Unofficial Degree Plans

Our unofficial degree plans serve as a course-planning tool and a reflection of what you might be expected to complete when filing your official degree plan. A degree plan is a list of the graduation requirements for each major which includes all course options in each of the component areas such as the core, major, minor, etc. These documents below are not official degree plans. Contact your advisor for the steps required to file your degree plan.

Major Academic Planners (Degree MAPs)

Our undergraduate degree major academic planners serve as a guide to keep you on track as you make your way toward filing your official degree plan. A Degree MAP is a semester-by-semester sequence of courses which a student needs to take in order to graduate on time. It suggests courses to complete each semester to be “on track” to graduation by taking the right courses in the right order.

To find the suggested Degree MAP for your area of study, explore the list below.
