Plans of Study

Most NSU programs can be completed in four years. The Plans of Study posted below are examples of how this can be done.

Plans of study are a suggested framework that includes general education and major requirements.  The plans don’t guarantee course availability, and may require adjustment.  Students with transfer credits will need to adjust their plans. Students placing into pre-general education courses also will need to adjust their plans.
