Degree Works is a web-based planning tool to help undergraduate students, advisors, and the Registrar’s Office monitor a student's progress toward degree completion and evaluate graduation eligibility.
The degree audit combines Mills College degree requirements, completed and in-progress course work, and an easy-to-read worksheet to display how course work counts toward specific degree requirements and what requirements still need to be completed.
You are encouraged to use the degree audit as a guide when planning your progress toward the completion of your program's specific degree requirements. This audit is not an official academic transcript, and it is not official notification of completion of degree or certificate requirements.
