Four Year Plan

Sample four year graduation plan. Students who receive credit for courses taken prior to matriculation may be able to reduce their course load or avoid taking summer classes if they have enough elective units to graduate. Students may choose to complete a GE cluster to satisfy five requirements (4 GEs and Writing II) with three classes. GE clusters also carry honors credit.

We strongly encourage students to develop a personal program plan in consultation with an academic adviser.
