I would like to use a tool to add decimal degrees to a collection of point features in my map. I have tried using the 'Add XY Coordinates' tool, but it is only returning values in US Feet. 

There doesn't seem to be an option to change output units.

 

Am I missing something?

In the online help for the add xy coordinates tool online help, there is a link that points to the Output Coordinates System environment setting.  Have you given that a try to see if does what you need?

 

That should just about do it....

are you asking how to add a column to your table and calculate it to have lat/long from an existing column of decimal degrees?

It is a frustrating tool. I see you already accepted a solution. You can also do it in ArcMap and the calculate geometry tool and it works without the hoops
