Degree Works

DegreeWorks is an online advisement tool that shows student progress toward completion of degree requirements. All currently registered CUNY School of Professional Studies (CUNY SPS) degree students have a DegreeWorks account.

DegreeWorks functions as a self-advisement tool that allows students to regularly track their degree progress as well as to plan for future registrations. Students will be able to see how specific College requirements have been met and what courses they need to take to fulfill the requirements that are remaining.

How is a DegreeWorks worksheet different from a transcript?

DegreeWorks is not your academic transcript nor is it an official notification of completion of degree requirements. Changes made to your official CUNY School of Professional Studies academic record will take at least 24-48 hours to be reflected in your DegreeWorks worksheet. DegreeWorks does not supersede the CUNY School of Professional Studies catalog and/or amendments passed by the CUNY Board of Trustees. Your transcript, however, is your official college record, and transcripts must be requested from the Office of the Registrar. Please visit the CUNY Transcripts page to request an official transcript.
