Students need 120 hours to graduate from Morehouse College. It is recommended that every student build a four-year plan that maps out all standard curriculum, major and minor requirements. Beginning Fall 2017, these plans will be available through Degree Map, a powerful course planning application that helps students explore course pathways towards degree completion.

Degree Map provides timely information to students and limits the overwhelming choices of courses prior to registration. In addition to providing a structured pathway, Degree Map allows academic advisors to provide student-specific notes regarding courses, sequences, and recommendations for each semester. The student and the advisor can see what was advised previously and make appropriate changes quickly based on changing circumstances and the availability of courses.
