Plan of Study

Improve on-time graduation rates, save students money, and decrease dropouts and withdrawals.

Streamline Student Achievement

Support is critical for first-generation students, but many colleges lack the resources or advising staff to help students meet their goals. 

Clear learning goals and the ability to see how they are progressing toward those goals are key to student success.

A plan of study helps schools keep students on track to meet graduation requirements.
