The 4-year plan that appears below is a guide to aid students in course selection; individual preferences may lead students to deviate from this plan. In addition, NEU majors could easily complete a semester in LVC’s Study Abroad program during junior or senior year and still complete all graduation requirements within four years. Finally, students should consult their advisors each semester when planning their course schedules.
