STUDENT SCHEDULE PLANNER
The Student Schedule Planner is a web-based schedule builder that presents students with all possible schedule options that are currently available for registration. With this tool, you can easily generate a class schedule that fits your individual needs without having to resort to pen and paper and trial-and-error.
How to Use Schedule Planner
Begin by logging into WebSIS. Go to Self-Service Banner > Student > Registration > Schedule Planner. Follow the prompts on this page to build your schedule.
To add courses, select a subject and course and click Add Course. Repeat this step to add each course to your schedule.
Use the Add Break button to block off times in your schedule. (These are times in which you do not want classes to be scheduled.)
Use the Generate Schedules button to view all possible schedules based on your criteria, and click View to display a detailed schedule.
When you are finished, click on the Shopping Cart button to send your schedule to a shopping cart and complete registration in WebSIS.
To begin, log into WebSIS and go to Student Menu > Registration Menu > Schedule Planner. Wait a few seconds for the page to redirect.
After you are redirected, you will be prompted to select a term. Click Save and Continue.
You will then be prompted to select a campus. Select "Main" unless you are in a special program which corresponds with one of the other options.
Clicking the Add Course button will take you to the Add Courses page, where you can search for courses by "Subject" or by "Gen Ed/Languages". Use the dropdowns to select a course and click the Add Course button to add it to your desired course list. You can also enter text into the Subject and Course dropdowns to search for the courses you are looking for.
Repeat this process using the Add Course button until you finish adding courses. Next, return to the front page by clicking the Schedule Builder Back button (not your browser Back button). (Note: You are not yet registered for these courses.)
Breaks allow you to block out times period where you do not want classes to be scheduled. Be careful not to schedule too much break time, or you may get fewer schedule results.
To add a break, click the Add Break button and choose a block of time for your Break. Click the Add Break button again to add it to your schedule.
If no schedules appear, a message will identify the time conflicts. Uncheck the least desired conflicting course. Alternately, you may delete the conflicting course and select an alternate course using the Add Course button.
You can preview a possible schedule by hovering your mouse over the preview icon or compare up to four schedules by checking the boxes in the list and clicking the Compare button.
Click on the "View" link to view a full-page schedule. Use the arrow buttons at the top of the page or the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate through each possible schedule from the generated list.
When you have chosen a schedule, click the Send to Shopping Cart button.
The Send to Shopping Cart button will take you to your Registration Cart. When you are ready, click the Register button to complete your registration. This will send the contents of your cart into WebSIS and register you for those courses.
***Important: If your Priority Registration time has not yet arrived, return to your Registration Cart when your time does arrive. Some courses in your cart may be full by this time. If so, clear them from your cart, return to Schedule Planner, and select from courses that are still available.
After you click the Register button, check your results carefully to make sure you are completely registered. Note that WebSIS enforces prerequisites, instructor approval requirements, and other restrictions.
Helpful Tips & Tricks
The "Options" button has other uses. If there are multiple sections of the same course, you can narrow down the selection before generating schedules. Un-checking boxes allows you to favor certain preferences.
Schedule Planner will show course prerequisites, if applicable, but these are not enforced until you save your Registration Cart and click the Register button in WebSIS.
Schedule Planner displays any sections with open seats, including any that might be reserved or require department approval. This may prevent you from adding these sections when you click the Register button in the Registration Cart. If this happens, you may return to Schedule Planner to select other courses. You may also check the Schedule of Classes, or "Search for Open Classes" in WebSIS to view footnotes and other indicators for sections that are restricted or have reserved seats.
The "lock" icon in Schedule Planner allows you to "lock in" a specific course on your schedule. Then you can view different schedule options for other courses, with the one course locked down.
Sign Out Button
The Sign Out button at the top right corner of Schedule Planner returns you to the WebSIS menu. It does not log you out of WebSIS.
Schedule Planner is also available to use through WebSIS on your mobile device!
We hope you enjoy this tool, which will make creating your schedule much more simple!
