Academic Planning

Your faculty advisor is just that:  an advisor.  It’s your education and you should play the leading role in planning academic and co-curricular experiences that will prepare you to pursue your goals.    The following links provide information, worksheets, and other tools to assist you and your advisor as you plot a course to your future.

Graduation Requirements

You’re not in high school anymore!  It’s your responsibility to know the requirements for graduation and to track your progress toward fulfilling them.  Of course there is always help available—for your advisor, the chair in your major/minor program, and the registrar’s office.  The program evaluation tool in Webadvisor shows you which requirements you have completed so far.

Majors & Minors

Lewis & Clark offers 28 majors and 25 minors plus the option for a student designed major.  All students are required to declare a major when they have reached 45 credits, but we recommend you declare as soon as you have an idea about what you might like to pursue.  You can always change your mind if your interests change and declaring will put you in touch with faculty, students, staff, events, and opportunities that will help you test out if the major is right for you.

Transferring Credit

Sometimes students wish to supplement their L&C course work with classes from another institution.  You should always check with the registrar’s office before enrolling in a class elsewhere to determine if and how credits might transfer.

If you intend for the course to count towards your major, you must also check with the department chair.

Personal Planning Tools

Many faculty expect you will spend, on average, two to three hours a week outside of class for every hour you spend in class.  Do the math and you’ll see that being a student is a full-time commitment! These tools can help you plan for your academic and co-curricular commitments:
