Blog #4 – Student Planning Success!!!

Student planning has now been live for 1 full week!

19,937 undergraduate students were given access to Student Planning on March 2, 2016 as we activated the system. Four student demo sessions have been held and two more are scheduled for the week of March 21, 2016 when spring registration begins.

Students now have online degree planning, timetabling, and advanced registration functionality, as well as enhanced tools to communicate with their Advisors…. all available to them at the touch of their fingertips!

Since implementation last Wednesday, 3,071 students have already used it! We can also see that a total of 5,302 courses have been planned!

Here are some of the comments students have made about Student Planning:

1) “This student planning tool is awesome. I love how I could check out another degree program to see my progress and more options. “

2) “Planning is useful. I will be able to register on my date and time with it all in front of me…. Much less stressful.”

3) “I am further along the way to complete my degree than I thought. Wow.”

4) “I guess that means that I have to declare my major then.”

5) " Best thing ever. Now I can see my whole progress and plan my degree. It's super exciting".

6) " I love the unofficial transcript feature. It's so easy to access".

7) "To be able to visualize the degree progress has helped me to plan my future terms".

8) "Simple.... easy to use... love it" Other students have also remarked that they are happy that they can apply for graduation directly online.

Blog # 2 – Student Planning / Registration Upgrade

It’s almost here!  The new Student Planning online tool – the next generation of WebAdvisor – will be launched on March 2, 2016

On that day, you will be able to start accessing this great new tool by logging into WebAdvisor and then clicking on “Student Planning / Registration” under the Registration menu.

To see firsthand how Student Planning works and all the amazing things it can do, sign up NOW for one of the Information Sessions listed below.   When you register for an info session your name will be entered in a draw to receive a $10 Starbucks Gift Card. You must be present at the info session to win. 

What is Student Planning?    Student Planning is a web-based, self-service tool that helps you plan your courses in keeping with your degree and major requirements.  It also enables you to register for courses from an interactive timetable view.   

Student Planning is the next generation of WebAdvisor.  It updates/replaces many functions of the old WebAdvisor, including registration and finances, and adds some exciting new features too.  A few functions of the old WebAdvisor will remain in use for now; they will gradually be phased out in the future.

Student Planning lets you create a multi-year plan of all your courses, based on pre-requisites and on when courses are typically offered.   

Once the University releases the course offerings for a Term(s), you can plan the specific sections you want to take in the interactive timetable.   You can save your timetable plan and then you only need to click “Register” on your registration date/time.

In the meantime, the interactive view of the timetable lets you see how many students have already registered for a course. This allows you to plan for alternate courses prior to your tier registration date/time if a course is already full.

With each Term you register for, you can check to see if your course plan meets your degree and major requirements.

Blog #3 – Thank You

This has been a very long, complex, and labor intensive project spanning two and a half years. Many people, pan-university, were involved to help get us to where we are today. A high degree of collaboration, consultation, and dedicated teamwork has delivered a high quality toolkit directly into the hands of our students, enforcing, and contributing to our commitment to their academic success.

Please join me in offering a sincere, heartfelt thank you to those individuals who dedicated time and effort in support of this initiative. It is this type of dedication, commitment and true engagement that has made this such a success. Our thank you list is so large we thought it appropriate to formalize it in a brief presentation Student Planning Credits. This presentation will be posted on our project website in recognition of their efforts.

 

Thank you everyone!
