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.

Notes

* If the GE III ART is a hands-on, experiential course, it will count toward the CHS Arts and Recreation requirement.

** American Sign Language may be used to fulfill the Foreign Language requirements "in programs leading to careers in social services" (Advising Handbook, p. 15) by petitioning the Dean of Liberal Arts & Sciences. American Sign Language counts as a CHS cognate requirement.

*** Many DIVR courses fulfill the CHS cognate requirement and Intro to Human Services fulfills GE III DIVR.
