2020 Dates and Location
April 3–5, 2020
Held independently from Ellucian Live 2020, this fee-based forum focuses exclusively on Ellucian Degree Works and brings together experienced users, new users, and everyone in between to learn just exactly what Ellucian Degree Works™ can do.
Join more than 800 of your colleagues in Orlando, FL for the next Ellucian Degree Works™ Forum, an unparalleled opportunity for learning, exploring, and networking with fellow users and the Ellucian team.
Scheduled from Friday to Sunday, April 3-5, the Degree Works Forum features two-and-a-half days of Degree Works-focused sessions as well as meals, training, and networking.
This real-time view will update as sessions are added or canceled. It contains the title, description, and dates for each session. While all users can see the session information and schedule, and starting in mid-January, only registered attendees may build a schedule.
If you’re not registered, you can still search all of the session descriptions and details for presentations and panels that will be offered at Degree Works™ Forum 2020.

If you are registered, simply log in with the email and password you set up when registering, choose the sessions you want to attend, and get started.
Please note that the capacity in breakout rooms is limited. Therefore, we ask all registrants planning to attend Ellucian Live and/or Degree Works Forum sessions to reserve their seats using the official CVENT online schedule builder tool. To reserve a seat in a specific session you must add that session to your personal schedule in the schedule builder tool.
The seat reservation process for each session will be done on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, we recommend that you secure a seat as soon as we open the schedule builder tool and not later than March 1, 2020. This update is intended to provide a smooth seating process and enhance your on-site experience.
Each session has preassigned capacity limits. If you reserve a seat in a session, you must arrive at least 5 minutes before the session is scheduled to start. All reservations are canceled at 5 minutes before the session starts. If you are late, you will be asked to join the stand-by queue, with no guaranteed seat available.
Those who have not reserved a seat will be asked to line up in the stand-by queue. At 5 minutes prior to the session start time if there are seats available in the session, attendees in the stand-by queue will be offered seats in the order of getting into line. Please note, waiting in the stand-by line does not guarantee you a seat. Be sure to schedule your sessions before seating in the room fills up for an optimum on-site experience.BUILD SCHEDULE
You can also schedule your one-on-one consulting appointments for the Ellucian Degree Works Forum, Ellucian Action Line (opening in late January), and Professional Services open houses. To guarantee you get a seat, you need to reserve it in advance, and since there are only a limited number of consulting sessions available, do this soon.

Take advantage of this once-a-year event to explore the full potential of Ellucian Degree Works. You’ll connect with peers in the Ellucian Degree Works community and share knowledge on a wide variety of topics. You’ll also have the opportunity to get answers and advice from the experts during open houses with Ellucian Action Line and Professional Services.
Attendees include registrars, academic program staff, degree audit specialists (scribers), IT specialists, and advising management and staff.
You may choose to attend the Degree Works Forum and Ellucian Live 2020 individually or as a package. Because the Degree Works Forum precedes Ellucian Live, many participants choose to stay and attend the full conference to maximize the benefit of their trips. We offer a discounted registration package for those attending both events.
