Your assigned faculty adviser is committed to guiding you in selecting classes to fulfill your degree requirements and to providing advice on research opportunities, how to apply for a job or graduate school, and any other challenges or concerns you may be facing. Students cannot register for classes without first meeting with their adviser.
Degree completion planning is a new advising process designed to more efficiently map your path towards graduation. It is required by Maryland Senate Bill 740, the Career and College Readiness and College Completion Act of 2013, which requires all students to file an Individualized Degree Completion Plan (IDCP) by the time they complete 45 credits.
An IDCP takes the suggested degree completion plan of your major (or concentration) and personalizes it for your academic career given your unique needs, goals and aspirations. This plan could help you save time and money by highlighting a more direct route towards degree completion and graduation.
Go to Towson Online Services, click on "Self Service," and then "Student Center." On the left hand side, select "Academic Requirements" from the drop-down menu.
Using your academic requirements, write down all required and "Gen Ed/University Core" courses that you have not completed.
Using the Prerequisite Checking Guide (PDF) write down the prerequisites for the courses you have not completed. Check to see if you have completed the prerequisites; if so, cross them off. If not, this will aid you in deciding which courses need to be completed first.
Suggested plans for completion of degree requirements in four years provide a potential template for your degree completion plan. View the four-year plan of study in the online undergraduate catalog:
