Degree Works for Advisors

Degree Works is a Web-based tool that enables advisors to view a real-time comparison of a student’s academic coursework against program specific requirements. The information is presented in an easy-to-read color-coded checklist format.

Degree Works can be accessed after signing into MyIUP using your IUP network account:
