Subject Line: Online Student Planning - Registration Upgrade

Hello *Student Name*

It is one month away!  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 in to WebAdvisor and then clicking on "Student Planning" under the Registration menu.

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

A web-based, self-service tool, "Student Planning" helps you plan your courses in keeping with your degree and major requirements.  Student Planning is the new registration system that enables you to register for courses from an interactive timetable view.   All this in the palm of your hand - Student Planning can be accessed from your mobile device.

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.

An online PDF of available Spring Term courses will be available on the university website early February.
