The stressful process of mapping out plans for graduation, making course schedule selections and being prepared for advising appointments, just got a lot easier thanks to a new tool that is now available on Enroll & Pay website.
The new feature called My Planner was made available this semester as a way for students to map out their courses schedule for their entire four years of college. Students are now able to access the full Course Catalog, which should make the process of selecting classes a lot easier.
Planning ahead is always beneficial and students should definitely take advantage of this useful tool. Deciding what classes to take right before your enrollment date and advising meeting can be an overwhelming routine each semester, but now My Planner gives you the ability to personally take time to plan future semesters. Instead of heading into advising appointments bewildered as to what the next semester will bring, students have the opportunity to prepare their future course load ideas prior to their appointments.
The helpful resource that is My Planner provides students with their course history, the grades they received, as well as how often and when a specific class is offered. The interactive tool also allows students to search the online course catalog by subject alphabetically and then the course titles are listed. More features will be expected after user feedback is given.
Given the advantage of gathering personal course information ahead of time, there is still no excuse for students to not see their advisers. Even though you may have devised a four-year academic plan, there is still information only an adviser can provide. It is essential in fulfilling individual career goals that students seek out their advisers.
We can only praise and say thank you to the Student Information System for creating such a useful tool.
