Degree Tracker - For Students

The Emory Degree Tracker is a tool within OPUS, which allows Undergraduate, Laney’s 4+1/Graduate, Public Health, Graduate Business, Graduate Nursing, and Theology students, advisors, and administrators the ability to monitor student progress towards fulfillment of major, minor, and concentration requirements. Ultimately, this will better position the above Schools, users, and all involved stakeholders to realize a more successful advisement engagement and clearer pathways to on-time completion. We are excited that Degree Tracker was rolled out to over 75% of Emory’s academic entities and look forward to full utilization of the tool by all schools in the near future. We hope that students will find Degree Tracker beneficial as they transition through their academic journey and that it promotes the effort staff and administrators put in to facilitate students’ success.

I’m glad you asked! You may access the Emory Degree tracker by logging into Opus and following the directions in the Student Self-Service guide.

As often as you would like! The tool is available 24/7. However, we do recommend you review it at least twice a semester; before registration and after grades are posted.

The Advisement Report shows a student's progress against a currently declared program of study in their career (school). For instance, undergraduate students will be able to view their progress against their declared undergraduate major(s) and/or minor(s). The What-if report allows advisors and students to see how the classes a student has taken or is currently taking can be used to satisfy any program they have not yet declared. For instance, a student who is currently declared pre-med but is considering declaring as a 4+1 student for Cancer Biology/Translational Oncology can see what it would take to complete this program before declaring or committing to it.

The interactive report is the online version of the report you view in OPUS and expand or collapse as needed. The PDF is a full detail of the interactive report with all categories expanded. This report will often consist of several pages. The summary report is a 1-2 page PDF document that reports only the categories to be completed for a selected course of study and each category's current status.

The What-If feature is built into your audit. It is designed to give you the opportunity to see the requirements for different majors should you decide to change or add a Major or Minor during your academic career. You may simulate changes to your major, catalog year or even courses you’re thinking about taking in the future. To do so, refer to the How to run a What-If Report Guide.

As soon as it is processed by the Registrar’s Office. This usually takes about a week!

A green check indicates that a category or component of a category has been successfully completed. A yellow diamond indicates that a category or component of a category has not been completed yet, but that the student is actively working to complete it.

These reference numbers are there to identify each section of your report. They come in handy if you come across an issue you’d like to report or you may refer to them if there is a certain requirement you need to discuss with your advisor.

Yes. You can view GPA information in the audit within the relevant report categories.

Degree Tracker will be live for 4+1 programs (via Advisement Report for current students in their +1 year and via What-if report for students in years 1-4) beginning Oct 1, 2019.

Students in their +1 year will be able to see progress against their graduate programs using the Advisement Report. Students in their first four years of study (even if they've already been accepted to a 4+1 program), will only be able to track progress against their undergraduate degree using the Advisement Report, and will need to pull a What-if report to see their progress against their 4+1 graduate program.

Reach out to your program Administrator. They may have to process one or more exceptions to track your courses correctly.

You will need to run two different reports.

Additional questions may submitted to managed by the Emory Office of the University Registrar. Questions related to individual requirements or advisement may be forwarded on to a school administrator or advisor for further assistance.
