- Identify courses needed to complete their degree
- View their grades and GPAs

What is Degree Works Transfer Equivalency?
The Degree Works Transfer Equivalency module gives prospective students the ability to obtain an unofficial “what-if” degree audit when considering their transfer of courses to another institution.
This works by the student self-reporting the courses, credit hours, and grades earned from other institutions and learning which of their credits will transfer. The module provides a preliminary, unofficial assessment, then directs students to speak to a transfer evaluator for official transfer and articulation results.
What is the benefit of Transfer Equivalency?
Seeing how coursework will transfer helps students customize an educational pathway that fits their needs and budget.
