Jump Start Your Third Year

JS3 Program is subject to change for Fall 2020 semester...

Stay Tune...

More information to come 

Students in the entering freshman class of 2019 are to meet with an academic advisor in their intended School during the 2020-21 academic year. We hope this connection with an advisor will help facilitate progress in your degree and support in the development of your educational goals.

You are required to participate in an activity that introduces you to a resource that is career-oriented on campus. That career can be to go into industry or continue into higher education. We would like for you to consider who on this campus can assist you with your future goals outside of advising in Engineering. See more events you can attend below.

You must bring the following to the meeting:

  1. A printed copy of your current Audit from MyDegreePath (or What-If Audit for your intended major)
  2. Complete the Jump Start Your 3rd Year Webform
    1. Part of your form requires you to attend one Career-Oriented event hosted by
      • Center for Career & Professional Advancement (i.e., Meet-ups, complete the career assessment and meet with a counselor),
      • Engineering Service Learning (i.e., workshops, special topics events),
      • Undergraduate Research Opportunities Center,
      • Study Abroad Program (i.e., info session),
      • or speak to a faculty member about your career/future aspirations,
      • Attend and ask questions at a Graduate Students’ Defense OR
      • Attend a conference, webinar, or a career-oriented event not listed above, you may write on the form.

 Please be prepared to discuss this further with your academic advisor.

  1. MyDegreePath.
    • Use MyDegreePath to complete a graduation plan which includes all of your remaining graduation requirements.  See checklists, flowcharts, and fall/spring only class list at as guides.   
    • Here is a step-by-step document on how to use MyDegreePath

You are expected to complete your graduation plan before your appointment.


Here are some resources to help you create your personalized Proposed Plan through Graduation:

Students who plan to complete their degrees in engineering majors:

Major Flow Charts — These documents will give you a suggested four-year plan as recommended by the faculty members in your major. If you will take a longer than four years to complete your degree, that’s OK, but you cannot take longer than 10 semesters (not counting summer)! There are prerequisite indicators on these charts to help you along. **Be sure to download the flow chart for your catalog year  2019-2020**

Audit — This document must be printed and you must bring it with you to your appointment. It will let you know all the requirements necessary to complete your major (and whether you’ve completed them).

Minors — If you have a declared minor, or plan on declaring a minor soon, you can find out more information about minors here:

Students who plan to complete their degrees outside the School of Engineering:

Majors — If you plan to change your major to something other than engineering, you can find out more information about how to build a personalized Proposed Plan through Graduation here:

School of Natural Sciences — You will find a full listing of what is required for any natural sciences major. 

School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts -  You will find a full listing of what is required for any School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts major. 

Audit – You should run a “What-If” Audit for your catalog year (2018) to see what requirements you have already completed toward your new major, and which requirements you still have remaining.
