  • Create a Degree Plan with my Advisor

    The philosophy of the Academic Advising Office at CBU is “Advising is Teaching”. Thus. it is our desire to assist all students at CBU to learn their degree requirements and take ownership of their own personal degree plan.

    Creating a degree plan is helpful in gaining a better understanding of your graduation requirements. It will allow you to approach each registration season with a specific list of courses you will need to take. Follow the steps below to compile your degree planning resources and get started on a degree plan of your own!

    I would like to partner with you in creating a degree plan that you can reference throughout your career at CBU. The best way to do this will be to create a shared document where we both can reference for future semesters. I will send this to you. Please look over the following steps for how we will create a degree plan together.

    Step 1: Watch the instructional videos on how to understand your Major Planning Guide and Degree Guide. This information is vital to understand before creating a degree plan.

      1. Major Planning Guide
      2. Degree Guide

    Step 2: Once you have watched the Major Planning Guide and Degree Guide videos, complete the Degree Planning Worksheet Request From.

    Step 3: Receive Degree Planning Worksheet from Advisor. Expect this within 1 business day.

    Step 4: Plan out remaining semesters on shared Degree Planning Worksheet (Re-watch and reference videos if necessary).

    Step 5: Follow up with your Advisor to discuss and confirm accuracy of plan (email, in-person or virtual meeting).
