DegreeMAP

DegreeMAP, the University’s advising tool, maps out each student’s degree program requirements and completion status, and should be used to track your program. DegreeMAP outlines all course(s), and non-course requirements such as comprehensive examinations required for your program.

DegreeMAP is accessed via GWEB. Students and advisors are strongly encouraged to consult DegreeMAP each semester to ensure degree program requirements are being met. Occasionally, course substitutions (petitions) are needed to update your DegreeMAP record. Only your Director of Graduate Studies (DGS) can submit these petitions. In order to be cleared for graduation your DegreeMAP must reflect 100% completion.

If you find errors in your DegreeMAP, or if courses are not displaying under the degree requirements, please contact our Director of Graduate Studies (DGS).

Descriptions of the different DegreeMAP sections are below or watch out short video below which goes through how to access and check your DegreeMAP
