This eight-semester plan (see important details) is intended to guide a first-year student through a four-year undergraduate career, with completion of an academic major and all college-wide degree requirements. The plan is designed as an advising tool – a starting point for careful discussions between a student and his/her academic adviser. In consultation, the student and adviser will adjust the plan to accommodate the student’s prerequisite needs, transferred credits, and other such variables.

Students are responsible for reviewing their Progress Reports each semester to track their own progress toward degree requirements.
