It is critical for students to follow the program plan during its different semesters because it is designed to prepare the students in each stage to completely benefit from the subsequent stages. Also, it is crucial for the student to meet his/her academic advisor and follow the study plan of his/her major closely. Ideally, this includes taking the lower level courses in the first and second year, attaining as much of the general education as possible, and then proceeding to take the major courses and possibly some minor courses. This is an intricately structured process that students should closely adhere to.
