Samford University

DegreeWorks and Graduation

Graduation is the goal.  DegreeWorks can help you reach it.



DegreeWorks is Samford's Web-based degree audit and advising software.  It provides students and advisors guidance in determining the most ideal paths to program completion; reflects transfer articulation and degree completion percentage; allows for individual degree planning (using the Student Education Planner); allows for what-if scenarios (for students considering a major change); and much more.

The DegreeWorks Overview Page contains a timeline/calendar of past and future events (i.e., software upgrades), info about the latest release, tips on specific features, info on known defects, tutorials, and more. (DW Test Page)



While there are three graduation seasons in the academic year (fall, spring, summer), there are only two ceremonies (fall and spring). Check out the Graduation Home Page for information such as a list of graduation events/activities, graduation candidates for the current semester, maps and directions to the ceremony locations, information on when diplomas will be ready to pick up or mail, and more.
