- What is the “What If” feature?
The What If function allows you to hypothetically change your major, minor, or emphasis. The What If audit will display just as your original audit with courses required for the submitted major, minor, and/or concentration. Transcripted coursework will automatically fill where applicable.
When selecting a projected area of study, you may also enter courses you anticipate taking. These antipated courses will show as planned on your What If audit.
- Will the What If feature match emphases to to the correct majors?
The What If feature contains all majors and emphases listed in the last six years of Western's academic catalogs. It will give you a hypothetical scenario based on what you select.
Make sure to check your catalog to select a valid program and match the correct major to the correct emphasis.
- Can I change my major using What If?
No. The What If function is for exploration purposes only.
If you decide you do wish to change program, please submit a Change of Major, Minor or Advisor form. Keep in mind, if you're changing your major you will need an advisor from your new discipline sign the form as well.
- Can I save my What If scenario?
- I'd like to show my advisor, parents, etc what would happen if I change my major.
What If scenarios cannot be saved within DegreeWorks. You may re-enter your What If parameters as often as you'd like to recreate scenarios.
However, you can print or save your What If as a PDF by clicking the Save As PDF buttor before clicking Process What If.
