Preparing a Degree Completion Plan for the Biology Major
A Degree Completion Plan shows the sequence of courses that a student plans to take
to complete their degree.
Maryland state law requires that all students have an approved Degree Completion Plan
by the midpoint of their sophomore year, i.e., when they have completed 45 units/credits
of coursework. Transfer students must complete a plan in their first semester at TU. The
Degree Completion Plan must be completed and approved before a student will be allowed
to register for courses in subsequent semesters.
Many Biology majors complete their plan as part of the BIOL 204 – Educational and
Career Planning for the Biology Major course. Students who have not taken BIOL 204
complete their plan by working with their academic advisor.
To complete your plan, start by reading the Instructions (link below). Also below
are forms you will need, as well as much information that will help you formulate
