Course Planner

If you are a current major the Course Planner is an electronic tool to assist you and your Faculty advisor in planning out your course load for the next several years. You should meet with your Faculty Advisor at least once a year to go over your course of plan for the next year and get advice on your elective courses. Please remember the CURRENT ACADEMIC YEAR is the only correct year in the course planner. The academic years following the current year are incorrect and should NEVER be counted on as true. Please use this as a tool to help map out your next several years but do not count on a course being taught that specific quarter. There are many game changers in schedule planning which may include faculty sabbaticals, research release, extended leaves etc. You can also access a hard copy printable version by clicking on any of the above majors or minor and clicking on the folded paper icon at the top right of the page.
