Degree Works is a web-based degree audit tool that helps students and advisers monitor progress toward degree completion. It produces a report that outlines the components and requirements for a student’s degree program and tracks the student’s progress in completing those requirements.

The report is not intended to replace regular contact with academic/faculty advisers, but provides accurate information to assist students and advisers in making appropriate academic choices based on information in Banner, the university’s student information system.

All degree requirements are based on the official curriculum as approved by the university-level curriculum committees and as published in the effective VCU Bulletin of record. While Degree Works is a self-service tool for students and advisers, it is the official means used to confirm that students have completed requirements for graduation.
