Degree Plans

A degree plan is a key to achieving the student’s academic goals. It describes the degree or certificate requirements and specifies courses selected to meet them. A plan is developed in consultation with an academic advisor. A plan should be prepared after a student is granted regular admission status and may be amended, if necessary. The plan and any amendments are recommended by the academic advisor, in consultation with the student. Final approval of plans and amendments rests with the appropriate academic director. For example, MSA plans must be approved by the MSA director. The academic advisor will determine when the plan will be sent to the academic director for approval. For review by the academic director, plans and amendments are forwarded to the Mount Pleasant office of Global Campus.
