PLAN Requirements for [email protected] Students

PLAN (Purpose Leadership ActioN) is the Simmons undergraduate general education program. Some PLAN requirements can be fulfilled with courses required for this major, as indicated below. Additional PLAN requirements may be fulfilled through electives. PLAN requirements, with the exception of the capstone, are waived for students who have an associate’s degree from an accredited instruction. We highly recommend that you work closely with your advisor(s) to choose all of your courses.
