In an effort to support your academic success, we have brought you On Track, this will replace the old academic progress reports system. On Track allows faculty to easily alert advisors about students who may be encountering difficulties in class. It will also allow faculty to recognize a strong academic or general performance. You will also be able to “raise your hand” so that if you have any trouble ether inside or outside school, you can explain it and receive help. The goal of this initiative is to help ensure students’ academic success and improve the collegiate experience.

Schedule Planner replaces the dated process of using pen, paper and entirely too much time to develop a working schedule only to find out that a course is then closed. This software automates the process with an easy to use interface that presents the students with every possible schedule option, including breaks, that fits their desired course load. You can set the filter to only show open classes, filter by campus and/or level of the course. This process not only saves time in building the schedule but also increases the student’s chance of being able to register prior to the classes closing.
Just choose the courses that you want to register for, block out your busy time, such as practice, work or just some free time, then let Schedule Planner build a series of schedules that fit and you pick the one that is best for you.
Check it out on your Pace Portal! Click on the Students Tab and look for Registration, Grades and Tuition Schedule. It is going to be under the Registration tab.
