MyDegreePlan

MyDegreePlan is a powerful and comprehensive degree auditing program. This tool enables students and their advisors to track degree progress in real-time and plan future academic coursework. MyDegreePlan is part of the Banner and Ellucian suite of software products and is designed to work with our existing Banner tools and services to provide seamless communication between a student’s Banner academic history and the degree audit. 

MyDegreePlan is available to all degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students who have catalog years (Programs of Study) from 2010-2011 to the present. Any student using catalogs prior to 2010-2011 should contact their advisor for assistance with their degree evaluation.
