What is the two–year plan? 

Since we believe that advising is an extremely important part of a successful experience at SPSU, you are required to fill-out a two-year plan, both as an undergraduate and graduate student, based on our Permanent Schedule.  This plan lists what courses you believe you will be taking over the next two years and entered into Degree Works through your Banner Web account.  

You will need to fill-out this plan during your first term at SPSU or a “hold” will be placed on your record and you won’t be able to pre-register.  Please see your advisor or program coordinator for more information.

When finished with your plan, click "save plan."  You should be asked if you want to submit the plan for approval.  Say "yes," and then email your advisor that you have submitted a plan for review. The system does not notify your advisor that your plan has been submitted. Please include your student identification number in all email correspondence. Your advisor will get back to you at his or her earliest convenience. He or she will either approve the plan or reject it and give you appropriate feedback. Make the changes and send it back to your advisor for approval. Once your plan is approved, it is active and locked. You must see your advisor to make any future changes.

You can find the “Permanent Schedule” for IT classes through our link located on the left column on any of our webpages.  The schedule lists the courses we will be offering (at a minimum) each semester (beginning even and odd years fall term).



  1. Login to Banner Web.
  2. Click "Student Services & Financial Aid"
  3. Click "Degree Works - Degree Audit"
  4. Click the Degree Works button.
  5. Go to "Planner."
  • You must title your plan.
  • You must select a term.
  • You can type in courses or drag and drop.
  • Do NOT type name of course - only course title and number e.g. IT 4323.
  • Use the catalog year in which you started your major courses (ie., Information Technology courses).

Who’s my Advisor?

Your advisor’s name can be found on Banner Web (see below) and is listed on the Degree Works screen.  You can also speak to the program coordinator for your program who will always be able to help you.

In addition, the School of Computing & Software Engineering has a full-time Academic Advisor who can help you with most questions about the general education requirements.  Major requirements should be directed to your advisor or program coordinator.
