New online program will allow students to track their degree progress

by -

Students of Texas A&M University -Kingsville can now track their degree audit with a new online program called DegreeWorks.

DegreeWorks is a program introduced by Dr. Steven Tallant, AMK President, and will be available for student use starting October 17th.

This program, which students will be able to access through their Blue & Gold Connection, will show the student how far along they are into reaching their major.

Though it may save a trip to the advisor, DegreeWorks is not replacing advisors. In fact, it is meant to supplement the advisor.

“You still have to see your advisor, but you can look at DegreeWorks yourself anytime. Your advisor will use it with you,” said Wendy McAda, the Systems Analyst at AMK.

It will also have a GPA calculator and a planner to help students decide when they want to take the classes they need to take.

“You can plan out your own college career with the planner in DegreeWorks,” said McAda.

DegreeWorks is only for undergraduate students as of now, but it may be used for post graduate degrees soon as well.

“I don’t think students are going to have a hard time with it. It’s user friendly,” said McAda.
