What is myGradPlan?
myGradPlan is a web-based tool to help you and your advisor monitor progress toward degree completion. myGradPlan looks at Lane degree requirements and your coursework completed to produce an easy-to-read degree audit. The degree audit shows how courses count towards your degree requirements. Checkboxes exist to easily outline courses and requirements that are completed or in-progress. myGradPlan can be used to plan for future coursework. You can save your degree audit as a PDF, print and then discuss it with your academic advisor.

A myGraduationPlan audit is a review of past, current and planned coursework that provides information on completed and outstanding requirements necessary to complete your program. The audit is divided into block requirements such as Foundational Skills, General Education, Electives, and Program Requirements (CORE). Each block works like a checklist and boxes are automatically checked when a requirement is met.
The information in myGraduationPlan is refreshed each night. Any changes made today (e.g., grade changes or classes added/dropped) will be seen in myGraduationPlan tomorrow.
Yes. Once grades have been processed at the end of the term, they are viewable in myGraduationPlan.
Yes. On the Audits tab, click on the Class History link at the top for a list of courses taken at Lane as well as courses transferred to Lane from other institutions.
Once AP scores are received from the College Board and credit is granted, they are posted to the student record and will appear on the audit. Likewise, transfer work will appear on the audit if there is an official transcript on file and a transcript evaluation request form has been completed.
Each term myGraduationPlan will reset the In-Progress term to the upcoming term. This will happen the day after grade processing has occurred for all students. Grades may be posted early for some student in which case these grades will appear as ‘In-Progress’.
Your audit will outline courses needed to meet your degree or certificate requirements within each specific block. You may then use this information to discuss your plan with your academic advisor or counselor.
Please ask your advisor for assistance. The first step is to clarify what information you believe is wrong. These are the most common problems and courses of action:
- My program of study is wrong on my audit.
If you have not officially changed your program of study, contact your current advisor for instructions. If you have already officially changed your program of study the audit will only display your active degree audit.
- The requirements for my program of study are wrong.
Look at the catalog year that appears on the major requirements block of the audit. According to our records this is the catalog year that you are using to complete your requirements. If you believe you should be using older or newer requirements, contact your advisor.
- My transfer courses don't appear in the right place.
Look at the Student View of myGraduationPlan to see if your transcripts have been received and evaluated. If you have not submitted a transcript evaluation request go to If your transfer credits were evaluated and still do not appear on the audit please email DegreeEvaluators@lanecc.edu.
- Classes are not applying in the "right" place.
DegreeWorks uses a 'best fit' approach for meeting requirements so classes may apply to different sections as you take more courses. If you have further questions, please contact your advisor.
- I have been given permission to substitute a course, but it's not showing on my audit. Contact the Completion Specialists at DegreeEvaluators@lanecc.edu. Once exceptions are entered the change will appear on the audit.
If none of these problems describe your situation, or if you need additional help identifying what's wrong, contact your advisor. If the advisor believes a technical error exists on the audit, they will email the Completion Specialists at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not necessarily. This can be a timing issue such as posting of grades for the current term. If you have followed through on any requirements you were told to complete, you should still be on track for graduation. Contact your advisor as soon as possible.
You should always review your audit:
- Before you meet with your academic advisor to discuss registration for an upcoming term.
- After you register to ensure that the courses you selected applied to your requirements like you thought they would.
- After your grades for each semester are posted.
- Any time you make a change to your schedule or major.
Your degree audit is a tool to provide you with academic information related to your degree progress. It displays courses required and completed in your degree program. Your transcript is your official academic record and provides a chronological list of courses completed and other academic information.
myGraduationPlan looks at your program holistically, and places each course using a "best fit" scenario. The "best fit" process will not always be perfect, particularly when multiple possibilities exist. Classes may apply to different sections as you take more courses. If you have a course that does not appear in the area in which you expected, please contact your advisor for assistance.
In most cases, yes. myGraduationPlan is programmed to recognize that some courses can fulfill more than one requirement. If you have any questions, contact your advisor.

A few. While myGraduationPlan has been designed to check almost everything that you must complete to qualify for graduation, there may be additional requirements for your major that must be completed as well. You should use myGraduationPlan in conjunction with the Lane course catalog and with any information that your program department provides to ensure that you remain on track for graduation. If you have questions about any additional requirements for your major, talk with your advisor.
Look at the degree information next to your name at the top of the screen. You'll notice that the degree box has a drop-down arrow. Use this to select your second degree. Once you select on this, an audit with the additional major will display.
If you successfully repeat a course, only your last attempt counts toward degree requirements. The earlier attempt(s) will be placed in a "Noncredit" category at the bottom of your audit. The courses in this area do not count toward your total hours, and they cannot be used to fulfill requirements.
This is a wild card in myGraduationPlan. If the @ sign appears with course numbers after it (i.e., @ 100:200), it means that you can take any subject area with that level (a 100-200 level course from any subject area). If it appears after a subject prefix (i.e., PSYC @), it means that you can take any course with that subject prefix (any course in Psychology).
