Program planning guides
Your Program Planning Guide has been designed for you as a resource to help you track the completion of your undergraduate program requirements.
Find your program planning guide below, download, and save a copy. Match the courses you have already taken or have received transfer credit for (recorded on your transcript) against the courses you need to meet your program requirements. You can download an unofficial transcript from AUArts webService My Apps.
For assistance with your program planning, contact a Student Academic Advisor.
To help plan out your week, print off the Academic Weekly Planner.
Follow the Program Planning Guide in effect for the most recent year of admission to your program (Degree + Major). See Academic Regulations: Degree Program Requirements - Year of the Academic Calendar in the AUArts Academic Calendar for more information.
