Four Year Graduation Plan

Participation in the Southeastern Promise Program guarantees students a four year path to approved degree completion. 

 

Student Eligibility and Responsibilities

Any eligible student must elect to participate in the Southeastern Promise program.  To be eligible for the 2017 Southeastern Promise, the student must satisfy the following conditions:

  1. The student enrolls as a freshman in Fall 2017 and enrolls in the Southeastern Promise.  

  2. Be admitted to a major or as an undeclared student at the time of enrollment for the Fall 2017 semester.  Enrollment in non-degree, non-academic professional and public programs or other off-campus programs does not qualify. Enroll in at least 12 semester credit hours toward degree at Southeastern in the Fall 2017 semester.  Developmental courses, including Math 92, English 93, and any cross-enrolled developmental courses are not counted toward the 12 credit requirement.

 

To remain eligible for the Southeastern Promise: 2017 Freshman Four-Year Graduation Plan, the student must satisfy the following conditions:

  1. Successfully declare a major by the last day of the Summer 2018 semester if initially admitted to Southeastern as an undeclared student. This allows for major exploration.

  2. Successfully complete a minimum of one quarter of the applicable credits for the selected eligible degree program each academic year.  Most Southeastern undergraduate degree programs consist of 120 total credit hours requiring successful completion of at least 15 credit hours toward degree per semester or 30 credit hours toward degree per academic year (fall, spring, summer) for continued plan eligibility.

  3. Continuous enrollment each fall and spring during the term of the plan.  Summer enrollment is not required but credits completed during the summer can be used toward the minimum credits required for the selected eligible major.  Any other interruptions of attendance may result in disqualification from the plan.

  4. Remain in good academic standing (maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher) each semester during the term of the four-year agreement.

  5. Meet applicable university, college and department academic requirements pertaining to course and degree progress.

  6. Be advised and resolve any registration holds, such as advising holds and financial holds, that may delay timely enrollment. 

  7. Students participating in the Southeastern Promise should participate in the priority registration week to help ensure access to needed courses.

  8. Enroll in courses consistent with the four-year academic map for the selected major. 

  9. Enroll in additional minors, majors or certificates or change majors only if, at the time of change, the additional requirements can be met within the original four-year period.

  10. Monitor degree progress and act on advice provided by academic advisors to remain on track for four-year graduation.

  11. Submit annual applications for financial assistance in a timely manner, if applicable.
