myDegreeWorks is a web-based tool designed to help students monitor
their progress toward degree completion.
myDegreeWorks combines Gavilan's degree requirements and completed college coursework into an easy-to-read
worksheet. The worksheet shows how courses apply toward degree
requirements and identifies what courses and graduation requirements are still
needed to complete a Gavilan degree. Course work from other colleges must be evaluated by a counselor prior to awarding credit on myDegreeWorks.
myDegreeWorks also provides 24/7 access to the Gavilan Educational Plans. The educational plan outlines, semester-by-semester, all courses that must be completed to attain educational and career goals. The educational plan, unlike the degree audit worksheet, will identify required prerequisites, developmental courses, or coursework needed for transfer to a four-year university, transfer to another community college, or to apply to a specialized vocational program such as Nursing, Dental Hygiene, or Physician Assistant programs. All students are encouraged to schedule a counseling appointment to develop an Educational Plan.
myDegreeWorks is designed to assist with academic planning but is not intended to replace face-to-face counseling sessions. All students are encouraged to discuss their myDegreeWorks worksheets with a Gavilan College Counselor.
