Degree Completion Planning

If you have 45 or more earned credits you must complete a Degree Completion Plan (DCP). Filing an Individualized Degree Completion Plan is required by Maryland Senate Bill 740, the Career and College Readiness and College Completion Act of 2013. A DCP can help students save time and money by articulating sequential coursework and planning a path to graduation. 

If you are new to the department and have completed a DCP with another department at Towson University, you are strongly encouraged to complete an updated DCP with your new advisor in the Family Studies and Community Development Department.

Instructions on how to fill out a Degree Completion Plan (PDF) are available for download.

The degree completion plan you will use depends on your catalog year and major and/or track. Find the appropriate DCP below:
