Graduate Plan of Study

As of fall 2020.  the Graduate School will be replacing plan of study and amendment esign forms with Plans functionality in DegreeWorks.

Creating a New Plan

In DegreeWorks, select the Plans tab just below your name and ID at the top. You will be prompted to select a template, or create a blank plan from scratch. In most cases, starting with a template is the best choice.

 Select the correct program from the list of available templates and click Open at the top, then choose the start term.

The template should contain the most common terms attended for your program, and may contain some or all of the required courses. Courses can be dragged and dropped into different quarters, or can be chosen from a list and dragged into the appropriate quarter. 

 This video covers the basics:

 Planning in DegreeWorks (for students and advisors)

Notify the advisor as soon as your plan is created so the plan can be reviewed, launched and locked. 


 You can update a plan as needed by asking the advisor to unlock it and allow you to make changes, or ask the advisor to make the changes for you. You can also create a whole new plan if that is easier.
