An academic plan is a sequence of courses you will take each term until you graduate in your selected degree/certificate program. After completing your New Student Orientation, it is required that you attend your first advising appointment. During this appointment, your academic advisor works to confirm your career choice, reviews your degree requirements as you begin the academic planning process. Just like you, your plan is unique. Your academic advisor will work one-on-one with you to determine how many classes you should take each semester, what those classes are and create a detailed academic plan that works for you. Academic advisors assist you to develop an academic plan that gives you a realistic idea of how long it will take for you to graduate and support you to stay on course to completion. The academic plan also serves as a guide to assist you in selecting your courses during early registration. It can also be accessed when you sign into myBC. You are strongly encouraged to work with your academic advisor and keep them informed of any major changes to your academic plan, such as transfer institution, program or enrollment status. By doing so, academic advisors can work with you to ensure that you have a plan that correctly guides you to academic success and pushes you closer to achieving your educational dreams. If you have not created your academic plan, or need to make updates, please schedule an appointment to meet with an academic advisor.
You can schedule your pathway advising appointment through myBC by following a few simple steps:
- Log in to myBC on the Broward College homepage.
