Degree Works has upgraded their student planning feature in an effort to enhance the student advising experience. The Registrar’s Office is excited to announce that this new Student Educational Planner (SEP), located on the Plans tab in Degree Works, is now available. The new Plans tab will replace the existing Planner tab. Student’s plans from the previous Planner tab will automatically be converted and be available on the New Plans tab.

Just like the Planner Tab, Degree Works Plans are used to help advisors and students work together to plan each term of coursework as to ensure student success. By developing a plan, students will have a clear path of coursework needed in sequential order. Using their plan, a student can generate an audit to evaluate their intended degree progress.

Here are some advancements:
· Modern user interface
· Tracking Feature that shows when students are on or off track
· Ability to flag requirements as critical
· Enhanced note capabilities
· Plans are not lost when a student changes their program of study

The Registrar’s Office would like to thank Information Technology for their partnership and hard work in supporting this project and its launch! I would also like to thank Julie Dahl, Franklin Czwazka, and Tom Buchheit from the RO for their leadership and contributions to this project.

Documentation and user guides are available in the Office of the Registrar channels on the Help and Training Tab within MyCharleston. Students should direct questions about the content of their plans to their advisor. Questions about plan functionality can be sent to Degreeworks@cofc.edu.

Degree Works and Chrome Update 44

By Mary Bergstrom
Posted on 29 July 2015 | 9:15 am

7/28/15:  Recently, the Google Chrome browser updated to version 44.  There have been reports of Degree Works Audits showing a blank screen where a degree audit report normally displays. We have determined that it worked properly through Chrome version 43, so once users move to version 44 the blank screen problem is consistently occurring. In addition to the Audits tab, the Notes and Petitions are not working properly. They also display blank screens.

The vendor is working to identify the root cause and aim to resolve this issue as soon as possible.  Chrome 43 still works as do all other supported browsers.

We will keep you posted.
