Use MyPlan to Plan Your Academic Year

  • Visit UW-IT MyPlan for an overview video and quick guides to help you search for courses in MyPlan and add them to your academic year plan.
  • Did your adviser make course recommendations for you in your MyPlan? Click on each course title to visit the Course Details page and decide whether to add the course to your plan. Note: you must "share" your MyPlan in order for advisers to review it and make course recommendations. You can check whether your MyPlan is shared or private by going to the top right of the screen and clicking on your UW NetID, which will open the MyPlan settings. This includes an options to make your MyPlan shareable or private only to yourself.
  • Audit your plan in MyPlan. Instructions to audit your plan are available in the MyPlan FAQ.
