Academic Plans

Academic Plans

Do you need an academic plan for Financial Aid, Workforce Services, Vocational Rehab, ROTC, or your employer? Follow these steps.

Step 1- Before meeting with an advisor, become familiar with the information in the Catalog and the Grad Map for the degree. 

Step 2 - Using both the Catalog and Grad Map, map out an academic plan using the course planner template.

Planning Tips

· For every credit hour in class, plan for a minimum of two hours out of class for homework when determining the number of courses (and credits) that will realistically fit into your work-life schedule each semester.

· Pay attention to when courses are typically taught.

· Look at each course in the catalog to see if the course requires a prerequisite or co-requisite course and map your plan in prerequisite order.

Step 3 – Schedule an academic plan advising appointment and bring your proposed plan to your advising appointment for review. Your advisor will discuss your plan and make changes if needed. The advisor will send the proposed plan to the faculty advisor to approve or revise.


Bounce Back

Bounce Back provides students whose institutional grade point average (GPA) has fallen below a 2.0 with support, information, and resources to improve their GPA and achieve good academic standing at Weber State University. Students are required to complete Bounce Back each time their academic standing drops from good to warning, warning to probation, or probation to suspension. Students who do not complete the Bounce Back program requirements receive a hold preventing future course registration.
