This is a summary of how to use My MU Plan to fill out your degree plan. Please note that My MU Plan is your official program evaluation (i.e., your official record) and the paper degree plan is a planning tool.
Step 1: Go to My MU Plan
Log into Marynet and click the blue ‘Marynet for Students’ box on the Main Menu page. (Second from the top option)
Then once at the ‘Marynet for Students’ home page click on ‘MU Plan- Planning Overview’ under the ‘Academic Planning’ section.
You will then be brought to the ‘Planning Overview’ page. From here, click on the ‘Go to My Progress’ link (step one in the planning overview).
Step 2: Look at My Progress
You should come to your progress page which includes all your degree’s requirements. First, look at the top of your My Progress view. This is where you will see what Catalog year you are currently on. Double-check that you are filling out the degree plan for the Catalog that matches what is listed in My MU Plan.
Next, scroll down to your University Requirements and the Liberal Arts Core requirements. Click on ‘Show details’ of your Liberal Arts Core requirements.
If you are a student who started your program in Spring 2022 or earlier, you are on the previous version of the Liberal Arts Core. The requirements showing in the My Progress view show exactly what you need for graduation right now.
Your Liberal Arts Core requirements should look something like this:
Remember, these are your current requirements for graduation. If you are interested in opting into the new Liberal Arts Core and new versions of your program, your graduation requirements will change.
Step 3: Begin Filling Out Degree Plan
Your next step is to take a copy of your current degree plan and a copy of the degree plan for the newest version of your major. Your degree plan was emailed to you by your academic advisor. We have provided an example of a Psychology program:
2021 – 2022 (previous year)
2022 – 2023 (newest version)
Next, select one of your Liberal Arts Core requirements. In this example, we will look at the History course. Since HI 110 is appearing in the Introductory History section, that means the course is counting for this requirement.
Select blue hyperlink for the history course you see pulling into your Introductory History section. This will open up that course’s course description.
You will see that the course description says this course is a Liberal Arts Core Designation: History – HI. (3). This means that your HI 110 course will count for the new History requirement in the new Liberal Arts Core. You can fill in this history course in both your current degree plan and the degree plan for the newest version of your major.
Repeat this step for all of your Liberal Arts Core classes. This will give you an idea of whether your previously-taken Liberal Arts Core classes will meet the new Liberal Arts Core requirements.
Next, scroll down to your Major requirements. Some of the newest versions of your program have new major requirements. If you switch to the new version of your major, you will need to complete all of those new requirements.
For our Psychology example: both degree plans show that PSY 101 is required for the major. If you completed PSY 101, you can note on both degree plans that this course is complete.
2021 – 2022 (old)
2022 – 2023 (new)
Repeat this step for any major requirements you have completed.
Step 4: Count Up Your Requirements
Next, count up all of the program requirements you have left on either degree plan. This will give you an idea of how many classes you have left to graduate for your current program and how many you will have left on the new program.
Step 5: Send Your Degree Plan To Your Advisor
Your next step is to send both of the filled-out degree plans to your academic advisor to review. Your advisor will double check that you have filled out the right classes in the right section of the degree plan.
