BA Information Technology Four Year Plan

Please note that Olivet University does not offer all the courses every quarter. The institution, however, consists of three-level course system. Course numbers range from 100-400. Each quarter, the institution will offer a few courses in each of these levels.

Because not all classes are offered each quarter, students are strongly recommended to meet with their advisors to plan their curricular schedules. This way, students will avoid prolonging their enrollment to finish required courses.

As a general rule, students are required to choose first-level courses before preceding to the next level of courses. Student advisors will help them to plan ahead and to successfully complete their study.
