Degree Works to roll out on Sept. 6

The Registrar’s Office at Missouri Southern will roll out the Degree Works audit system on Wednesday, Sept. 6.

Similar to the current CAPP degree audit, Degree Works provides students and advisors with an organized degree plan evaluation. It is aimed at helping students progress through their degree plan efficiently.

Degree Works will eventually replace the existing CAPP degree audit. MSSU will be using Degree Works and CAPP simultaneously until older catalogs can be programmed into the new system (timeline TBA). The student’s catalog year will determine if they will use Degree Works or CAPP for their audit; students who are under the 2016-17 catalog and forward will use Degree Works.  When Degree Works goes live on Sept. 6, the 2016-17 catalog will be disabled in CAPP.

On Sept. 6, a link to Degree Works titled “Degree Evaluation (Degree Works)” will be located in LioNet under Student Quick Links. The Degree Works link may also be accessed in LioNet under the Faculty tab > Faculty Menu > Student Information Menu > Degree Evaluation (Degree Works).

Frequently asked questions and a step-by-step how-to document with screenshots will be available soon on the Office of the Registrar’s website –http://www.mssu.edu/student-affairs/registrar/. On the menu on the left side of the page, click “Degree Audit.”

Faculty, advisors and staff are invited to attend a hands-on training session where they will interpret the degree audit, enter a note on a student’s audit and more.

Sessions are scheduled for the following times:

  • Thursday, Sept. 7: 1-2 p.m., Reynolds 205
  • Monday, Sept. 11: 10-11 a.m., Plaster 320
