Geology > Eight Semester Plan

This Eight Semester Plan is provided as a general guideline. It DOES NOT reduce the importance of careful discussions between a student and his or her academic advisor. Some degree requirements, such as those for upper division and liberal arts credits, may not be completely delineated in this plan. Students are responsible for reviewing their own Degree Audit Report each semester to track their own progress toward degree requirements. Please see additional disclaimers and information about these Eight Semester Plans, which are currently under development.
