Student Planning

Student Planning is a module in Self Service that will allow students and advisors to actively engage in the registration and advising process.

Student Planning provides you with a comprehensive list of program requirements, so that, as you register for courses, you can be sure that you are enrolling in classes that will meet those requirements. Not only will you be able to create an academic plan for the upcoming term for which you will register, but you can plan out future semesters so that you know what to expect with your academic course work. You will be able to easily monitor your progress toward your degree/certificate, as well as communicate with your advisor, all through Student Planning.

Declaring Your Major

All students are admitted to North Park as “undeclared majors.” North Park University encourages all undergraduates to declare a major by the end of their first year as a student. When students have decided which major they would like to pursue, they must formally go through the major declaration process.
