What is an alternate plan?

What is it?

An alternate plan is a grad plan other than your declared plan. You can make an alternate plan to help you with a variety of things, such as

  • planning your declared major with a backup plan option
  • planning your declared major with a new minor/cluster
  • planning your declared major with a new catalog year
  • planning a new major or emphasis to change your major or emphasis

What can I do with it?

If you want to change your major/emphasis/minor/cluster/catalog year, you do that with an alternate plan. 

You can have multiple plans to consider how life choices will impact your schooling, such as a mission, deferment, internship, pregnancy, or other matters.
You can compare your declared plan and any alternate plans side by side to look at differences in classes, credits per semester, and time to graduation.
