Every degree program has its own requirements and requisite courses of study. And students often need a helping hand in navigating them to ensure they take the right classes to graduate on time.
With EMPOWER’s powerful Degree Audit and Plan of Study module, students can work effectively with their advisors to track, explore and manage their academic progress, all in real-time.
Degree Audit helps keep track of majors, minors, concentrations, specializations and programs; degrees and certifications; course and general education requirements; and GPA. It tracks in-progress, complete, transfer, waiver and substitute credits. Students with Web Portal access can request their current degree status at any time. And our unique “What If?” tool can help advisors and students see the potential effects of their academic decisions.
The Plan of Study sub-module is a powerful advisor tool offering a term-by-term plan designed to help students graduate on time. Integrated with the Degree Audit module, it works to show students which courses to take, how many they need, and when they need to take them to meet their needs.
We’ve eliminated the need for third party degree audit systems: There’s no lag-time, no secondary database. Just a single, accurate source of student data, giving students and advisors the ability to instantly monitor student status. For students, this means peace of mind as they understand where they are and where they need to go. For advisors and academic departments, this means up-to-the-minute analysis and a single source for accurate program details. And for the registrar, it means automated graduation tasks and accurate, immediate graduation data.
