The NEW degree evaluation tool, DegreeWorks, is now available in the University Portal, myODU. DegreeWorks is designed to assist advisors and students with course planning, measuring progress toward degree completion, and curriculum advising.
On the Academic tab in the portal, you will see a new channel called "DegreeWorks."
The Student Records section of LEO Online also includes a link to DegreeWorks.
The degree evaluation is based on catalog term and indicates degree requirement conditions that are "met" and "not met" by analyzing a student's grades and GPA, credit hours, and completed course work against University, college, and departmental requirements for specific courses/majors/programs. General Education, minor and cluster requirements are also included in the degree evaluation.
Degree Evaluation Report
A degree evaluation report is not an official evaluation, is subject to modification, and does not replace any requirements listed in the University Catalog. At this time, substitutions are being implemented into the DegreeWorks tool.
Students can use the DegreeWorks tool to see whether they are declared into a degree or still "intended" in the student information system.
A short YouTube video is available to help you navigate and interpret what you see in your DegreeWorks evaluation report.
A "what-if" analysis may be run to assist students who want to know the effect of changing their major or minor. NOTE: Students whose major is undeclared or "intended" should meet with the academic advisor for their major(s) to ensure that they are officially declared into a degree program.
Questions or Concerns?
Issues with the DegreeWorks application should be submitted to DegreeWorks@odu.edu for resolution. The system is constantly being updated to correct any errors or omissions in the rules.
Training on the new DegreeWorks tool, including refreshers, for faculty, advisors, and staff are available upon request.
