Using the "What If" feature in DegreeWorks can help you explore other majors or help you meet requirements for transferring.
Using "What If" to Explore Options in Your Major
If the major showing on your worksheet is not correct, or you would like to explore other majors you may use the “What If” feature. Just select “What If”, then select your Goal, then select your Catalog Year.
You can either choose the year in which you first started at Sierra without taking more than a one semester break, or, if you are close to finishing, choose the year in which you will complete your degree or certificate. Then pick your Major. If you do not see your major, be sure you have selected the correct goal. Some of our majors are only certificates or AS degrees and if you choose AA degree as your goal, they will not show on the Major list.
Using "What If" to Transfer
Use “What If” to ensure you are completing CSU GE (CSU General Education Breadth Requirements) or IGETC (Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum). Just choose CSU or IGETC Worksheet as your goal, choose the current catalog year and do not choose a major. To find the classes you need for your major for transfer use www.assist.org. Or, you may choose AA Transfer or AS Transfer degrees if we offer one in your major.
