Planning Coursework with Degree Works

Degree Works is a web-based tool that enables students and their advisors to review past, present, and future academic coursework to evaluate which degree requirements are complete and which degree requirements remain. It is one of the most important tools you have as a student.

Missed Classes? Did you completed other class(es), but do not see it your Degree Works? Degree Works functions from official transcripts. If you have coursework that is not showing it may be one
of these reasons:

  • Official transcripts must be received and evaluated from every attended college and university.
  • “In-process” course: Any class listed on your official transcript(s) as “in progress” when received by Athens State will require an updated official transcript that has a grade in order for it to be included in your official record.

Official Transcript send to Athens State University, Office of Admissions, 300 N. Beaty Street, Athens, AL 35611

* New Students are highly encouraged to submit all official transcripts to Athens State as early as possible.
