Read through the information below prior to submitting a DegreeWorks Edit Request.
This form should only be completed by authorized DegreeWorks officials.
Who manages DegreeWorks edits at the academic colleges?
Academic advisors, faculty, and/or staff are encouraged to notify the authorized DegreeWorks
Official(s) at their respective College upon discovery of discrepancies. Typically
this is the Deans advising team in the Colleges. Advisors will need to reference the
applicable catalog year, Block (Gen. Ed./Carolina Core, Major, Minor, Cognate, other)
where the error is found. This works interchangeably – the degree audit team in the
registrar's office occasionally finds discrepancies within academic program requirements
and forwards these findings to the College to review and provide clarification, if
How do I submit a request for a DegreeWorks edit to the Office of the University Registrar?
The DegreeWorks official should populate the applicable fields on the DegreeWorks
Edit Request form with descriptive information of the issue. After you complete the
form, select submit at the bottom of the edit form and you will receive an auto-generated
reply to the email address you provided. If applicable, supporting documentation should
be uploaded to the DegreeWorks Edit Request form or forwarded to email@example.com by the authorized DegreeWorks official at the College. Documentation (i.e. Committee
on Curricula and Courses minutes, copies of bulletin, copies of curriculum sheets)
is used to verify program requirements as approved in a frozen bulletin. Program requirements
will not be updated in DegreeWorks until these requirements are approved and published
in the academic bulletin. Typos do not require supporting documentation.
Examples of discrepancies/errors that are considered routine fixes to include on the DegreeWorks Edit Request form
- Typos in DegreeWorks
- Missing program requirements in DegreeWorks
- Missing allowable courses in DegreeWorks- these should approved courses that are included in the bulletin
- Credit hour discrepancies within a program requirement in DegreeWorks

This list of routine fixes may change over the course of the DegreeWorks implementation
at USC Columbia and regional campuses.
