Academic Advising & Support

DegreeWorks & Canvas

  • DegreeWorks is a web-based academic advising and degree audit tool primarily introduced for undergraduate students under the 4-year degree curriculum. DegreeWorks matches a student’s academic record against the curriculum requirements. It offers a user-friendly interface that helps students learn easily what courses they still need to take to fulfill the requirements of College/School, GE, major, minor, etc. It also facilitates communication between students and advisors. Students are encouraged to use the “Planner” function in DegreeWorks. “Planner" helps you create a long term study plan for your degree completion. Using this tool, you can easily discuss your academic goals and plan with your Advisor.
    Tutorials on Degree Works are available at ARRO’s website
  • Canvas by Instructure is a unified Learning Management System (LMS) of CityU adopted from Semester B 2014/2015. Online teaching or learning activities will be running on Canvas unless your course instructor has special arrangement.
    Canvas User Guides are available at OCIO’s website
