A Program of Study is a merely a detailed roadmap.  Similar to an articulation an agreement, but much better and more practical for students to utilize the benefits.  Articulation agreements are often not understood or forgotten by high school students.  A Program of Study is a written authorization of specific courses needed and/or recommended.
