Program of Study
A COA program of study is similar to a major. Each program of study has a curriculum guide with an outline of classes required to graduate, and is available as a printable PDF in the online catalog and on individual program of study web pages. You may also access the program evaluation in the Self Service site to view and print an evaluation of your progress toward completing requirements for a program of study.
