The My Academic Plan (MAP) serves as a guideline to graduate in four semesters. The Key Milestones/Prerequisites listed for each semester highlight significant achievements that must be completed in the degree track. Students who do not follow the four-semester plan and/or who do not complete identified milestones may jeopardize their financial aid (if applicable) and/or delay graduation.
Northark recognizes the important connection between student success and academic preparedness. Students may be required to complete one or more of the following courses before enrolling in the MAP sequence of courses. Summer and/or intercession courses may be required to graduate within four semesters. Developmental course credits earned do not count towards degree completion requirements.
