Self Service: Student Planning

What is Student Planning?

The Student Planning module is a part of the Self Service application that permits a student to view their degree progress, view their current term class schedule, search for courses and course sections, register and drop course sections, view grades, document advising decisions with advisors, and plan all future coursework on a term-by-term basis to facilitate degree completion.
