Degree Audit (DegreeWorks)

(Safari is not recommended to view a DegreeWorks audit)

The DegreeWorks audit shows the requirements for your degree and whether or not they are complete. You should view your audit any time you are preparing for registration, advising, or a change in program of study (degree, major or minor). Let us know if you see any omissions or errors, or have any questions by emailing [[w|degreeaudit]] from your W&M student email account. Be sure to include your name, Banner ID, and the error(s) you find, or questions you have.

This tool is set up for undergraduates, and law, business and education graduate students. If you are a graduate student, please check with your school's graduate registrar for more detailed information regarding your program's degree requirements.
