Academic Planning

Academic Plans and Registration

Academic Planning is a degree planning tool that is designed to help students build a four-year plan and schedule their courses, supporting timely degree completion. While students are empowered to plan and schedule their upcoming academic terms, advisor-student collaboration throughout the planning process is encouraged. The tool is meant to serve as a shared workspace where advisors and students collaborate to foster ongoing communications and to encourage meaningful interactions.
