Recommended Academic Plans provide the possible order of courses students might follow as they pursue a particular degree. RAPs are proposed schedules only. Individual student's schedules might look different if -- in consultation with an academic adviser -- the student has created a different plan. Care should be taken when changing the order of courses, as the RAP takes into account prerequisites and course controls. Changing the other of a RAP might be in the student's best interests and can occur with an adviser's guidance. For the final work regarding the courses needed for graduation in a particular major, all students should consult the University Bulletin and their degree audit.
