Degree Evaluation

What is a Degree Evaluation?

The online Degree Evaluation is an electronic tool that allows a student to track their academic progress toward the completion of the degree they are seeking to earn.  The Degree Evaluation lists the courses that have been previously completed, the courses the student is currently registered for, and the courses that still need completing.  The dynamic report will also include variance approvals (course substitutes approved by the respective Dean), total credits needed to complete the degree, and the number of credits the student has currently earned.  This document is updated each semester as students complete degree requirements to reflect the most up to date reporting of a students academic progress.

To access a Degree Evaluation

  1. Visit RCGC.edu and log into the portal
  2. Locate the Registration Tools area (left side) and select Degree Evaluation
  3. At the bottom of the page, select Generate New Evaluation
  4. Select your degree and click Generate Request (Do not adjust term)
  5. Select Detail Requirements and click Submit


What-if Analysis

The tool can also generate a "What-if Analysis" report which is used to evaluate how many completed credits could be applied to a new program of study.  If a student is thinking about changing majors, this report will assist the student by determining which courses would count toward the new program of study and which courses would still need completing.  This is a useful tool for determining if changing your program of study would prolong the time needed to complete the degree.
