Please review the Frequently Asked Questions before submitting a question.

Q: How soon after a department submits a curriculum adjustment request will those changes be reflected in Degree Works?
A: Degree Works is updated once all approvals have been assigned to a proposed change and it is adopted as official policy, and only within the bulletin year identified as effective for the change. This process is done as an established step in the approval chain, there should be no need for departments to request that newly submitted adjustments be put in Degree Works beyond the standard application process.

Q: I have a student that is using a 2012 or before Bulletin, how do I run an audit on them?
A: Currently UCA Degree Works only will run audits on 2013 and later Bulletin years. You will need to process a “What If” audit. This is done by choosing “What IF” on the right menu and select the year, degree, major, and concentration (if any) and minor of the student. Then select the Process What-If button.

Q: I have transferred to UCA from another institution with an Associate Degree (A.A., A.A.T, or A.S) but Degree Works says that I have not met my Lower-Division Core Requirements.
A: Unfortunately this happens from time to time. The first thing to do is to check to make sure your official transcript with the degree posted has been received by the Registrar’s office. Once the Registrar’s Office verifies your degree and posts it to your student record at UCA the problem should be resolved. If this does not resolve the issue please use the form below to indicate there is a problem.

Q: I have been informed that an issue has been resolved, but my audit still looks the same.
A: There are some behind the scenes items that have to take place and the solution is to always perform a “Process New” audit button in the middle of the form. If this does not solve the problem please let the Registrar Office know.

Q: The auditor screen has the error message:

“Status = 4390″
The number of audtree-dtls read from the DB was less than expected.
Make sure you have enough space in your DB to save audits and run a new audit.”

A: The solution to this issue is to run “Process New”.
