Degree Works is a web-based tool engineered to help students and advisers monitor students’ progress toward degree completion. Degree Works combines EOU’s degree requirements and individual student’s completed coursework into an easy-to-read worksheet.

Through Degree Works, students and advisers will be able to:
View the academic requirements for their degree program(s)
See how all completed courses apply to degree requirements

LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – From correspondence courses to streaming video, Eastern Oregon University has been a leader in providing access to quality education beyond the borders of a physical campus since 1979.
EOU also tops a new list of the 16 most economical colleges and universities in Oregon offering distance-learning options.
Affordable Colleges Online, a web resource for students and families, assigns rankings to public and private non-profit schools in all 50 U.S. states.
Online programs at over 2,000 accredited institutions were researched utilizing national data sources for tuition and fees charged during the 2012-13 academic year.
“Offering students great online programs is only half the battle,” said Dan Schuessler, founder of AC Online. “The colleges on our list offer students quality, flexibility and affordability.”
EOU’s undergraduate tuition for online and onsite courses is currently $138 per credit hour. Tuition and fees for this year total $7,533.
Onsite courses are defined as those available at EOU’s 16 regional centers across the state.
“Online and onsite programming is not just an additional modality for taking classes at EOU,” said Steve Adkison, provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs. “It is a core aspect of who we are as a university.”
EOU students pursuing their education from afar receive robust support including one-on-one interaction with their professors, access to academic advising, eTutoring and other services tailored for their unique needs.
“Each college and student services area takes an active role in providing high-quality, high-touch experiences for our students,” said Sharon Nelson, interim director of Regional Operations.
The university’s distance offerings have grown from one academic major to include 10 complete online degrees.
Today students from around the globe are studying anthropology/sociology, business administration, English/writing, fire services administration, history, liberal studies, philosophy, politics and economics, physical activity and health, psychology and public administration.
Add 18 different minors to the mix ranging from communications to Native American studies and clearly there are a lot of options.
“We foresee continued growth in the number of degree programs and associated minors and courses we offer for effective learning at a distance,” Adkison said.
Graduate degrees in teaching, science in education and business administration are also available onsite, and the first cohort of a new low-residency master of fine arts in creative writing is set to begin fall 2014.
