An SEP is a term-by-term plan that you work out with your counselor. It will list the courses you need to complete your degree or certificate in a recommended sequence. The SEP can be used as a guide as you register for classes. It is required for priority registration.
An SEP can be used as a guide as you register for subsequent terms. If your SEP is complete, you may not need to see a counselor in subsequent terms because he/she had already developed a planned sequence of courses for you to enroll into. In addition, in order to receive priority registration, you MUST have an SEP on file.
Yes, an SEP is a plan, not a required set of courses. However, some programs such as Veteran's, Financial Aid, etc. will require you to see a counselor before making any changes to your SEP. For most students, however, you can make any change to your SEP as you feel necessary.
Stop by the counseling center or call to make an appointment to see a counselor. SEPs are not completed during drop-in advising times, so you will need to make an appointment to see a counselor to have one developed.
Some programs will require you to have an SEP on file like Veteran's and Financial Aid. In addition, in order to receive priority registration, you MUST have an SEP on file. It is highly recommended for all of our students to have an SEP on file.
