GRADUATION PLANS are required by the University - before declaring or changing majors - to ensure that you make continuous progress towards your degree. Graduation plans help you make the most of your undergraduate education by accounting for your requirements and by serving as a guide through your academic career. Your plan will likely change, but by planning ahead for study abroad, internships, part-time jobs, and campus activities, you will have a better idea of what your future looks like in ENSP.
Approaching 40 credits? ENSP students with more than 40 credits completed must complete a graduation plan for their intended concentration and submit it to Angela prior to pre-registration advising.

How to create a graduation plan:
Step-by-step infographic on this process can be found HERE.
1. GET YOUR DOCUMENTS TOGETHER. I recommend printing all documents out so you can write directly on them!
|2. CHECK OFF THE COURSES YOU HAVE COMPLETED using the Degree Requirements sheet for your intended concentration and your unofficial transcript.|
3. WRITE YOUR REMAINING COURSES into your BLANK graduation plan template
4. REVIEW YOUR PLAN
|5. TYPE YOUR PLAN INTO THE TEMPLATE, THEN SAVE IT TO YOUR COMPUTER|
|6. EMAIL your plan to Angela (in WORD format - NO PDFs please!). Feel free to type questions in your e-mail message or on your worksheet when you submit your plan.|
What happens next?
ANGELA WILL REVIEW YOUR PLAN to be sure:
Note: If your plan needs minor "tweaks," Angela will make them and explain what she did. If your plan needs major revisions, she will return it to you for re-submission.
AFTER YOUR GRADUATION PLAN IS APPROVED: you will receive a copy of it by e-mail and you will be formally declared into your concentration. You are responsible for understanding any changes Angela made to your plan, so please read your "Declaration Message" carefully. Your new advisor and College will also receive a copy of your plan.
I transferred in 30 AP credits! So does that mean I have to declare my concentration during the second semester of my Freshmen year?
- Nope, students with many AP credits may have until spring of sophomore year to declare a concentration if they wish.
Can I make changes to my plan after it's been approved?
- Of course, students may make changes to their approved plan; however, it is the student's responsibility to be aware of and meet remaining graduation requirements.
Even though I have a new Advising College, am I still a part of ENSP? What will by diploma say?
- YES! Declared students will continue to receive ENSP advising messages; and ENSP program staff remains available to you as consultants, though most final decisions regarding requirements will rest with your new department and college. You will graduate from your new department and college with a B.S. in Environmental Science and Policy: Concentration in __________.
