Abbreviated Educational Plan: Identifies the courses a new student will take in their first one or two semesters. The plan may be developed by a student with or without the help of an academic counselor, and is not approved by a counselor.
Abbreviated educational plans are required for all new non-exempt students; however, a comprehensive educational plan will also satisfy this requirement.
Comprehensive (Active) Educational Plan: Identifies the courses a student must take to complete their informed program of study and reach their educational goals. The plan is generally at least two semesters long, and ideally will be long enough to identify everything a student must do to achieve their educational goal.
Good Academic Standing: Defined solely for purposes of assigning enrollment priority as a student who has not been placed on academic or progress probation or more serious academic sanction for two consecutive terms.
Students who are on probation for two consecutive terms will lose enrollment priority for the next term.
Informed Program of Study: Degree, certificate or transfer program of study that a student declares after completing 15 units of college coursework. The informed program of study is the basis for a student’s comprehensive educational plan.
Primary Semesters: fall and spring
