Degree Plan (Policy AA-5)

Prior to registration, the Registrars’ Office will complete a Degree Plan for all new students. The Degree Plan will include conditional admitted status, the courses that Clarkson College will accept in transfer, and the specific courses the student will be required to complete in order to meet graduation requirements.

Procedure:

Prior to the first semester of attendance each student will be assigned and meet with an academic advisor, who will assist the student in the completion of the Degree Plan course requirements.

The purpose of the Degree Plan is:

  1. To ensure the student has a plan for meeting all Clarkson College requirements for graduation in a timely and effective way;
  2. To provide the student a basis for monitoring his/her own progress; and
  3. To provide the student assurance his/her Degree Plan for meeting course and program requirements is accurate.

A Registrar’s Office Representative will sign the Degree Plan. The signed Degree Plan becomes the student’s plan for graduation and may not be changed without formal written approval by the Program Director. The information on the Degree Plan will be informational and not contractual in nature. Note: An Academic Plan is available in Self Service for students to track courses required for degree completion.
