In an effort to remove the obstacles to student completion and success, the Guam Community College has implemented the Ellucian Degree Works system to help students design and complete their education plans in a timely manner.
Ellucian Degree Works is comprehensive academic advising, transfer articulation and degree audit solution that helps students and their advisors successfully navigate GCC’s curriculum requirements. Students whose degree requirements are under a catalog prior to 2016-2017 should see their academic advisor for more information on what is displayed within their degree audit on the Degree Works system.
What is Degree Works?
Degree Works is an online advising tool to help monitor your progress toward degree completion. Degree Works matches Guam Community College’s degree requirements to the coursework you have completed or have in progress in an easy-to-read worksheet that shows how those courses count toward degree requirements. Degree Works also shows what courses you still need to take.
Disclaimer: You are encouraged to use this degree audit report as a guide when planning your registration and long-term progress toward degree completion. It is not a substitute for academic advising. Be sure to contact your academic advisor.
