Advising

Pieces of a puzzle

Student Planning A new level of course planning

LCSC is pleased to offer a new tool to students, Student Planning.  This new software works with the our current Warrior Web and is a "...web-based, self-service tool that helps students and institutions map and track course offerings to help them graduate in a timely fashion".  This allows a student to plan courses for their major from entry until graduation.  Student Planning "... help(s) students better understand pre-requisites and course sequencing... that helps students understand which courses are required as well as when they should be taken".   

  • When a student is preparing to meet with their advisor for pre-registration, the new Student Planning software allows a student to "load" planned courses and request a review of the courses by their advisor.  
  • The advisor can then look over what the student proposes, make suggestions and comments and then let the student know that their courses are approved for that semester.  
  • During advance registration and after open registration, the student can then register via the Student Planning software for the chosen and approved courses with the click of one button.
  • NOTE: Advisors will still need to release students and the Conditions of Registration are still required to be completed for the student to be eligible to register. Active holds may prevent registration. Instructions for Student Planning are available at planned workshops each semester, with a bit of help from their advisor and/or by reviewing a prepared set of instructions.
