Degree Works™ has replaced the PipelineMT Degree Evaluation menu option.
Degree Works™ provides 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 enables academic advisors to provide “real time” advice and counsel to students. Degree Works™ also allows advisors and students to create interactive scenarios for degree completion.
The first phase of the project consisted of the scribing step. 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.
Records Office staff; graduation coordinators from each of MTSU’s colleges; staff and graduation analysts from Graduate Studies, and a few select advisors tested the system, validated the rules, and conducted training.
