How to use the Degree Completion Plans

Begin by selecting the catalog year for your program.

From the drop down menu below, please choose your program to include concentration if applicable. Immediately following a Microsoft excel file will appear for download with your program of enrollment. Click "download map" hyperlink and open the file.

At the bottom of the excel page are various tabs. These tabs correspond with the term you begin the program ranging from Fall 1 (August) to Summer (May). For example if the MBA in Process Improvement is chosen and you begin the program in Winter 1 (January), please follow the corresponding tab at the bottom of the excel page.

Within each tab is a semester sequence which displays program completion in generally 18-21 months. The semesters are built in order so there is no need to alter the flow of semesters or select other tabs. Also as applicable by program within each tab is sequencing which displays program completion either on ground at NSU's main campus, and/or online. Scroll down the excel file within each tab to see all available format options.

At the bottom of each degree plan is a curriculum guide outlining a course legend which indicates which terms and formats all appropriate courses are offered.

Feel free to adjust the degree plan as needed by moving courses to different semesters as they fit your personal and professional needs. Please be sure the courses(s) are offered in the format and/or semester of your choosing. Also be mindful of prerequisite requirements as noted on the curriculum guide.

The degree completion plans are a suggested guide. Degree completion timelines can be shortened or lengthened by taking more or less courses in any term/academic year. Students should give special attention to concentration courses in any program as they may only be offered once per year. A delay in graduation may occur if courses are taken out of sequence.

Save the file to your desktop and refer to it often as it will guide you on what to register for in future terms. Please consult your academic advisor with any questions, concerns, or assistance needed in course planning.
