What is the What-If feature?
The What-If function allows you to hypothetically change your major or minor. The What-If audit will show you what coursework is required for the new major, minor, what courses you have taken that satisfy requirements, and what courses are still left for you to take.
If I use the What-If feature does this mean that I have changed my major?
No. The What-If function is for information purposes only. You will see the header What-If Audit displayed at the top of the audit whenever an audit is run on a What-If scenario.
I’m thinking of changing my major/minor. Will I be able to see how my current classes fit into my What-If major/minor/concentration?
Yes. The What-If function will perform an audit based on the hypothetical major/minor and will show how your completed and current coursework meets the requirements of the hypothetical major/minor.
Can my advisor see my What-If scenario?
Since What-If scenarios are not stored on DegreeWorks, your advisor can only see your results if the two of you work through a What-If procedure together.
Can I save a What-If scenario?
No. What-If plans are not saved on DegreeWorks. You would need to run a new What-If scenario next time you log in to see it again.
Can I print a What-If scenario?
Yes. If you want to share it with your advisor at a later date, you should print your What-If scenario.
If I like what I see in a What-If scenario, how do I initiate the changes?
Always speak to your advisor before making any changes. You might also check with Financial Aid to determine how changes will impact any aid you are receiving.
