Using the Planner

The Planner is a tool for you to use in building a list of classes that will meet your academic objectives. Only you may add or edit the information in your Planner. Academic Advisors and Administrators have the ability to view what is in your planner.

Your Planner will remain there for you to use, with the information you have placed there, for as long as you are an active student in the IU system. You may plan for a few courses or for a complete degree. Using information from your Academic Advisor or Academic Unit, determine what courses you should plan to take and use the Course Catalog Search button in the Planner to find them and add them to your Planner. You may then assign courses to a given term or leave them unassigned. You may add and remove courses as often as you wish. Note that the availability of a course during any given term is controlled by the academic unit and subject to change. While the Planner can be a useful tool, be sure to check course availability as the desired term approaches as you may need to make alternate plans if it is not offered.

  1. From the Student Center main page, click the Academic Planning link. This will take you to the initial page in the Planner.
  2. To place classes in your Planner, click “Course Catalog Search”.
  3. Select the Institution from the drop down list.
  4. You may either enter directly or use the search feature to enter Subject and Catalog Number.
  5. Click “Search”.
  6. When you find the class you want, click “Add To Planner”.
  7. Click Return to Planner. If you want a class other than this or wish to add another class you can do that from here.
  8. To remove a class from your Planner, click the trash can icon beside the appropriate class in the Delete column.
  9. To move classes to a specific term, select the desired classes (by clicking the checkbox in the Select column), select the appropriate term and click “Move”.
  10. Continue this process until all the classes you want to put in each term have been placed. You may also leave classes unassigned.
