Training

My Degree: Onboarding and Creating Exceptions

This training is intended for staff and faculty in an advising role who plan on using My Degree to advise students, input exceptions for degree requirements, and certify the completion of degrees. Training is now offered in a one-on-one format and can be performed in the trainee's office or in the Office of the University Registrar. The training is tailored to the user's specific needs and can include:

  • How to navigate My Degree.
  • The differences between the various types of audits.
  • Creating five different types of exceptions in a test environment.
  • How to use the “What If” function to project a student to different major, minor, and catalog combinations.
  • How to use the "Look Ahead" function to see where the audit would place future coursework.
