Changes Made to the Undergraduate Degree Planner

Several changes have been made to the Undergraduate Degree Planner based on input from advisors.

  • On the Edit Plan tab, place-holder rows have been added for terms which do not have courses planned.  The term will be listed, and “No planned courses” will be displayed.
  • The Undergraduate Degree Planner will not allow students to add more than 99 planned courses.
  • The Template tab has been changed to check courses only when the student still needs to complete the course.  The course will only be checked if the student has not done one of the following:
    • Completed the course with a “D” or better
    • Transferred the course
    • Registered for the course
    • Added the course to their degree plan
