If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Benjamin Franklin
Each school has created degree planning tools to help students plan their way to graduation. Advisors are here to help advise you along the way. While advisors will not choose classes for you or enroll you into classes, we are more than happy to offer suggestions, give you insight, and help you understand how to use these tools to stay on track towards the completion of your degree.
Degree Worksheets: Most majors/programs have degree worksheets that list requirements to complete the program. Some requirements have prescribed or specific courses that you have to take, while other requirements provide a list of options.
Degree Maps: These are four year suggested course sequences.
Several degree programs have a number of both general electives and upper division general electives required to meet the total number of credits needed to graduate. Some students plan to utilize these extra credits with an 18 credit minor.
Concentrations are used in the Interdisciplinary Studies major. The Interdisciplinary Studies program allows students to take a 24 credit concentration and 18 credit minor to create their own major. See an academic advisor for more information.
