Student Planning is an online tool available to NIC students to get the most out of your educational plan. Student Planning helps you work with your educational advisor, allows you to plan your courses for current and future terms, check on prerequisites, register for courses and track your progress – all in one place.
Through Student Planning you can:
Build your timetable and register
Student Planning streamlines the timetabling and registration process, saving you time. You can search for courses, create a schedule and register. Warning messages will pop up if there’s a scheduling conflict, making it easy to make sure all your classes fit in your timetable.
Registration is easy with a single click to register in all courses, or select each course individually to register one at a time.
Work with NIC advisors
Prepare for your advisor appointment by making notes detailing questions you want to ask and things you want to discuss. Following your meeting, your advisor will update the notes with a summary of what was discussed.
You can continue noting your questions and discussion points as reminders to yourself of things to do or questions to ask at your next advisor session.
Create a study plan
Plan the courses you’ll take as part of your credential. Through Student Planning you can do advanced course searches to find the required and elective courses you’re interested in. You can add courses to your schedule for the upcoming term or plan to take them in the future.
You can view your schedule in various convenient ways, such as weekly schedule and a timeline with multiple terms, to help with your planning.
Track your progress
Student Planning allows you to track your academic progress over multiple terms and years, which allows you to plan into the future and adapt your study plan as you progress through your program.
On track and on time indicators help you stay on track toward your goal, while ‘what-if’ analyses let you see how the courses you’ve already taken would apply to different programs or credentials.
You can access Student Planning through your myNIC account where you will also find detailed information about how to get the most out of the tool.
