Academic Advising

Academic Plan

Every Collins College student is required to have an Academic Plan (XLS) on file in the Academic Advising Office. An Academic Plan is an outline of classes that a student plans to take in order to complete her/his degree. The plan can be used to:

  • select and schedule classes that will lead to completion of degree requirements
  • provide a reference for scheduling classes 
  • list the classes already taken 
  • indicate the courses left to be completed before graduation

4-Year Road Map (Sample Plan)

Visit Academic Advising Tools for an example of how a student might fulfill the requirements needed for a degree in Hospitality Management.

Academic Plan Instructions

  • On the Academic Plan, indicate specific names of classes. For example: "English 204" would be a sufficient entry, while "GE Area C3" would not be an adequate description.
  • Student may complete, save and print the Excel version of the Academic Plan (shown in the samples).
    • In addition, the blank Academic Plan (XLS) form can be printed and/or saved to a computer if updates are needed later.
  • Students need to review their Academic Plan quarterly.

Petitions to Exceed the Unit Cap

The Chancellor’s Office placed a unit maximum of 17 units on quarter programs of 180 units.  HRT is one of these programs.  During the first part of registration, most students are limited to registering for 13 units.  Later during the registration period, the limit will rise to 17 units.  For a student who has applied to graduate, is in his or her final quarter, and whose Degree Progress Report shows that he or she requires 20 units or fewer to complete the degree will automatically be allowed to enroll in up to 20 units. 

There are only three, HRT exceptions below. For HRT students, the Associate Provost will only support these three exceptions.

Student athletes are required to enroll in a 2-unit KIN course tied to their sport. Associate Dean Michael Geoffrey will sign Unit Cap Petitions for HRT student athletes for 18 units maximum. Before the add/drop period begins in the first week of the quarter, please visit your faculty advisor with your portion of the Petition to Exceed the Unit Cap complete. Your faculty advisor will complete the enrolled units, completed unit, and GPA information requested in the advisor box. Once he or she signs the petition, take the petition to Geoffrey.

Seniors who have applied for and paid to graduate in a particular quarter, and you need 20 units in your final quarter to graduate - Geoffrey will sign a Unit Cap Petition for 18 units in your second-to-last quarter assuming two things. First, that one of the classes you need in the second-to-last quarter is HRT 341 (2 units). Second, your Overall GPA must be at or above 2.50. Please visit your faculty advisor with your portion of the Petition to Exceed the Unit Cap complete. Your faculty advisor will complete the enrolled units, completed unit, and GPA information requested in the advisor box. Once he or she signs the petition, bring the petition to me during the beginning of the add/drop period in the first week of the quarter. You need to get my signature and then you need to get the form to the Registrar’s Office before the end of the add/drop period.

Seniors planning to apply for and pay to participate early in June commencement, and you will return in summer or fall with 8 or fewer units to complete your degree, Geoffrey will sign a Unit Cap Petition for the spring quarter for 18 units maximum assuming two things.
