The instructions for the Student Plan Builder Report have been updated to cover more access methods, now include more detail about pop-ups that may appear when users try to log in, and have been changed to a PDF format for easier use across multiple devices.
A new report has been created that allows advisors to see the contents of the Plans built by students in their school or college. It is a handy one-stop-shop for info about all student plans: Advisors are able to filter by semester, by student, by major, or by other attributes, and the report only has to be run once to get data for all of the school or college’s students, making it much faster than running individual students’ Plans.
Here is a link for advisors on how to access the Student Plan Report:

DARS has been upgraded to include new functionality. Soon, Temple students admitted in fall 2016 or later will be able to view an 8-semester “Roadmap” for their major. Additionally, they will be able to create their own “Plans” to map out the progression of the coursework needed to graduate in 4 years!
Advising departments will notify students as Roadmaps become available for their specific majors.
