Y’all… I am so excited about this degree planning guide for college students that I’ve been working on!
I decided to offer this FOR FREE because I want students to be successful in college and having an organized schedule is one of the ways to do just that.
What Inspired the Degree Planning Guide?
I was a student worker for the dean’s office at my college and I saw student after student coming up to the desk to figure out how they could graduate on time. After asking a few questions, I found out that most of these students either trusted their advisor to tell them which courses to take, or they simply failed to pay attention to which classes they needed in order to finish their degree.
The staff in my office were as helpful as they could be to these students, but even with the extra help, some students still ended up graduating a semester late.
I don’t want that to be you!
What’s in the Guide?
I didn’t want to bore you to death with 100 pages of degree planning, so I got straight to the point and simply outlined those tips that I think are going to be most beneficial to you. It’s short, sweet, and to the point so that you don’t have to spend hours reading information that doesn’t apply to you.
I also included free worksheets to go along with the short guide so that you could follow along and actually have something tangible to look at. I even added in a blank monthly calendar so that you could print it off and keep track of any important dates you may have (*cough* course registration and exams).
This degree planning guide for college students is just one of the resources I’ve created. Be sure to also check out the free college student budgeting printable I made!
It may take a little practice to get your plan all setup, but I promise that if you stick with it, you’ll feel a lot less stressed later on when class registration starts. While everyone else is sitting there trying to figure out what to enroll in to satisfy their major and graduate on-time, you’ll already have a plan in place!
