Course Selection & Planning

Course selection and planning are critical to progressing towards graduation and obtaining the skills and experiences needed to secure employment after graduation. Work with your Advisor to complete a graduation plan that will include a listing of recommended courses for each semester.

Considerations When Creating an Academic Plan:

  • Review and study the requirements of your major as well as the required pre-requisites for each course. Plan appropriately so you complete the necessary pre-requisites for your upper-level courses.
  • Your background, characteristics, and current circumstances. Consider your academic preparation, preferred learning style, preferred learning times of the day, strengths, weaknesses, lifestyles, work schedule, extracurricular demands, physical disability, or emotional status when selecting courses for each semester.
  • Student interests and goals. Consider your interests and goals to plan for internships, study abroad, and possible minors or general electives.
  • Course demands. Different courses may present different demands (ie. the amount of reading, writing, computing, or memorizing necessary, group work required, or laboratory time required). A well-planned schedule should balance the kinds of work demanded. You may need to learn more about a course by contacting your advisor or professor.
  • Course characteristics. Different courses offer different instructional environment. Even the same course may differ in format by section and/or delivery system. You should consider which course characteristics are most effective in helping you learn (ie. large class, small class, or online; lecture or discussion; scheduled meeting times or self-paced; traditional or technology-intensive; and types of projects, papers, and/or exams.) You may need to learn more about a course by contacting your advisor or professor.
  • Course availability and pre-requisites. A few courses are not offered every semester and some courses requires special academic preparation. A tentative, long-range plan should be established to allow for pre-requisites and to accommodate courses offered less frequently. Review the course rotation sheets provided for your major, schedule of courses on the Registrar’s website, and the course catalog for pre-requisite information.
  • Long-range plans. Complete a graduation plan that includes all of the semesters you need to graduate. Also review the recommendation plans provided by your advisor to consider how your course selections and credit load can affect your ability to attain your goals.
  • Time management ability. When planning, consider your demands both in and outside of the classroom. If you need assistance with time management, contact your Advisor for additional resources.
