    Schedule Planner tips:

    schedule planner 2

    If you prefer the paper/pencil method, download a printable class schedule worksheet to insert the classes in which you plan to enroll and ensure they will not overlap. Students should then have alternate courses and times selected in case their first choices are not available or cancelled.

    Schedule Planner is a useful registration tool available to our current students via the WINGS Student Center and helps organize the next term's schedule based on selected courses. It generates multiple schedules in a flash for easy review (all possible schedule combinations are shown).

    • Customize your schedule by adding "breaks" to narrow in on your preferred schedule.
    • The Compare feature allows students to compare up to 4 schedules at one time.
    • Hover over the magnifying glass next to each schedule to see a time block at a glance.
    The Planner refreshes every 5 minutes during registration so students know quickly which classes are no longer available (closed). Your final preferred schedule can then be imported to your Shopping Cart for easy registration.
