With the changes to the general education curriculum and our institutional focus on identifying 15 credit course loads for students, this is an ideal time to reconfigure those old four-year plans in your department. Please take the time to craft a new four-year plan for your degree with a focus on:
- Balancing historically difficult courses
- Incorporating the new components of the general education curriculum
- Maintaining at least 15 credits in each semester
- Being mindful of course sequences and fall only/spring only course offerings
Once you’ve created a new plan, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will work with the Registrar’s Office to upload your plan into the Degree Audit software, which will make it possible for students to automatically load your pre-defined plan into their planner tab (training on this will be available next fall). Ultimately, by creating a clear and consistent plan for the students, if should make your life easier in the long run.
