BS Three-Year Graduation Plan

The three-year graduation plan was created to demonstrate that it is possible for you to graduate in six regular and three summer semesters. However, a three-year graduation plan is not best suited for every student. It assumes:

  • No remedial course work is required.
  • The student does not fail any classes.
  • The student does not change either the major or minor.
  • The student is willing to take classes each summer.

Also, a three-year graduation plan does not take into account dual credit or transfer credit that you may bring with you upon admission to the University. Please remember that course availability and prerequisites are subject to change. Check out the course rotations before scheduling your classes and consult with your advisor when scheduling your classes.
