How do I use the iGPS Plan to guide my academic path?

The iGPS (Interactive Graduation Planning System) Plan is Indiana University's enhanced tool for academic planning that allows students to add courses, add notes, and view planned courses.

The iGPS Plan is closely integrated with the Course Search tool. For more, see Using Course Search, how do I search for courses?

Note:
For the time being, the iGPS Plan runs parallel to the SIS Academic Planner. Actions taken in either planner will be reflected in both.

On this page:


Accessing the planner

To access the planner, go to iGPS Plan in One.IU, and click Start.

Alternatively, follow the Plan link at the top of Course Search.

Adding a course

  1. From the term you want to add a course to, select Add a course to plan from either "Planned" or "Backup". This will add the course as a planned or backup course, respectively.
  2. In the dialog box that appears, from the drop-down menu, choose the IU campus you wish to search and enter the subject and catalog number for the course (e.g., eng-w 131, math-m 119).
  3. Click Go. When you find the desired course, click the course to add it to your plan.

Deleting a course

Click the course you wish to delete. In the contextual menu that appears, select Delete from plan. A dialog box will ask if you are sure you want to delete the course; click Delete and the course will be removed from your planner.

Moving or copying a course to a different term

  1. Click the course you wish to move or copy. In the contextual menu that appears, select Move to another term or Copy to another term.
  2. From the drop-down menu, select the term you wish to move or copy the course to. To move or copy the course to the desired term, click Move or Copy, respectively.

Editing a course note or number of units

  1. Click the course you wish to edit. In the contextual menu that appears, select Edit plan item.
  2. If you wish to change the units for a variable unit course, from the drop-down menu, select the desired number. If you want to add or edit a note for the course, edit the notes in the "Notes" text box.
  3. Click Edit to save the changes.

Adding or editing a term note

In the term column you wish to edit, click Edit Term Note. In the "Optional notes" text box that appears, you may enter a new note or edit a previous note. Click Save. Your note will now appear in the column for that term.
