DegreeWorks What-If FAQ

What is the What-If feature?

The What If function allows you to hypothetically change your major, minor, or concentration. The What If audit will show you what coursework is required for the new major, minor, or concentration, what courses you have taken that satisfy requirements, and what courses are still left for you to take.

If I use the What If feature does this mean that I have changed my major?

No. The What If function is for information purposes only. You will see the header What If Audit displayed at the top of the audit whenever an audit is run on a What If scenario.

Can my advisor see my What If scenario?

Since What If scenarios are not stored on DegreeWorks, your advisor can only see your results if you work through a What If procedure together.

Can I view multiple What If scenarios on the same screen?

Yes. DegreeWorks will allow you to select more than one major at a time, or to select multiple major(s), minor(s) and concentration(s).

Can I save a What If scenario?

No. What If plans are not saved on DegreeWorks. You would need to run a new What If scenario next time you log in to see it again.

Can I print a What If scenario?

Yes. If you want to share it with your advisor at a later date, you should print your What If scenario.

If I like what I see in a What If scenario, how do I initiate the changes?

To officially change your major/minor/concentration, you can come to the Office of the Registrar, or go to our website, to obtain a Change of Major/Minor/Advisor form. Once you have filled it out and signed by your advisor, return it to the Office of the Registrar for processing.
