U.Achieve

(Also known as DARS, Degree Audit Reporting System)

U.Achieve is a system employed by the University of San Diego for allocating and viewing academic standing to all students. By using U.Achieve, a student will be able to view a number of different pieces of information; most especially, they will be able to track their progress through their majors and minors and assess their overall academic standing.

Available to

Student, Staff, Faculty

Features

U.Achieve is the place to go in order for students to quickly and efficiently find all the information mentioned above. The U.Achieve program will assess all classes that have already been taken as well as present any future classes. It will also aggregate the data from all these pieces of information and present total GPAs, the total number of credits achieved, and the number of credits that is left.
It is linked to the student USD username and password combination, so logging in and getting an audit (or a processed statement) of one's academic standing is standard procedure.

Requirements

Must be currently registered as a student, advisor or authorized administrator

Data security restrictions

Access is restricted only to the student or the advisor of the student and administrators

How to use

The U.Achieve link is located in the “My Academics” link in the "Torero Hub" in the DARS/U.Achieve channel box. Upon clicking the link, one will be routed to an introductory page, with various links located on the left side. For all students, “Student Login” is the next step.
After logging in with one's USD username and password (the same as needed for the MySanDiego portal) the student will be able to request an audit for either their declared major/minor (or an undeclared audit, if the student has not declared yet) or select a program to see his or her standing. After selecting an audit, clicking the button “Request a New Audit” will send that request to the system. On the next screen, an audit with a button “View Audit” will appear after a few seconds. After selecting to view the audit, the student will be able to see various charts outlining his or her status in the program, as well as view completed classes and in which requirements each of them fall under. At the top is a chart with various GPA standings, as well.

Support

Should students find any problems with the system at any point, they can call the ITS Help Desk at (619) 260-7900 for assistance. From there, a capable staff of Student Techs will try to troubleshoot problems such as browser cache problems or other computer related issues. Documentation is available within the U.Achieve site, and faculty with access to the S network drive can find supplemental documentation there. The ERP team also provides training.
