Recommended Academic Plan
Recommended Academic Plans provide the possible order of courses students might follow as they pursue a particular degree. RAPs are proposed schedules only. Individual student's schedules might look different if -- in consultation with an academic adviser -- the student has created a different plan. Care should be taken when changing the order of courses, as the RAP takes into account prerequisites and course controls. Changing the order of a RAP might be in the student's best interests and can occur with an adviser's guidance. For the final work regarding the courses needed for graduation in a particular major, all students should consult the University Bulletin and their degree audit.
Students who began studying at Penn State summer 2018 or later should refer to the new suggested academic plans.
