What If

The Degree Progress tool will only show you the progress you have made on your current degree. If you want to see what you would need to do for a different degree without changing it, you can use the What-If tool. 

  1. After logging into ctcLink, use the Menu to select Academics, then What-If
  2. Select the Create Report button. 
  3. On the New Report page, enter information on the degree you want to dreate a report on and select the Submit Report button. Below are some tips on how to create a report. 
    1. You will want to select information working left to right, top to bottom. Changing the selection in a drop-down box higher up will often reset the boxes lower down. 
    2. There are three types of programs to choose from: Academic, Baccalaureate, and Professional Technical.
      1. Academic lists the main transfer degrees like the Associate of Arts and Sciences, Associate of Business, and Associate of Science.
      2. Baccalaureate lists the four-year degrees like the Bachelor of Applied Science in Engineering Technology, Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and Bachelor of Applied Science in Teaching. 
      3. Professional Technical lists the technical degrees and certificates like the Associate in Nursing, Graphic Design, and Industrial Tech Machining. 
    3. Be sure to select Major from the Plan Type drop down.
    4. If you are looking at a Professional Technical program, be sure to double check that you have selected the correct Plan. Many Professional Technical programs have two-year degree options and shorter certificate options. 
      1. The two-year degrees will include Associate, ATS, or AAST in their title (e.g., Associate in Nursing DTA/MRP, Business ATS, Pharmacy Technician AAST). 
      2. The certificate options will include a C followed by a number in their title (e.g., ECE General C20, Medical Assistant C45).
  4. The What-If scenario will display a similar way to the Degree Progress, but you will also be able to get a PDF report. Once you have run a What-If scenario, it will be saved to the What-If page.
