Step 1. Plan Your Courses

    • Select Student Planning
    • Click on “Go to Plan & Schedule”
  • Click on the “Self-Service User Guide” for a step-by-step guide on how to plan and schedule your courses
  • Add each class to your plan

Step 2. Request Advisor Approval

Now that you have planned your schedule, send the plan to your Advisor for review and approval. Your Advisor won’t know that you have planned courses unless you click the “Request Review” button.
