Degree Planning

Coastline Community College adheres to the principles and criteria set forth by Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC), to ensure that quality academic programs are available to active-duty military students, their family, and veterans.

One of the many advantages for students attending Coastline is the official SOC Agreement (also known as a Degree Plan) - an evaluation of military and college credit towards a degree. This evaluation guarantees a solid path to your Coastline degree and is required before a degree will be awarded. 

4 Steps to Receiving your Official SOC Agreement/Degree Plan:

        *Army students - please visit Apply and Register (Step 8)

Upon completion of the above steps, an official SOC Agreement/Degree Plan and DegreeWorks degree audit will be prepared and emailed to the student within 4 - 6 weeks.
Official SOC Agreement/Degree Plans will remain valid as long as a student maintains continuous enrollment, or as long as breaks in enrollment are less than 5 cumulative years.

DegreeWorks

DegreeWorks is Coastline's online academic advisement tool in MyCCC that helps you:

  • Track progress toward completion of your associate degree/certificate
  • Confirm how your current courses apply to your graduation requirements
  • Determine how changing your major will affect your graduation date with the “What If”* feature
 
When your official SOC Agreement/Degree Plan is created, your DegreeWorks degree audit is complete and ready for use.
