Does MyDegree Replace Advising? No. MyDegree is a tool to assist in the advising process. It is meant to help advisors and students in the process of course selection and academic program planning. It reduces the mechanical record-keeping tasks and gives advisors more time to interact with students, concentrating on academic and career counseling.
Advisors will help resolve any problem areas. Also, some academic majors require choosing a series of courses in consultation or with the approval of the advisor.
MyDegree does NOT replace advising - it just helps make it an easier and more meaningful interaction.
