We’re pleased to introduce a new tool for helping your students evaluate options and plan a clear path to graduation. Degree Planner, part of PeopleSoft/HighPoint Campus Experience (CX) has a variety of benefits not previously available to you or the students you advise:

  • Shows the courses a student should take to graduate and clearly indicates the sequence in which to take them using a clear, visual map 
  • Offers expanded “what if” scenarios that show the impact on graduation, including adjusting credit load, changes to or single/dual majors, study abroad, and more 
  • Can be used to identify students who are off plan and may need degree planning assistance 
  • Improves on-time graduation results and provides improved data to help with department programming
