It is highly important to follow the program plan during its different semesters as it was designed to prepare students in each stage to totally benefit from the following one. It is crucial for students to meet their academic advisor and follow their major study plan closely. This would typically include taking lower level courses in the first and second year, getting as much general education as possible, and then moving on to take major courses and possibly some minor courses. This is a very carefully structured process that students should closely adhere to.
