The Sage Course Planner is designed to help you get a clearer picture of the courses you've taken and the ones you should take next. It works by translating your Academic Evaluation into a format that's easier to read and understand.
Understand, however, that this is beta software. We think we've worked out all the bugs, but we can't be 100% sure. You should always double-check everything against your academic evaluation, which is the official, Sage Colleges record of these things. If you have questions, by all means ask your advisor.
The semester plan is fairly straightforward. It lists, semester by semester, the courses you need to take to complete your degree. Once you've completed a requirement, it indicates it in the column on the left along with the grade you received.
In general, all you have to do is work your way from top to bottom in the list. Once you've completed a semester, try to sign up for the courses listed in the following semester. Repeat until you graduate.
We understand: courses will fill up, or they might not fit your schedule. You may have transfer courses fill some of the gaps, but not others. Just try your best to stay on track and you should be okay. Here are a few tips:
If the course planner identifies any concerns with your current evaluation, it will list them at the bottom.
In most cases, the course planner should give you all the information you need to plan next semester's courses. But if you have any questions, please contact your advisor. He or she can help you interpret the plan and come up with a solution.
