Program Planning is the time when current students meet with their assigned advisor to plan their academic course schedule for the following semester. Program Planning takes place mid-semester of both Fall and Spring semesters. Be sure to pay attention to posted information around campus during these time periods. (See theAdvising Calendar for program planning dates and details.)
During program planning, SU students are responsible for making an appointment with their assigned advisor and arriving to the appointment prepared and on-time.
NOTE: Certain majors, depending on School, have different Program Planning practices. It is important to follow the procedures outlined by your academic department based on your major:
Before meeting with their advisor, students need to log intoGull Net, access their Student Center and review their Academic Requirements Report to note their remaining requirements and create a list of courses in which they might enroll.
Students who attend their program planning session will discuss their course selection and degree progression with their assigned advisor. Their advisor will activate them to be eligible to register online via Gull Net during their assigned pre-registration time period. Any holds on student accounts will prevent them from being able to register during pre-registration.
Students who fail to meet with their advisor and do not get activated for pre-registration WILL NOT be able to register during pre-registration. These students must wait until the open enrollment period (usually July or January) to register for classes.
