About the Graduate Assessment Process:
The Graduate Assessment is a University requirement for graduation, which consists of the Graduate Student Satisfaction Survey (GSSS). Graduate students who have applied for graduation by the deadline established by the Registrar's Office will receive a personal invitation to take the GSSS three weeks into the graduating semester. Graduating seniors who have not completed the GSSS will receive a reminder e-mail invitation, to their ODU e-mail address only, three weeks prior to graduation.
Graduating students applying for graduation after the deadline established by the Registrar's Office must complete the Assessment Request Form. All requests are processed within 1 business day, Monday through Friday.
After completing the GSSS, it is recommended that you close your browser for security purposes. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to each student's ODU e-mail address within 24 hours (Monday through Friday) of successfully completing the GSSS. Additionally, students' academic records on Leo Online will be updated within 24 hours, Monday through Friday, after successfully completing the survey.
Failure to complete the survey prior to the respective commencement ceremony will not impact the student's ability to participate in the ceremony. However, neither the final transcript nor the diploma will be issued until a student has completed his/her assessment.
LOST or RESEND INVITATIONS: Students who need an invitation to complete their GSSS need to complete the Assessment Request Form. All requests are processed within 1 business day, Monday through Friday.
VERIFYING COMPLETION OF THE ASSESSMENT: Students can check their test score screen in LEO Online to see if the Assessment appears there.
Students completing more than one graduate degree are required to complete a Graduate Assessment for each degree. When verifying this requirement has been met, please check the term the assessment was completed to ensure it was the final term of the current degree.
