Below is a sample degree plan that can be used as a guide to identify courses required to fulfill the major and other requirements needed for degree completion. The following is only an example and represents a possible course sequence for first-year students entering UW-Platteville in the fall term. The major requirements do not add up to the 120 credits needed for graduation. See your advisor for additional guidance. A student's actual degree plan may differ depending on the course of study selected (emphasis, second major, minor, etc.), placement scores, and incoming credits (transfer, AP, etc.). Students should consult their program advisor(s) to ensure that they have the most accurate and up-to-date information available about a particular four-year degree option.
This sample plan assumes readiness for each course and/or major plan. Some courses may not be offered every term. All courses may not be available at all campuses and/or in all formats.
Students should use the Academic Advisement Report (AAR) in PASS and work closely with their advisor(s) to ensure completion of all requirements in a timely manner.
Efficient progression through the major and general education results in 119 credits. Most students will pursue a minor in an additional area to reach the 120 credit requirement to graduate and the 150 credit requirement to sit for the CPA exam.
Bachelor of Science students who have not maintained a “C” or higher average in one year (2 semesters) of high school foreign language course must complete a minimum of one semester in a university-level foreign language with a grade of “C” or better.
