Degree Works™ is a new product that will replace the PipelineMT Degree Evaluation menu option.
Degree Works™ will provide MTSU with a comprehensive set of web-based academic advising, degree audit, and transfer articulation tools to enhance advising, better inform students about degree planning, and reduce time to degree. This system will enable academic advisors to provide “real time” advice and counsel to students. Degree Works™ will also allow advisors and students to create interactive scenarios for degree completion.
The first phase of the project, which consisted of the scribing step, has been mostly completed. Scribing is building the myriad rules that sit in the background of the Degree Works™ system controlling and evaluating what courses are and are not acceptable for the completion of each MTSU degree program.
Currently, Records Office staff; graduation coordinators from each of MTSU’s colleges; staff and graduation analysts from Graduate Studies, and a few select advisors are testing the system, validating the rules, and training.
Projected “go live” is spring 2018.
