Your degree audit in SAGE will help you keep track of your degree requirements throughout your time at Willamette. On your degree audit, you'll be able to see which requirements you've already fulfilled and which you have yet to complete. The degree audit has features to help you find classes to fulfill each requirement, plan what courses you'd like to take in current and future semesters, and even view what your degree audit would look like if you were to switch to another major!
