Is there an accessible version of Schedule Planner?

How do I view more information about a course?

You can find out more information about a class within Schedule Planner by clicking on the blue Information icon next to a course.  In your course grid on the Home page, clicking on the Info icon will show you the course title and course description.  In the section view after clicking on Options or when viewing a potential schedule, clicking on the Info icon will show you additional course information such as fees, footnotes, meeting dates and credits.

Does building a schedule in Schedule Planner mean that I am registered?

No, building a schedule in Schedule Planner does not mean that you are registered. You are not registered until you successfully add the courses from your Shopping Cart via the "Register" or "Add to Worksheet" button. These options will bring you to the Banweb registration system where you will add your classes from Class Scheduler, make changes to existing registration, and/or review potential registration errors. Once you have added your classes in Banweb, you have successfully registered.

Does adding to the Shopping Cart mean that I have to pay now?

You will not be required to pay at the time you add courses to your Shopping Cart. The Registration Shopping Cart is the tool that brings your Schedule Planner courses to Banweb in order to complete registration. After registration, the normal payment deadlines will apply.

I built my schedule in Schedule Planner, why can't I register?

Schedule Planner is available for each term on the day the Schedule of Classes for that term is available online. This is two weeks before priority registration opens. While you can build a schedule in Schedule Planner and save it in your cart, you will only be able to add these classes on or after the first day of your priority registration window.

Other reasons registration could be prohibited include closed sections, course restrictions or a hold on your account. Please carefully review registration errors during the registration process for more information.

What if I can't get the schedule I want?

It is not guaranteed that you will be able to register for the exact schedule you want. Sometimes courses are full or not available in the time or term that you intended to register. It is important to have alternate courses available to help build your schedule. Also, flexibility with course and break times can help you build the schedule you need.

Why does my schedule include the lecture section of a given course when I only searched for the course as Fully Online or Hybrid?

You can search for courses that are Fully Online or Hybrid on the Add Course page. It is important to note that courses added using this search may have multiple sections and not all will necessarily be Fully Online or Hybrid. To make sure that only Fully Online or Hybrid sections are included in your schedules, click on Options from the home page and uncheck all sections that are not Fully Online or Hybrid before you Generate Schedules.

How do I clear the cart and start over?

You can clear your entire cart by clicking the "Banweb" link at the top right of Schedule Planner. This will take you to the Banweb Schedule Planner Registration Cart where you can click the "clear cart" button. Clearing your cart does not mean that you will be dropped from courses you are already registered for.

What is class padding?

Class padding allows students to input time needed between classes. This makes it easier to plan for required travel time or breaks between classes. The default for Class Padding is 0 minutes. Click the Advanced Options tab on the home page to edit Class Padding.

Can I filter a course in my Courses list by instructor?

Yes. From the home page, click Options next to the course, then select Advanced Filters. Click in the box next to Instructors and all possible instructors will populate. Select one or more instructors and select Save Filters. To remove the filter, simply click on Advanced Filters and click the 'x' next to the instructor(s) that you would like to remove. Then select Save Filters.
