  2. Click the KnightWeb tile near the middle of the page.

  3. Click on Faculty Services → Advisor Menu → Student Registration

    Faculty Services Advisor Menu option
  4. Click the Plan Ahead tile

  5. Select the "Advisor" role and click the OK button.

  6. Select the upcoming registration term from the dropdown.

  7. Search for the student by ID (G-Number) or Name.  When the correct student appears in the dropdown, click on the record.

  8. Click the Continue button

  9. Click the Create a New Plan button.

  10. Enter a Subject and Course Number to add to the plan and click the Search button.

  11. Click the "View Sections" button.  Do not click the Add Course button - it will only add the generic catalog course (ex: ACCT 103), not a particular section of the course (ex: ACCT 103-02 w/ CRN 50141).

  12. Make sure that the "Schedule Panel" is visible in the lower left section of the screen. You may need to click on the "reset panel" middle dot of the panel slider. (See red circle in the screenshot below).

  13. Review the available sections (make sure seats are available!). Also review the Schedule Panel to ensure that no time conflicts exist. Finally, make sure that any corequisite, labs, etc., are accounted for.  The Registration Plan does NOT check for any potential registration plans. You must proactively account for any potential issues when creating the plan. Once you've found an appropriate section, click the Add button.

  14. If you need to add additional courses, click the Catalog Search Results button to return to the previous search screen.  Otherwise continue to step 16.

  15. Click the Search Again button near the upper-right section of the screen.  Remove the existing search elements.  Then repeat steps 10-14 to add additional courses.

  16. Once you've added all courses, click the Save Plan button.

  17. Enter a Plan Name and click the Save button.

  18. The student will now be able to view the plan, but they won't be able to modify it.  The Advisor may modify the plan by searching for the student and clicking on the list of plans of the student in step 9.
