Graduating on time is a high priority for all college students. Creating an effective degree plan is a big step towards completing requirements on time. With general education classes, institutional requirements, major courses, and possibly another major or a minor to juggle, college students are often required to take a large number of classes that are not always easy to remember. In addition, prospective college graduates also have to make sure they have the minimum number of credit hours completed prior to graduation in order to receive a degree. Completing a degree plan early in a student's career will help him stay on track towards graduation and plan ahead.
