All students entering Texas A&M University beginning with the fall 2013 semester and later are required to complete an annual undergraduate degree plan. Students who do not have an approved degree plan on file by the deadline stated in the Academic Calendar will have a registration hold placed on their account for future terms.
An initial degree plan may be submitted after the 7th class day of the student’s first term of enrollment.
Subsequent submission is between March 1 and September 30 each year.
Prior to Fall 2013
No approval is required for students enrolled prior to fall 2013. Students may use the planner optionally.
For tracking purposes, registration holds will be placed in late February of each year for all students who require an approved plan by September 30 of that year. The hold will become effective and block registration on October 1 for students who do not have an approved plan on file.
Degree planner registration holds are expired for students awarded a degree in the previous term the second week of classes of the succeeding semester or summer term following commencement.
Plans for Graduation
Graduating seniors may choose to use the Degree Planner as a graduation tool. Plans that meet all degree requirements for graduation purposes are automatically approved upon submission. Graduating seniors with missing degree requirements should contact their academic advisor.
The Degree Planner will always be open for submission. However, submissions for subsequent approvals must be made after March 1 to expire the degree planner hold for continuing students.
Paper Degree Plan
Use the paper degree plan from your most recent advising appointment as your guide to completing your degree planner in Howdy. If your degree planner on Howdy shows you are missing a course, you can still submit your degree planner and a WFSC advisor will approve it as long as you followed your paper degree plan.
NOTE: Degree planner is not a set schedule for future semesters, but a planning tool for students. You may take courses in a different order/semester than indicated on your degree planner.
For more information please see Texas A&M University Student Rule 1.9. and contact a WFSC advisor for questions.
