  • View advisee 'My Progress' (degree audit)
  • View advisee past coursework and unofficial transcript
  • Review advisee course plan for future terms
  • Compose notes that are shared with advisees and other advisers
  • Archive student plans
  • View advisee test summary screen

Faculty: Beginning in September for Fall Term, 2017, faculty will be able to use Self-Service for the following functionalities:

  • View class rosters
  • Submit midterm and final grade rosters
  • Submit instructor consents

WebAdvisor processes that will remain active during the 2017-18 academic year include:

  • adviser registration authorization for advisees
  • managing waiting lists
  • section maintenance (managing active course limit)
  • department/program head proxy screens

Ellucian Student Planning is the registration module used by students, as the replacement for WebAdvisor (which is slowly phasing out).  Current first-year and sophomore students will use Student Planning for course planning, viewing 'My Progress' (their degree audit), and registering for classes beginning with Fall 2017 registration. Students can perform academic planning activities such as searching for courses, planning their terms, and scheduling and registering for course sections.

Why move to Student Planning?

  • WebAdvisor is phasing out and this is the Ellucian replacement
  • To improve registration and course planning for students
  • More modern web interface and usability features
