Major Academic Plans (MAPs)

MAPs use catalog information to display courses for a specified degree in a semester by semester 4 year - (example only) efficient strategy.

MAPs have a common, uniform appearance with an organized overview of degree and general education requirements including credit limits, pre-major and major courses, electives, and the upper division credits required for graduation. 

  • MAPs assist students in developing a plan for the completion of degree requirements.
  • Advisors use MAPs to explain topics like credit load, lower division, upper division, prerequisites, corequisites, electives, etc.

Students can visually compare MAP requirements to assist in making informed choices about majors. Students will meet with their advisor to customize a MAP for individual academic goals.
