Implementing DegreeWorks for Q2S conversion

Due to the next year's conversion to the semester system across all technical colleges of Georgia, Wiregrass Georgia Technical College IT Department is working on implementing DegreeWorks software by Sunguard Technology to make the conversion easier on faculty and students.

DegreeWorks provides a comprehensive set of web-based academic advising, degree audit, and transfer articulation tools to help students and their advisors negotiate your institution’s curriculum requirements.

  • Minimizes errors through consistent degree plans
  • Supports more timely degree certification
  • Reduces paperwork and manual program check sheets
