BS Three-Year Degree Plan: Sales Management Track

It is possible for you to graduate in six regular and three summer semesters. Keep in mind that this sample three-year plan assumes the following:

  • No remedial course work is required.
  • You do not fail any classes.
  • You do not change your major or minor.
  • You are willing to take classes each summer.

A three-year degree plan does not take into account dual credit or transfer credit that you may bring with you upon admission to the University. Course availability and prerequisites are subject to change, so consult with your advisor and review the projected course offerings when scheduling your classes.

Sample schedule

This is a model three-year degree plan. Your path to graduation may vary slightly based on factors such as college credit you earned while in high school, your choice of a minor or second major, and placement in English and mathematics.
