A Student Education Plan (SEP) is a planning tool that you and your counselor create together based on your future academic and career goals.

*Effective Fall 2014 Priority Registration will be given to students who work with a counselor to develop a Student Education Plan, succeed in their classes and stay on track.

Abbreviated SEP: While completing the Online Orientation, students will participate in an interactive activity of planning their first semester classes.

Comprehensive SEP: Outlines a semester by semester plan of suggested course to take based on major, transfer plans and sequence of courses. A CSEP can only be completed during a 45 minute appointment with a counselor. Go to the book an appointment page.
