    Your Degree Guide is a personal statement that shows your requirements and progress to degree completion.  It includes three main sections: (1) your General Education requirements, (2) your major, concentration, and minor requirements, and (3) your unit and GPA requirements.

    Step-by-Step Instructions on Accessing and Reading your Degree Guide


    It's important that you refer not only to your Degree Guide in registering and planning, but that you also access your Major Planning Guide.  Your Major Planning Guide includes helpful information on which GE's might be met in your major, course offerings, requisites, recommended sequence, and unit requirements.  Please expand the next section to learn about your Major Planning Guide.

    In addition to your Degree Guide, your Major Planning Guide is helpful in that it provides a summary of your major and GE requirements, and a sample degree plan you might consider following.  Please see your Student Success Coach and refer to the University Catalog as offerings are occasionally subject to change.
