How Do I Aim 4 Four?

Plan Ahead:

  • Create a four-year graduation plan your freshman year, and take personal responsibility for achieving it.
  • Meet with Academic Advising and your major advisor every semester — they are your partners in creating your four-year graduation plan.
  • If you need help to be college-ready for math and English, take part in Early Start.
  • Learn how to use your Degree Progress Report.
  • Plan ahead if you want to study abroad or do an internship. Advisors can show you how to have a rich educational experience and still graduate in four years.
  • Use summer break and intersession to your advantage by taking classes to catch up or move ahead in degree progress.

Commit to It:

  • Enroll in and complete 15 units per semester.
  • Study 35 hours each week. Treat your classes like a job. To do well, you need to devote time—lots of time.
  • Identify and declare your major by your sophomore year.
  • Unsure what to major in? Seek help your freshman year.
