The Sims 4 Discover University Cheats

The Sims 4 Discover University Expansion Pack is one of the most challenging pack in the series. We totally understand if you want to skip out on University but still want that degree, turn your Sim automatically into a Servo or help them progress in the new careers faster.

We’ve compiled a full list of new cheats that come with the pack down below. Huge thanks to @Dragonfreaky & Sims Online for helping uncover the Degree Cheats!

    • No. However, mods like Basemental Drugs and kawaiistacy’s Slice of Life allow for “juiced/drunk” moodlet overrides. These mods have to be updated with patch updates, though, to ensure they run properly. (You’d think with all the juice-oriented objects Sims would be able to, but…)

    • the hidden alc in one globe from an older sims pack makes my sims quite addicted even without mods…they usually get a special feeling happy modlet too that i read as being drunk even though ea does not use the word being drunk

  • I am having a problem with the sims 4 University University and city living the elevators do not work so they can not go to work or class. Can you please help me

    • I’m not sure exactly how to fix the elevators, but you can always turn cheats on and click on the area you want to go while holding shift and press “Teleport Here” to get to places quickly.

    • If you are living in a dorm, there is no option to activate. Or at least that was for me (read it on somewhere else too). You need to live at a house you own.

  • Has anyone had any problems with sims not being able to get promoted to the final lvl of soccer?

    I was about to when my game randomly glitched at almost the end of term 2. He has full performance but in he is in his final term now and since the glitch it’s not even showing MVP as the next lvl when I hover over.

  • Is there a cheat to remove a degree? My Sim’s pre-made partner did a villainy degree and now I’m struggling to get him on the course I want him to do

    • I need an answer to this too! I wanted to play a sim but they were already doing villainy degree and I don’t want them to. I just want to reset and start over

    • Also very much wanting this. It looks like we’ll have to wait for modders to kick this in though. I hate how there’s no option to use sims as template and not have all the previous play stuff attached. I just want the outfits, and appearance nothing else lol

      • I mean, are they in your household? You could click on the phone and have him “drop out of university”, then reapply for the degree you want.

  • I like the university pack so far, but I think they should have let players be involved in going to classes and having a goal to complete it other than homework.

    • Hey, try testing the command ‘testingcheats true’ and then type in the command you want, if the cheats are not enabled, then they wont work. However, if you have tried to give yourself a degree and no notif pops up, then check under the tab where your sims age and traits are, the degrees should be listed there :) I hope this helps you out!

    • Hey, try testing the command ‘testingcheats true’ and then type in the command you want, if the cheats are not enabled, then they wont work. Check under the tab where your sims age and traits are, the degrees should be listed there :) I hope this helps you out!

    • maybe try restarting your game? i thought it didn’t work for me at first, but i checked under the simology tab, down at the bottom where you see your needs and stuff, and the degrees were there, maybe try copying and pasting the command, and make sure the command works with the uni you’re attending too? also, if you have any mods, consider temporarily disabling them, some sort of code might be contradicting the ones for the cheats to work??

  • Is there a way to cheat your sim’s GPA up? My sim was doing so well in the first simester (get it? …shut up, it was hilarious) but then she got a bit caught up in parties and now she has “a risk of failing” so… help? Thanks, this would be really helpful!
