Building your Four-Year Academic Plan
The Four-Year Plan is used to help first-year students in their UNV classes to plan for their academic progression throughout their coursework at Mercer. The Four-Year Plan allows students to outline their transfer credit, general education requirements, major and minor coursework, and pre-professional goals while recognizing what should be achieved each semester as they work toward graduation requirements.
