Advisor workshop: Learn how to use the academic planner feature in Campus ConnectionThe Academic Advising Committee, in collaboration with the Registrar’s Office, will conduct training for all advisors on how to use the academic planner in Campus Connection. The sessions will be Nov. 1 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. and Nov. 2 from noon to 1 p.m. Both sessions will cover the same information and will be in Old Main 405. The academic planner feature in Campus Connection is beneficial for students, advisors and departments! This feature allows students and advisors to work together in sequencing courses towards degree completion. Departments which encourage their advisees to use the planner may find it is a helpful tool when making decisions regarding course offerings for upcoming terms as reports can be run to indicate projected course enrollment for specific terms.
