Know where you are headed

Creating a written academic plan helps you visualize your degree goal and track your progress toward graduation.

We strongly encourage you to develop a 4-year academic plan that maps out in semester blocks all of the classes needed to complete your degree: UCORE options, your major requirements, and electives needed to reach at least 120 credits. 

Reviewing the plan regularly will help you sequence specific courses—especially those offered only once a year or on alternating years—and identify the best times for summer or winter session classes, internships or study abroad opportunities.
