Academic Map

This academic map is a suggested semester-by-semester schedule of courses based upon the AA degree requirements as outlined in the academic catalog. In order for you to graduate in two years, specific milestones, courses, and other requirements (e.g. prerequisites) must be met in a timely manner. To ensure that milestone courses are completed, it is important that you, when possible and appropriate, enroll in any needed developmental coursework during the first semester(s) of enrollment. Additionally, enrolling for courses during the summer session is an option and can reduce your regular course load and allow you to stay on track to graduate in two years. Finally, keep in mind this map does not substitute for academic advisement. If you have questions, see your advisor and refer to the MACC website for current information.
