How To Complete an Academic Plan
This PowerPoint presentation provides step-by-step instructions on how to complete your academic plan.
Academic plans for Mechanical (ME), Industrial (IE), Manufacturing (MfgE), and Energy System Engineering (ESE) students are located on the School of MIME Undergraduate Programs website.
An Academic Plan is your personal two-year course schedule designed to help you think in advance about when you will take courses. It includes information about:
Courses required for degree completion
Prerequisites of each course
Number of credits of each course
Courses completed “check box”
Terms courses are offered
Courses being taken later “check box”
A total credit load for each term
Why We Use Them
When to Submit a Plan
Whenever you make significant changes to your plan.
When meeting with your advisor.
Bring your academic plan with you to your advising appointments.
Reminder: You must have an updated academic plan in your student file in order to receive your registration PIN.
A Program Guide is designed to show you the order in which we suggest that you take certain courses.
It is helpful to refer to a Program Guide when completing your academic plan.
A Program Guide contains a quick description of the major and course requirements. It also outlines when students should plan on taking courses.
Each Program Guide contains a non-MECOP and MECOP plan.
