5 common pitfalls that keep students from graduating— and how to avoid them.

One solution that addresses your toughest challenges.

You’re under pressure to help students stay in school and graduate on time. Advisors need to help high-performing students find great opportunities like internships or study abroad options and to make sure at-risk students get the support and resources they need to stay on track. And students want to be empowered to make their own academic plan and see clearly the courses they’ve taken, what counts, and what they need to graduate. Some systems do some things. Ellucian Degree Works™ is a degree audit, transfer articulation, and student planning solution that does it all.

  1. Students waste time and money taking courses they don’t need

  2. Students on financial aid or athletic eligibility scholarships may take a course that puts their funding at risk

  3. Students that transfer or change schools often end up retaking courses unnecessarily

  4. Academic advisors with heavy caseloads find it increasingly difficult to individually guide and support students

  5. Institutions face serious challenges keeping students in school—and funding is tied to retention rates
