EDUCATION PLAN

What is a Student Educational Plan?

A student educational plan or SEP is the list of all courses a student needs in order to complete their certificate, degree or transfer program. This list of courses can be broken into semester units so that a student will know exactly what courses to register for each semester.

Who needs to create an SEP?

All students need to make an educational plan that reflects what their goals are for attending BCC.

Some students have specific goals while others only have a vague idea about why they are attending college. Even if a student wants to take time to explore majors by taking a variety of courses, they need to make a tentative plan outlining the English, math and general education courses they need to complete their goals.

Remember, student educational plans are not etched in stone; they can be changed or modified as goals change; however, we would not recommend a student change their major often to avoid taking unnecessary courses.

Students are required to have comprehensive education plan by the time they complete 15 units and they are also required to have an update education plan once they have complete 45 units. If a student does not meet this requirement they will lose priority registration until the update education plans are completed.

Why create an SEP?

Planning and taking only those courses a student needs saves them time and money.

An educational plan allows a student to keep their priority registration. An educational plan lets a student know exactly what courses they need to register for each semester. This plan assists in knowing exactly what is needed to get a certificate, associate degree or transfer in the shortest amount of time. It helps students to focus on completing their goals.
