OAG FAQs:

Why doesn’t my degreeworks match my major checklist?
Degreeworks is based on your current catalog and any checklists/paperwork you have may not correspond with the correct catalog. Degreeworks is THE platform used to review and confirm your degree status. If you have questions or concerns about your degreeworks, please reach out to your advisor asap.

Why isn’t my minor showing up on degreeworks?
If you are pursuing a minor but have not officially declared it, you will want to complete the change of minor form prior to submitting the OAG. To officially declare a minor, you must meet with your current academic advisor and the academic advisor for the minor. More info at the link above.
