Degree Plans

Don't know the differences with GPS, ISP, and TAG? You've come to the right place.

GPS Plan

Review your current degree plan by visiting your ACES account. You can see where you have recently registered for classes, what requirements have been completed, and what you will need to complete to earn your degree.

ISP (Individual Success Plan)

Students should update their ISP each semester to be certain they stay on track with their chosen degree plans. During your first semester of classes, you meet with your institute advisor to start this process. You will get more information about this during your EDUC 1300 class.
