What is a Professional Education Planner?

A professional education planner is a structured tool designed to assist students in organizing and scheduling their academic coursework to meet their educational goals efficiently. It provides a comprehensive framework for tracking course requirements, progress toward degree completion, and aligning academic schedules with major, minor, and general education requirements. This planner is essential for ensuring students remain on track, make informed decisions about their course selections, and balance their academic workload with other responsibilities. It serves as a collaborative document reviewed by academic advisors to guide students through their academic journey.
