SUGGESTED FOUR-YEAR MAJOR PLAN (ACADEMIC YEAR 2012-2013)

The suggested Four-Year Major Plan is a guide to help Caldwell University students complete their graduation requirements within four years. It is a suggested framework which builds upon the core curriculum as well as the required and elective courses within a student’s major. This suggested plan does not include developmental courses. Should developmental courses be required, students will need to work with their Academic Advisor to include those additional courses; this may delay graduation in four years. Students should always meet with their Academic Advisor to further individualize their academic plans and confirm the availability of courses and course sequencing. The following credits below include the minimum required courses and credits needed to graduate. Students enrolled as full-time status may take 12-18 credits a semester.

NOTE: This suggested Four-Year Major Plan applies to students who matriculated during the 2012-2013 academic year.
