    • Additionally, each Degree Completion Plan has a course sequencing guide, which is a recommended registration guide created by the academic department. They have designed this guide to ensure that you are completing any necessary prerequisite courses, as the courses can build on one another. While you can choose to follow this recommendation, or you can plan your course registration according to your schedule, you will need to take any of the prerequisite courses first.
