Degree Planner Helps Students Visualize the Path to Graduation

Wednesday, February 3, 2021 - 16:15


We’re pleased to introduce a new tool for advisors to help students evaluate options and plan a clear path to graduation. Degree Planner, part of PeopleSoft/HighPoint Campus Experience (CX), launches today and provides a variety of benefits not previously available to students and advisors:

  • Shows the courses a student should take to graduate and indicates the sequence in which to take them using a clear, visual map
  • Offers expanded, flexible “what if” scenarios that show impact on graduation, including adjusting credit load, changes to or single/dual majors, study abroad, and more
  • Identifies students who are off plan and may need degree planning assistance
  • Improves on-time graduation results and provides improved data to help with department programming

Access Degree Planner by searching for “CX” in myPitt. Once advisors log in to CX, they:

  1. Click View Advisees, then Lookup Student.
    Note: An advisor clicks Act as User and accept a FERPA notification before proceeding.
  2. Advisors enter a student’s name in the fields provided.
  3. From the left side menu, select Academics, then Degree Planner.

A user guide for faculty members, instructors, and advisors is available through a resources page on the registrar’s website. For more information, email the Office of the University Registrar or call 412-624-7649.
