Definition Source

"An academic plan is an area of study—such as a major, minor, or specialization—that is within an academic program or within an academic career. A student can earn only one degree for a single academic plan. If the institution offers dual degrees, you must establish separate academic plans for each degree or you must create a combined degree, such as B.A./B.S. You can set up academic plans to award degrees, indicate completion of the academic program, or award intermediate certificates or degrees."[1]
