DegreeWorks is a web-based advising tool to help students, faculty and counselors track a student’s completion of academic program requirements, determine course selections, track progress toward graduation, and use “what-if” scenarios to see how courses already taken would apply to a different major. DegreeWorks is user-friendly, has helpful visual cues for completion and can even be accessed from smart phones.
The use of DegreeWorks is part of larger State University of New York initiative so that “every student will have fundamental degree planning services at every institution with the ability online for students considering transfer to assess degree progress at other SUNY institutions” (SUNY Degree Planning Initiative). The college has been working on this implementation for almost one year is has held training sessions for Deans, Chairs, faculty, staff, student leaders, and students. Training sessions will be ongoing through the spring 2015 semester.
To access DegreeWorks go to www.sunywcc.edu/degreeworks; specific questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that DegreeWorks will show full degree audits for students who matriculated into a Westchester Community College degree program plans from fall 2013 on.
As a result of the late Labor Day this year, please note we have adjusted the fall calendar to account for the required number of hours required per course for the 15-week courses on the Valhalla campus that begin before 5:00 pm:

“When I moved to the USA, it was challenging at first but I am grateful for all the support I received from my family, friends, professors, and tutors. Here at Westchester Community College, I discovered more about myself and the value of extracurricular activities. My dream is to help my home country fight hunger and poverty in Africa. Through my group project with the college’s Katherine Davis Scholars Program, I gained more experience in addressing this issue.”
Kyria Aho, Westchester Community College co-valedictorian, 2015

The college issued the following statement regarding questions about a former basketball coach.
Westchester Community College affirms its commitment to the highest standards of academic integrity. We have fully cooperated with the investigation and express our appreciation to the District Attorney’s office for its thoroughness in this matter. In September, the college brought on board a new athletic director, Michael Belfiore, who brings more than a decade of experience leading programs for scholar athletes in collegiate and national athletic association roles. His leadership has already begun to shape the future direction of the basketball teams and all of our athletic programs with an emphasis on student success.
There are many complicated factors involved in contract negotiations. We collaborated with the County during this process. Our analysis did not indicate the need for a tuition increase for our students. We look forward to further discussion with our employees and all parties on behalf of the County and the college.
