  • To access a menu within Student Educational Planning
    • Enter the student's ID number or name
    • Select the Action you would like to take/view from the Drop-Down menu. See detailed instructions below for each one.

Evaluate Program (Degree Audit)

  • This tool is used to review a student's progress in a program of study, and can also be used for 'what-if' planning if a student is considering a change of program.
    • The student's Active Program(s) will be displayed with a selection box for each if you wish to review their progress on an existing program as displayed on the degree audit.
      • Note: You may only select one program to evaluate at a time.
    • If you wish to evaluate a change in program, do not select an Active Program, but instead select a program from What if I changed my program of study? drop-down menu. This will show you how the student's completed credits would be applied to a new program if they changed their major using the Curriculum Change eForm.
    • What work do you want to include? defaults to All (includes planned)
  • This generates an Academic Evaluation report, similar to what students can see via their own DataVU account under Program Evaluation (degree audit). The report includes
    • A summary of overall and major GPAs and credits completed
    • Program requirements by category, and the student's progress in completing them
      • Courses that are in-progress or registered are included along with completed courses and denoted as such.
