Degree Works

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.

How to Access Degree Works as a Student

How to Run a "What If" Audit

If you are thinking about changing your major (and many students do), you can use Degree Works to run a theoretical degree audit. This will help you see how the classes you've already taken can or cannot be applied to a different major.

1. Login to the Mills Resource Portal, find the Featured Services section, and click on Degree Works Dashboard.

2. Click on What If in the left navigation bar.

3. Select the degree type. Select the major you are considering switching to. Select the academic year for the term (fall or spring) in which you were admitted.

4. Click the Process What If button.
