Academic Plan - Frequently Asked Questions

An academic plan helps you save time and money by taking the right classes and planning ahead. It’s a “road map” to help you stay on track to graduate. Students who started at Olympic College summer quarter 2011 or later and are seeking to obtain a degree or certificate are required to prepare an academic plan and have their faculty advisor approve their plan before reaching 45 credits

Faculty advisors are full time faculty in the discipline they teach in. If you are not sure who your faculty advisor is you can find your advisor by searching the degrees and certificate section. 

Only a faculty advisor in your major or program of study, degree or certificate program can approve your academic plan.

If you do not complete an academic plan and have it approved by your faculty advisor before completing 45 credits, a registration block will be placed on your next quarter registration. Meaning, you will be blocked from registering for classes until you have met this requirement.
