Six Simple Steps to Create Your Educational Plan

The following information will help you map out your path to graduation in a quarter-by-quarter template. Drafting this plan will help you make and meet educational goals, discern academic direction and register for classes. As part of the process, you will review your remaining degree requirements, determine if there are other courses outside of your major you would like to incorporate, and consider the order of your courses.

1. Educational Planning Grid

Use this document to start your own educational plan: Educational Plan 

Use this document to create a weekly schedule for your classes, work, and other activities: Weekly Schedule Handout

2. Program Evaluation

This document is updated in real-time and provides you with a full list of requirements needed to complete an SU degree for your major. To review your Program Evaluation, log into MySeattleU, go to the Student Planning section, and click on "Program Evaluation."

Utilizing your program evaluation, write the courses you have taken, and/or are registered for, on your Educational Planning Grid.

3. Academic Catalog

This online catalog explains the specific requirements for graduation included on your Program Evaluation, and includes the official course descriptions and prerequisites for the courses required by your major, school or college, and University Core.

Use the Catalog to check if the courses you need to take have required prerequisites.

4. Typical Program of Study & Projected 2-Year Course Offerings

These templates are designed to give you an idea of when and how to complete your degree requirements and tentative schedules of when courses will be offered. Your specific plan will vary.   

First, review the Program of Study for your major. Next, see when the courses you need may be offered in the Projected 2-Year Course Offering document.

5. Search for Classes on MySeattleU

The Search for Classes feature on MySeattleU provides all the course offerings for the current academic year. The next academic year's course offerings are typically published in April.

Type a particular subject or course title in the search bar. You can select a term in the left-side margin to filter for a particular quarter, or check the course description to see when the course is typically offered.

Now that you know when classes may be offered, start mapping out remaining degree requirements on your Educational Planning Grid.

6. Revise with Your Academic Advisor

Revisit your plan often. It is important to make updates throughout your academic journey.

Meet with your academic advisor to review your Educational Plan.
