Admissions & Aid
DegreeWorks is a Web-based degree audit program and academic advising tool designed to assist you and advisers in reviewing your degree progress.
It helps you identify courses you have completed (including transfer courses) and courses you still need in order to fulfill your degree requirements.
Note: DegreeWorks weekly maintenance occurs Monday afternoon through the evening hours. During this time parts of the application may not be available.
Use your CUNYfirst username and password to log in to DegreeWorks and follow these instructions (PDF).
The “Look Ahead” function has been renamed to “Future Courses” and is part of the What If section.
“Future Courses” allows the worksheet to reflect unregistered classes the student plans to take in future semesters.
The “What If” function allows you to hypothetically change your major, minor, or concentration. The “What If” audit will show you what course work is required for the new major, minor, or concentration; what courses you have taken that satisfy requirements; and what courses are still left for you to take.

Because “What If” scenarios are not stored on DegreeWorks, your adviser can see your results only if the two of you work through a “What If” procedure together.
All students who are active in the current term have a record in DegreeWorks. All staff and faculty must contact the DegreeWorks Administrator for access.
DegreeWorks is accessible using your CUNYfirst credentials.

The transcript is the official record of grades. The DegreeWorks worksheet is a tool provided to help you evaluate your progress toward fulfilling your degree requirements.
You cannot update this information directly in DegreeWorks. You must submit an online request to change of major, minor, or concentration via the Brooklyn College WebCentral Portal.
The @ symbol is used as a wild card in DegreeWorks. If @ appears after the subject (e.g., HIST @), it means that you can take any course within the subject area—in this case, any history course. If you see @ with course numbers after it (e.g., @ 2000:2999), it means that you can take any subject area within the number range—in this case, any 2000-level course from any subject area. If you see @ @, it means any subject and/or course number.
Anytime, but it is recommended you check your audit at the following times:
