Jump Start Your Third Year

Each student in the entering freshman class of 2016 is required to meet with an academic advisor within his or her current school during the spring 2018 semester, and before registering in fall 2018 courses. We hope this connection with an advisor will give you a jump-start on your third year by facilitating progress toward your degree and support in the development of your educational goals.

In most cases, meetings will take no longer than 15 minutes of your time. When meeting with an advisor, you must bring the following:

  1. A printed copy of your current Audit through MyDegreePath (or What-If Audit for your expected major)
  2. A printed, completed Graduation Plan using MyDegreePath
    • Using MyDegreePath, complete a graduation plan which includes all of your remaining graduation requirements (you can find resources for how to create a Plan through Graduation here).
    • 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  2016-2017**

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 (applied mathematics, biological sciences, chemical sciences, earth system sciences, physics)

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 (anthropology, cognitive science [B.A. or B.S.], economics, English, history, management and business economics, political science, psychology, public health, sociology and Spanish)

Audit – You should run a “What-If” Audit for your catalog year (2016) to see what requirements you have already completed toward your new major, and which requirements you still have remaining.
