Degree Map search (iGPS)

A Degree Map is a sample plan for students completing a selected major in four years. It is just one possibility. You will develop your own individual plan in consultation with your academic advisor. Through iGPS, you can access comprehensive information about degree requirements and upcoming course offerings, and then use that information to devise personalized programs of study.

To use the Degree Map search:

  1. Select "IU Bloomington" for campus.
  2. Select your school (e.g., "College of Arts and Sciences" or "College A&S -- The Media School)
  3. Choose "Student's Start Term" (from Summer 2022 and beyond)
