General Information

Progression Plans are intended to provide a general road map related to the sequencing of courses. 

For a full description of degree requirements, review the university catalog.  To determine what requirements you may have already met through transfer credits, AP/IB courses, or test credits review your degree progress report.

Some courses may have pre-requisites and/or require appropriate placement scores in Mathematics and English.  If you do not have the appropriate placement or pre-requisite courses, you may have to take more courses than are presented on the Progression Plan. 

Not all classes are offered every term so use caution when changing the sequencing of courses.

For further clarification, refer to the catalog (link provided at the top of this page) or speak with an academic advisor.
