If a student opts to do a concentration they usually do so in their junior year. Students will need to contact their advisor to add the concentration and to discuss the requirements. Students will then be placed into a new plan code that corresponds with the chosen concentration. The concentration will appear on the transcript once the graduation requirements are met.
