Comprehensive New Software System Coming for Fall Term

April 13, 2016 -- CNM is in the process of implementing a comprehensive new software system that will help students stay on track to graduate through a variety of valuable features. The software, called “Degree Works,” is scheduled to go live for the Fall Term with demonstrations and trainings coming this summer.

Some of the features include:

On-demand Degree Audits – Students, advisors, and coaches will be able to easily monitor progress toward the completion of a degree or certificate. Clear visuals will display required courses that need to be completed and progress bars show how close a student is to graduating.

Student Planning Tools – Model degree plans can be created and assigned to individual students or groups of students.

Real-time Reporting – Leveraging student data, the software will empower CNM to better plan for courses needed by students to graduate and identify emerging enrollment patterns.

Forecasting Time to Degree – Students can get better informed on how long it takes to complete a certificate or degree, adjusting for factors such as anticipated course loads per term. Students will also be able to more clearly understand the amount of time it takes to complete different degrees or certificates.

Exception Processing– Course substitutions and waivers are shown in a student’s degree audit.

GPA Calculator – If a student is striving for a certain GPA, it’s calculated for them.

Look for more information about Degree Works soon, including training opportunities and demonstrations coming this summer.
