Undergraduate Degree Planner Message to Students

The following message will be sent tomorrow, Wednesday, March 19 to all students required to complete an online undergraduate degree plan:


All students entering Texas A&M University in fall 2013 or later are required to complete an online undergraduate degree plan. The Undergraduate Degree Planner is in Howdy on the My Record tab in the Undergraduate Degree Planner channel. Guides for using the Undergraduate Degree Planner are also available in Howdy.

Completing the degree plan is important as it will help you plan your courses and graduate in the least amount of time. Additional information, including deadlines, will be provided by your academic department. You will be blocked from registering for classes if you do not have an approved plan before the deadline set by your academic department.

You can create a self-approved degree plan by creating a plan that meets all degree requirements for your major. Plans that meet all degree requirements are automatically approved. If your degree plan does not meet all degree requirements, you must submit it to an advisor for review. You can check your approval status in Howdy on the Approval tab within the Undergraduate Degree Planner.

If you have questions about this requirement, please contact your academic advisor.
