Hello Anastasia,
Thank you for your comment. I would recommend contacting your college. This might be an issue that they will need to know about. It would be helpful to other students if they are having the same issue.

English 102 or English comp 2 aren't showing up.

Hello Eli, Thank you for your comment. After you've selected the Manage Classes tile and selected Planner from the left-side navigation, select the Add from Course Catalog link. In the Search for Courses box--if you enter ENG then press enter, you'll be able to view a box to the left titled Subject. Select the option ENGL&/ English (CCN) from options listed inside the Subject box, and a list of ENGL& classes will appear based on the institution you have selected--and hopefully you'll be able to select ENGL& 102 -Composition II to add to your Planner. Thank you for your time Eli. --TMartin.

Is there a way to view the plan as a whole, instead of one quarter at a time?
When moving classes from Unassigned to a quarter, there are not enough options to plan out 2 years (only 3 quarters are listed), how do the additional quarters become an option for planning?

Hi Kristen--Thank you so much for your question. The Schedule Planner dates are controlled in the Display in Self-Service section of the Term/Session Table . The Student Planner gives the student access to all the courses needed to complete their program--ideal for long-term planning. It's different from the Shopping Cart, because the classes do not need to be scheduled in order for the student to plan and add their class(es). Thank you for your comments. Have a wonderful day.
