Features of the Graduate Planner

The Planner is the tool students will use to plan the courses they intend to take and the terms they intend to take them. Advisors/DGPs/GSCs can view the planner, move courses to different terms within the planner, and delete planned courses from future terms. However, adding a course to the planner or making customizations must be done by the student via the student Planner. To make these updates administratively, the DGP/GSC would go directly to the administrative graduate degree audit.

Add a Minor

You can add a minor to a student’s planner using the Add Minor feature if their academic plan permits a minor. Students in academic plans that do not require a committee may not have a minor. Type in the name of the minor and click ‘Search Minors.’ Click on the appropriate minor to add it to the academic record. Note that you can add a minor, but to remove a minor requires a curriculum change form (found on the Graduate School Forms page).

Once a minor is added to a student’s record, you and the student will see a separate degree audit for the minor. A minor cannot be awarded unless the degree audit for the minor is complete (all requirements have been met).
