track petitions and advising notes, and use the "What If" and "Look Ahead" features.

Questions or discrepancies regarding DegreeWorks should be addressed to either your advisor, or to the Admissions/Records Office, (907) 262-0381.
