MyPlanner

MyPlanner is a new interactive online tool for undergraduate students to map their entire academic path to graduation.  Requirements for your major, minor (if applicable), and general education are displayed in a recommended sequence using information from your student record. It even recognizes the courses you've already taken at SJSU, test credit, transfer credit, course substitutions, and prerequisites to recommend an education plan designed just for you!

MyRoadmap

Most degrees at SJSU are 120 units. This means, to stay on track to graduate in 4 years for frosh and 2 for transfers, you should be taking on average 15 units per semester that counts towards your degree. You may also want to take other units that will help your success such as course support workshops, developmental courses, or courses based on your interests. MyRoadmap shows a 4 year plan to your degree with the required courses in your major and needed order based on pre-requisites.

SpartaTrack: Career Plan for Students

Now is the time to be thinking about and planning what you will do after you graduate. This checklist will guide you through the important steps needed to lay a strong foundation for your dream career.

 

Steps to Graduation

This publication is designed to make sure your experience here at SJSU is a successful one and to keep you on track to graduate in a timely manner. Four years if you're starting as a freshmen and two years if you're a transfer. 

 

Time Management

In order to figure out the right number of units for you to take each semester, you need to determine how many hours you have available to study and be successful in each class. This time management worksheet [pdf] (developed by EOP) can help you determine the right number of units to take.  Here are some time management tips (developed by Counseling) to help you make the most of your available time.

 

Finances

The sooner you graduate, the sooner you will begin to earn a salary commensurate with your degree. A recent study has shown that if you take 12 units a semester instead of 15, this will delay your graduation by a year and end up costing you over the course of your career close to $50,000. However, that must be balanced by ensuring you have the financial resources needed while you are completing your education. The Financial Aid and Scholarship office has resources online including helping you to understand your financial aid package. There is an online database of scholarships to apply to. Also, the Bursar’s office can work with you on tuition payment plans.
