DegreeMap

Using the Planner Tool

The Planner is where your GWSB advisor will record documentation and recommendations for your future semesters at GW. The Planner is a great resource for students to refer to after advising appointments. To use the Planner as you map out your course registration, see the following instructions:

  • Once you have reviewed the Worksheet (the first page when you login), click on the Planner tab.
  • In the Planner tool, you will see a split screen with your worksheet on the left-hand side and the Planner on the right-hand side.
  • During your advising appointment, your advisor will update your Planner with suggested courses for the upcoming semester.
  • After appointments, refer back to the Planner for a refresher on course suggestions and any recommendations your advisor has noted.

Using the What-If Feature

The What-If feature of DegreeMAP allows you to see what different degree/concentrations might look like.  IMORTANT NOTE: this feature does generate combinations that aren’t possible in reality. For further information on this feature, visit the DegreeMAP website and/or talk to advisors.
