As early as possible after deciding upon a major field, students should, in consultation with their faculty advisors, plan the remainder of their degree programs, so that they may proceed in an orderly way to meet major and degree requirements. Students must file their degree plans, approved by their advisors and endorsed by the Registrar, in the Registrar’s Office before registering for the fall semester of their senior year. If not received by the day before the start of fall registration, a hold will be placed on the student’s account until degree plan is turned in to the Registrar’s Office. Junior and senior transfers are expected to file a degree plan before the end of their first semester of residency. Most students find it advisable to file a degree plan upon declaring a major.
