Step 5: Action Plan

Develop an Action Plan:

Once you have decided on an educational goal, it is important to know the requirements. You will create a Student Educational Plan (SEP) with a counselor to make an individual plan for your goal. The SEP will include your major specific courses, general education, and electives if needed. Before you meet with a counselor, you want to determine your goal. Do you want to graduate with an Associate's Degree (AA/AS)? Do you want to transfer or obtain an Associate's Degree for Transfer (ADT)? Use the guidelines below in to prepare for your plan of action.

  • What is your educational goal?
  • What is your major?;
  • Where do you want to transfer to?
  • Do you want to be a part-time or full-time student?

  • How often should I see my counselor?
  • When do I have to choose a major?
  • Can I earn a degree before I transfer?
  • What are the major differences in majors between two different schools?
  • Is my major impacted?
  • What type of GPA should I working toward for my intended university?

  • When do I transfer?
    • Every Student Educational Plan is different. We recommend visiting the Transfer Basics Page for additional information.
