Sophomores must "nominate" a plan by April 1.
While the major provides depth, the IQ Curriculum (general education) requirements encourage you to develop a breadth of knowledge--the hallmark of a liberal arts education.
Students track their progress and plan ahead for general education courses through PlanIT, the online curriculum planner. Sophomores are recommended to start using PlanIT in the fall to help them select courses for spring. They are required to create a complete Plan and "nominate" it (or submit it for approval to their four-year advisor) by April 1.
A complete Plan shows one way to satisfy the requirements in time for graduation. Please note: it is just a plan, not a contract, and can it be updated or replaced as you find new and more interesting ways to complete requirements.
