Career Services: Plan and Act
Plan and Act...Know the Education Plan
Use the various documents to guide you to graduation and take the steps toward completing the courses.
Write down your goals: consider your work or family commitments when planning your schedule—how many courses you can handle in a semester? Will you attend summer school or not? When you might need tutoring or blocking out time in your calendar to study. Know the dates for dropping or adding a course, etc.
Be sure to check all of your courses that you selected to determine if there is a pre-requisite required. You can find this information in the college catalog. For example, to take ACC 201 (Financial Accounting 201), you must have completed Math 96 and ENG 98R.
Sequence courses over several semesters
A helpful way of planning is to use your degree documents and make a pencil draft on paper of which courses you need/want to take each semester and possibly through to expected graduation. This will allow you to re-arrange the courses based on pre-requisites and availability.
Once this is completed, you can access My Planner in MyTMCC to select the various courses (up to a year in advance) and keep in your shopping cart until you need to enroll in a particular semester. Academic Advisement can assist you in this process.
