What is an Academic Plan?
An Academic Plan is designed to aid students and their academic advisors in determining which degree requirements have been met, and the requirements that still need to be completed.
The Academic Plan is also designed to ensure students register in the correct units required for graduation.
An Academic Plan is not an official statement of work completed at ACK. The transcript is the official record of a student’s academic work.
