Sims 4 Degree Cheats

To use sims 4 cheat codes, open up the cheat code box using CTRL + SHIFT + C and type in ‘testingcheats on’, then type in the degree cheat. To close the cheats console use CTRL + SHIFT + C again.

To cheat a university degree in sims 4, you’ll need to open up the cheat code box and enter in one of the degree cheats listed for each degree type.

You’ll see four cheat codes listed for each degree: regular degree, regular degree with honors, distinguished degree, and distinguished degree with honors.

You only need to enter in ONE of these cheat codes for each degree that you want your sim to have.

Quick Tip: In Sims 4, BA (Bachelor of Arts) is always from Britechester and BS (Bachelor of Science) is always from Foxbury.

However, you can enter multiple cheat codes to give your sims more than one degree, like if you want your sim to have both a Biology degree and an Economics degree.

Once you’ve entered in the cheat code, the degree will show up in your sim’s simology panel under the degree section.

If you find that these university cheats are not working, make sure you have testingcheats on, the sim you want to give a degree is active, and that the cheat code has been typed in correctly.

I highly suggest using copy & paste to put these cheat codes into your sims game to prevent any possible typos.

Here are the sims 4 degree cheats divided up by each university degree:

Sims 4 Degree Cheats FAQ

Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions regarding sims 4 university degree cheats such as: how to cheat a degree in sims 4, how to get an A+ in sims 4 university, the difference between degrees and distinguished degrees, and if your sim can have 2 degrees at a time.

Can I cheat to get a degree in Sims 4?

It’s super simple to cheat to get a degree in sims 4. All you need to do is open up the cheat box using CTRL + SHIFT + C, making sure testingcheats is on, then enter in the cheat code for the degree type you want to give your sim.

You can find all of the specific university degree cheats for sims 4 discover university here!

How do you get A+ in Sims 4 University?

If you want your sim to get an A+ in University, have your sim:

  • attend all college classes
  • during class, take notes and listen actively
  • complete all homework (to make this easier, I use the faster homework mod!)
  • email professors about progress using phone or computer to check on grade
  • refine and organize all required presentations until excellent quality then give go give the presentation before the end of term
  • write and edit all required term papers until excellent quality then submit them using the computer before the end of term
  • study before the end of the term then attend final exams on-time

But if that’s too much work, you can also cheat an A+ grade in your sims 4 university classes by downloading the UI Cheats Extension mod, right-clicking on your sim’s class in the class schedule panel, and entering in 100 for their course grade.

This also allows you to see what your sim’s current grade is from 1 to 100, in case you were curious!

What’s the difference between degrees and distinguished degrees in Sims 4?

The biggest difference between regular degrees and distinguished degrees in sims 4 is that when your sim graduates with a distinguished degree, they will be offered a higher starting level in those careers and a higher starting bonus.

For example: If your sim has a distinguished degree in Biology from Foxbury, they can immediately start in the doctor career at level 7 instead of starting at level 6 with a regular degree from Britechester.

Each university, Foxbury and Britechester, has its specific distinguished degree programs that you’ll need to be accepted into to get the distinguished degree.

Britechester Distinguished Degrees:

  • Art History
  • Communications
  • Culinary Arts
  • Drama
  • Fine Art
  • History
  • Language & Literature

Foxbury Distinguished Degrees:

  • Biology
  • Computer Science
  • Economics
  • Physics
  • Psychology
  • Villainy

The best degree you can possibly get in sims 4 is a distinguished degree with honors.

But don’t worry if your sim doesn’t get into the college of their choice, getting a regular degree with honors is almost just as good when it comes to starting job levels and bonuses!

Can a sim have 2 degrees?

Yes, your sim can have 2 degrees in sims 4 discover university.

You can actually give your sim as many degrees as you want by completing them one at a time, using degree cheats for each one, or using the ‘give your sim every degree’ option with the MC Command Center mod.

Sims 4 Mods for Cheating a Degree

Mods make giving your sims a degree, even multiple degrees, SO much easier!

You don’t have to go through the hassle of writing out long cheat codes and accidentally including a typo that messes the whole thing up.

With the click of a button, you can give your sim a degree, cheat their grade, have them join a university organization, and even graduate early!

The mods I’m going to share with you are the best way to your cheat your degree in sims 4, but they’re also listed in my must-have mods for sims 4 post because they really are some of the best mods out there.

1. MC Command Center by Deaderpool

MC Command Center is an essential mod for the sims 4. It has TONS of features, so you’ll see it talked about it in most of my cheat posts. It makes it a lot easier to alter our sims through a series of menus instead of having to enter cheat codes.


For this post, we’ll be focusing on how to cheat a degree in Sims 4 MCCC and some of its other cool university cheats features.

First, click on your sim and find the ‘MC Command Center‘ option.

Once the menu pops up navigate to MC Cheats > Cheat Sim Info > Expansion Cheats > University Cheats.

To give your sim a degree, click on ‘Award Specific Degree‘.

This will bring up the options: Diploma, Honors Diploma, Prestige Diploma, & Honors/Prestige Diploma.

These are known in Sims 4 Discover University as: Degree, Degree with Honors, Distinguished Degree, & Distinguished Degree with Honors.

Pick the degree type you want then which subject you want your sim to have a degree in, like a fine art degree.

You can find your sim’s new degree listed under degrees in their Simology Panel!

Two other things you can do with MCCC University Cheats is Graduate Now, to have your sim graduate immediately from their current degree program with a perfect GPA, and Finish Term, to immediately finish the current school term your sim is working on.

You can also use the MCCC university cheats menu to have your sim join a university organization including the university’s secret society called The Order of Enchantment.

And once your sim is a part of an organization, they’ll get a new option in university cheats called ‘Organization Cheats‘ where you can cheat your sim’s organization rank!

And last, but certainly not least, you can give your sim every degree in the game by clicking on ‘Award All Degrees‘ in the University Cheats menu!

2. UI Cheats Extension

The next mod that you can use to cheat sims 4 university is the absolutely ESSENTIAL UI Cheats Extension mod.


To explain what this mod does in simplest terms, instead of having to type cheats codes into the cheats bar, you can visually click on things in the sims 4 UI (such as skills, needs, money, etc.) to alter them.

Here’s how you can do this for university:

Right-click on your sim’s degree program icon under class schedule to bring up a menu that will allow you to cheat your sim’s GPA to whatever you want it to be.

Do you want a brilliant, scholarly student with an A+ or an average class clown with a C? You now have the ability to easily, and quickly, create any type of sim you want!

You can also cheat your sim’s university course grade by right-clicking on one of their class icons.

This will bring up a menu that lets you change your sim’s class grade using a number scale of 1 to 100. Never fail a class again!

Finally, you can complete university tasks in a single click by simply right-clicking on them.

For example: right-click on ‘Take Final Exam‘ in your sim’s class schedule to immediately complete the final exam.

The same thing can be done to quickly complete university homework.

Isn’t university so easy when you have mods to help you out? 😉
