Ferris has implemented MyDegree, a real-time, web-based academic auditing and advising tool that assists advisors in helping students combine and compare degree requirements and coursework to most effectively chart a path toward degree completion. A major benefit of MyDegree is to help students avoid taking unnecessary courses, which will improve their time to degree completion and therefore reducing student debt. MyDegree includes a "What If" tool that displays how a student’s coursework could be applied toward another major, minor, certificate or concentration.
The MyDegree Advisory Board was created in January 2015 and charged to fulfill the purpose by the Office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs. The purpose of the MyDegree Advisory Board is to collaboratively maintain a university wide user-friendly degree audit system for students and advisors that tracks student degree completion in an organized and efficient manner while ensuring academic curriculum integrity and uniform policy implementation.
