What is Jump Start Your 3rd Year?

The purpose of this REQUIRED meeting is to provide the entering first-year class of Fall 2021 with an opportunity to discuss progress to degree and development of educational goals.

Completing Jump Start wil allow YOU to:

  • Identify resources available to help you track and sustain academic progress;
  • Outline your remaining semesters;
  • Determine how to organize and approach your academic plan utilizing your audit and MyDegreePath

 

What is required to complete my mandatory meeting?

  1. Review your current audit through MyDegreePath (or What-If Audit for your intended major)
  2. Prepare a graduation plan using MyDegreePath:
  • Using MyDegreePath, complete your graduation plan, which includes all of your remaining graduation requirements (you can find resources for how to creat a graduation plan here
    • When working on your graduation plan, you should not plan a semester for Fall 2022 since you are already enrolled in coursework. You are only planning for future terms.
  • You are expected to have a completed graduation plan before your meeting
