Checkpoint charts display information about when you need to complete a specific requirement (either a single course or a choice among courses) in order to stay on track for four-year graduation. The charts represent the proper sequencing of course-taking to help you graduate in a timely way. They also show you which semesters a course is actually offered so that you can plan accordingly.

Please note: In some majors, not all major requirements are represented in the checkpoint chart. Consult your APAS report and your adviser to be sure that you complete all degree requirements.
