Getting Started

You can start your academic planning two different ways:

  1. Use the MyBlueRidge Student Planning system to create your own draft academic plan and submit your plan to your academic advisor for review
  2. Contact your academic advisor first to schedule a meeting where you can both work together to develop your academic plan.

Overview of how to use the MyBlueRidge Student Planning system:

  1. Use the “View My Progress” link under the MyBlueRidge Student Planning menu to see what courses you need to take to complete your academic degree
  2. Select courses you need to take to complete your academic plan and click the “Add Course to Plan” button
  3. Once you have added courses to your plan, go to the “Plan & Schedule” menu within the Student Planning system, click on the “Advising” tab under and then click the “Request Review” button.
  4. Depending on which academic program you are currently enrolled in, your advisor might need to review and approve your plan before you are able to register for classes
  5. Once your advisor has approved your plan, you can go back to the MyBlueRidge Student Planning system to schedule and register for specific course sections.
