The MyDegrees Planner, also known as the Student Educational Planner, allows you to:
The Planner provides a great feature under the Requirements Section.
Course offerings differ by program but past course schedules are available and when the course was offered in previous years is one indicator of which term it may be offered in the future. For example, courses that have routinely been offered in winter term in past years have a good chance of being offered in winter terms again. Remember to look at the class plans by campus.
In MyDegrees, the @ symbol is a wildcard. For example, ANS @ means any courses with the ANS subject code, and ANS 2@ is any 200-level course with the ANS subject code.
Some plans are set up to begin in a fall term. If there is not an appropriate template for the term you will start, you can select your start term as the fall prior to your start and add requirements starting with the term you will begin taking courses.
This can be for a couple of reasons. If the courses are in a term that has passed or has started, the checklist will only use courses you completed or are currently registered. If you still plan to take those courses, you will need to place them in a future term in the plan.
Another reason courses may not show in your checklist is that you used a Bacc Core attribute for the requirement but did not use the Pointer feature. The checklist only picks up Bacc Core when a specific Bacc Core course is added or if you use the Pointer field in the Choice option. See FAQ What if I am not sure which Baccalaureate Core Course I want to take? above for directions.
