Plan Ahead and Register option in Student Self-Service

Using the new, 'Plan Ahead and Register' option in Student Self Service, students may now create a registration plan before registration opens by utilizing the 'Plan Ahead' feature.  This feature allows students to plan out their semester schedule in advance of their registration date then, once their registration window opens, register for their classes directly from the plan.  An overview of this feature is listed below.  A PDF with more detailed instructions is also available below.
