BS Four-Year Degree Plan

This is a model four-year degree plan. Your path to graduation may vary slightly based on factors such as college credit you earned while in high school, your choice of a minor or second major, and placement in English and mathematics.

Sample schedule

This plan assumes an 18-hour minor. Adjustments can be made in consultation with your advisor if your chosen minor requires different hours. A projected course offering list is provided on the course rotation page.

The following degree plan is based on the general education program instituted in fall 2014. For the previous general education requirements, please access these Student Transition Resources.
