Sample plans are tools that show the sequencing of students’ academic requirements and co-curricular activities mapped across multiple sessions. Each sample plan is connected to an active Program of Study. However, each Program of Study may have multiple sample plans.  

Sample plans are intended to show one way to complete Program of Study requirements that will be applicable for a significant population of students. A student’s actual course selection and sequencing is likely to differ from the sample plan as they work with their advisor to customize their individual plan.
