Roadmap to Graduation

 

The Roadmap to Graduation is a document you fill out during your first term at WOU.  The intent of this document is to give each student a precise plan in order to visualize the path to graduation term by term.

Roadmap to Graduation

Step 1: Fill in your Major Courses

  1. The first step to creating your Roadmap to Graduation is to fill in your classes for your major.  Your first term will be the classes you are taking currently. To fill in the rest, open up the current degree plan for your major. These will be the courses that you need to take in order to complete your major. Pay special attention to the catalog year, as required courses can change from year to year.  If you are unsure of which catalog year to use, refer to DegreeWorks. Your academic year will be listed in each of the red header sections.
  2. Open the WOU Course Catalog for prerequisites so you can make sure to schedule courses in the correct order.
  3. Consult the course offerings by term document so that you can schedule the courses in the term that they are taught.

 

Step 2: Fill in your Minor Courses

  1. Look up the requirements for your minor.  Again, use the degree plans and pay special attention to the catalog year. (see Step 1, #1)
  2. Check the WOU Course Catalog for prerequisites for your minor courses.
  3. Consult the course offerings by term document so that you can schedule the courses in the term that they are taught.

Step 3: Fill in your LACC/Gen Ed Courses

The final step of completing your Roadmap to Graduation is to plan out your LACC/Gen Ed courses.  This can be more general.

  1. Use your DegreeWorks evaluation or the LACC Advising Guide (for your catalog year) to determine what LACC courses you still need to take.
  2. Schedule these courses on your Roadmap to Graduation, like the example below.  Scheduling this way leaves flexibility to chose classes each term to fit the category.
