Step 4: Complete Your Academic Planning Worksheet

What is the Academic Planning Worksheet (APW)?

The APW is designed to assist you with organizing your thoughts before your one-on-one meeting with an advisor during New Student Orientation (NSO).  Answer the questions and list course options that will contribute to a discussion of your goals and interests with the advisor you meet with.

Bring a completed APW to your NSO advising session. Either use the one sent to you in your NSO packet or print off a copy from the appropriate links below.

Where can I get a copy of the APW?

You may access an electronic copy of the APW. 

Complete the Standard APW if you are a freshman.

Complete the Transfer APW if you are a transfer student.
