Academic Planning

What is Academic Planning?

Undergraduate students are encouraged to engage in intentional, proactive academic planning. Academic planning includes confirming academic program choice, identifying and understanding degree requirements, developing a course schedule for the upcoming semester, and developing a long-term plan for future semesters. We strongly recommend that you meet with your advisor a minimum of once per semester prior to registration to develop and/or review your academic plan.
