Below is an overview of the new DegreeWorks Dashboard
Students must complete placement exams to determine if they need first -year foundations. Click here for more information about foundations requirements: https://www.wpunj.edu/firstyearfoundations/
The next several blocks show UCC requirements. Please note that each requirement includes hyperlinks with the most current semester course options for that area. If a student has an AA or AS degree they should have the attribute in the top block and the only UCC that should appear is one upper level writing intensive. Some majors but not all also include a prerequisite block towards the top of the worksheet.
Each requirement includes hyperlinks.

View the block or blocks for majors and if applicable minors. Notice courses and elective requirements are also hyperlinked to current semester options. Remember, courses may apply to several requirement areas within the worksheet but each course is only counted once towards the total overall credit.
The worksheet displays free-elective courses that apply to the overall credit total. You can also view any courses that do not apply to the degree in the grades not applicable toward degree section.
Keep in mind that in-progress courses are calculated into the total overall credit in DegreeWorks.
Both advisement notes and review of application for graduation notes are viewable by the advisor and student at the bottom of the worksheet.
