First-Year Students, Sophomores, and Juniors
The two most important resources to ensure timely graduation are your APAS report and your adviser. While annual planning with an adviser is required for all students who have not completed 60 credits, it is recommended that all students regularly meet with their advisers to coordinate general degree requirements with major, minor, and licensure requirements that will lead to graduation. A course load of 15 to 18 credits each semester is generally required to graduate in four years. Keep your APAS report up-to-date with your major(s), and check it frequently to monitor progress in both your major and your general education requirements.
