What is an Individualized Plan?

Each student will have an individualized degree Plan, created in consultation with their advisor, that begins with the requirements in the Degree Audit, organized in a Roadmap format, but is tailored for each student's unique situation. For example, if you transfer to Kent State or bring post-secondary or AP credit as a new student, this will be accounted for in your degree audit and only the remaining unmet requirements (courses) will be reflected in your individualized degree Plan. The Plan can be adjusted to fit your needs, including shortening your program if you are able to graduate in a shorter timeframe, by adding summer terms or taking additional courses each term, or expanding your program to accommodate a work schedule or family responsibilities. Once approved, your individualized degree Plan is what you follow to graduation. Final graduation requirements, however, are confirmed by your degree audit.
