Academic Planning Tools

Students can use the Academic Planner to map out future semesters in their course of study at the University of Nevada.  Via the Plan By Requirements tool, students can run audits including planned coursework.  Students can access these tools by logging into MyNEVADA and navigating to their Student Center Dashboard.  Planning tools may be accessed by clicking [PLAN] or by navigating to Academic Planner in the drop down menu under the Academics section.

Navigate to My Course History and click on the display option [SHOW COURSES FROM MY PLANNER] to show the courses you have taken, the courses that are currently in progress, and the courses you are planning to enroll in and complete in the future.  You can sort results by term to  make sure that the courses you have planned will be taken in the correct sequence.  Use this feature to verify that you will have completed the prerequisites for a course in the correct sequence.  It is also another way to verify that you have assigned each course to a specific term.  Courses that are associated with the Spring 2019 term are courses that are unassigned.

Assuming you have carefully reviewed your audit with your academic advisor to verify the availability and sequencing of courses, when your report shows that you have completed all the requirements for graduation, the last term that you have planned coursework for is your expected graduation term.
