No. Degree Works is an unofficial audit of your coursework, as well as an outline of requirements still needed to complete your program of study. To order an official SIU transcript see the SIU transcript request policy.
How is a degree evaluation different than a transcript?
A degree evaluation is a tool to provide students and academic advisors with academic information related to a student's individual degree progress. It displays courses required and completed for a specific degree program. A student transcript is the official university record and provides a chronological list of courses completed and other academic information. Official transcripts must be requested from the Transcripts Office.
Which students can use Degree Works?
Currently, DegreeWorks is available to all degree-seeking undergraduate students who have catalog years from 2012-2013 to the present. Students with prior catalog years will work with their academic advisor to develop their individual plan. Degree Works does not replace academic advisement. Advisors, faculty, and selected staff will also have access for the purpose of supporting your progress through your academic career.
How current is student information in Degree Works?
The information in Degree Works is refreshed each night. Any changes made today will be seen in Degree Works tomorrow. Academic advisors may also refresh student information within the platform when a record is updated.
Can students register for classes in Degree Works?
No. Degree Works is a snapshot of courses in-progress, planned, and in academic history. Student self-registration will continue to be handled through Salukinet. Students will see their academic advisor for their updated student education plan, semester courses and Registration User Number (RUN).
Are student grades visible in DegreeWorks?
Yes, once grades have been processed at the end of the semester grades are viewable in Degree Works following the nightly refresh; however, though grades are viewable in Degree Works (and Salukinet) once posted, final grades are not available in Degree Works until after the final grading period for the University has ended. Courses in-progress are listed with an "IP" grade.
Is there a viewable list of all of the classes a student has taken and how many classes left to fulfill requirements?
Yes, to see a printable list of courses taken at SIU as well as transfer courses, go to the Audit tab and click on the Class History link at the top. To identify requirements that you still need to complete, look for unchecked boxes. DegreeWorks is laid out in block format displaying degree, major, minor, and concentration requirements information. Even if a student has a hold, they will be able to view their Audit on Degree Works. The Audit is not an official transcript.
Who does a student contact if they believe their academic information is incorrect?
Students should consult their academic advisor for a review of your audit.
What are the benefits of using Degree Works?
There could be several reasons.
Can a student update information in Degree Works?
Students cannot update course information in DegreeWorks. Students may initiate changes to their academic program by contacting the academic advisement office offering the major/minor/concentration to review requirements. Students can complete a "What If" analysis for a major and minor they are considering prior to requesting the change.

This is a known issue that we are currently working with the vendor to resolve.
Why does Workflow open an Admin Page when I already have an Admin Page open?
When a worklist item launches an Admin Page, the Admin Page must be initiated from Workflow. Otherwise, the Workflow Submit and Release icons on the toolbar are not available.
Why doesn't Workflow launch my Admin Page?

Xtender does not display images, documents, or thumbnails and will not prompt to install the ActiveX control or will fail. What should I do?
Make sure the user is an administrator of the PC. The ActiveX control is trying to install .dll files and administrator access is required to do this.

Is there a way to make scanner configuration changes save in Image Capture and Document Manager?
If scanner settings are not saving, it is usually because you are not an administrator on the PC. The LAN Admin may need to modify your permissions on the workstation you use for scanning.
