Understanding Degree Plans (College Transfer & Career Technical)

 

Degree Plans (for program majors) outline what specific courses you need to take within your major (degree concentration).  All vary, in depth and scope and should be examined closely with your Academic Advisor to ensure you fully understand your degree plan.  You should NEVER enroll in a class without first examining your degree plan.  Some general specifics about degree plans are below.  To learn more specifics, view the catalog (which outlines the specifics of your degree plan) and run a STARS Report (if you are College Transfer student).  The STARS Report will help you to better interpret your degree plan against what your four-year transfer college wants you to take.  For questions, see your Academic Advisor .
