What is DegreeCheck?

DegreeCheck is a web-based advising tool which will produce an easy-to-read and user-friendly academic evaluation to help students and advisors monitor progress toward degree completion. DegreeCheck looks at the degree requirements of the PPCC catalog and the coursework completed to give students and advisors better information in selecting coursework and understanding degree requirements. DegreeCheck is designed to aid and facilitate academic advising, but is not intended to replace face-to-face advising sessions. DegreeCheck is neither an official academic transcript nor an official notification of completion of degree requirements.

Accessing DegreeCheck

You may access DegreeCheck via your myPPCC account. In the myPPCC portal, click on the Student tab and then click the “DegreeCheck” image. The DegreeCheck channel should look similar to the screenshot below:

DegreeCheck includes the following features:

Audit Feature

  • Lists requirements needed to complete your degree and/or certificate based on courses taken or currently in progress.

What If Feature

  • What-If audits allow you to process hypothetical degree audits using your current class history

Plans Feature

  • Allows advisors and students to create an academic plan based on degree requirements.

GPA Calculator Feature

  • Shows your estimated cumulative GPA after you fill in hypothetical grade information.

Additional DegreeCheck Information

DegreeCheck is updated nightly so changes made will not appear until the next day. Also, your record may have pending changes that require processing such as a change of major or recent transcripts received that need to be evaluated officially and processed. If you have additional questions, please review our DegreeCheck FAQs.
