Advising Excel Guides

ECE students have requested further assistance with mapping out their 4-year plan. ECE Advising has created Excel files that will assist students on the 18-20, 20-22, and 22-24 catalogs with mapping out their remaining courses. 

We have created individual files to assist students in the general ECE curriculum, ECE Honors curriculum, ECB Honors + Canfield Business Program and the Ramshorn Scholars Program.  These files have locked cells (the required plans) and unlocked cells (for students to copy/paste their planned courses) to assist advising and student planning.
