Academic Advising Programs

Major Academic Plans

Each major at Chico State has a Major Academic Plan (MAP) to guide you toward completing all the requirements for your degree.

  • Use the 4-year MAP as a tool to help you graduate in four years!
  • Refer to your MAP to plan the sequence in which you take your courses.
  • Your MAP illustrates an efficient path toward completing your degree, but it is not set in stone. Most GE courses, and many major courses, are interchangeable throughout the various semesters.
  • Use your MAP to identify opportunities to take elective courses in addition to your major – perhaps incorporating a minor, certificate, study abroad, or internship.

Discuss your MAP and your options with an Advisor in Academic Advising Programs (SSC 220) and with your Major Advisor.
