There are two different degree evaluation tools for students: one for students who entered a degree program prior to Fall 2013 and one for students who entered a degree program in Fall 2013 or after.
Degree Evaluation (CAP): Students admitted prior to Fall 2013
Students admitted to a UNH degree program prior to Fall 2013 should use the Degree Evaluation (Student Services & Financial Aid>Student Records>Degree Evaluation>Degree Evaluation- For students first admitted to UNH prior to Fall 2013). It is excellent in determining the completion of Discovery Program or General Education requirements, Writing Intensive requirements, and – for BA candidates – the Foreign Language requirement.
If your Webcat Degree Evaluation shows that you are missing one of the degree requirements mentioned above that you believe has been covered by a course you have taken, please contact the Graduation Department staff to have a review done of your record.
The Webcat Degree Evaluation tool does not always work well in showing the completion of major requirements, particularly if students have transfer credits that are counting toward their major. Please make sure you understand your major requirements, and review your progress toward completion of your major coursework with your advisor.
Degree Works (DW): Students admitted Fall 2013 and after
Students admitted to a UNH degree program Fall 2013 and after should use the Degree Works degree evaluation (Student Services & Financial Aid>Student Records>Degree Evaluation>Degree Evaluation- For students first admitted to UNH Fall 2013 and after). This user friendly system can accurately show the completion of Discovery requirements, Writing Intensive requirements, the Foreign Language requirement for BA candidates, and major requirements. Please consult with your advisor if you see a missing requirement that you believe should be filled with a course you have taken or are taking.
The Degree Evaluation tool for students admitted to a degree program prior to Fall 2013 does not accurately reflect earned credits. To see an accurate accounting of earned credits, view your Academic Transcript on Webcat (Student Services & Financial Aid>Student Records>Academic Transcript). The ‘Earned Credits’ shows only those classes already completed.
The Degree Works degree evaluation (for students admitted to a degree program in Fall 2013 and after) shows credits earned and credits in progress. Please remember the total earned credits will change at the end of the semester if you are repeating a course or fail a course.
Please remember it is your responsibility to make sure all the requirements necessary for graduation are met. Make sure you understand the requirements of your degree and major. Contact the Graduation Office with questions about your Discovery/General Education, Writing Intensive, and Foreign Language requirements. Contact your advisor with questions about your major requirements.
