College Scheduler by Civitas Learning

College Scheduler Logo

Learn About Us  

How Smarter Planning & Registration Is Improving the Student Experience. Today’s IT leaders know that disparate systems for advising, planning, scheduling, and registration are an all-too-often reality for campuses everywhere. As a direct result, students often have a disconnected experience that doesn’t support the critical conversations and planning students need to better manage their academic process

That’s why we’re building an integrated solution where students can collaborate with their advisor, build a degree plan, find an optimal schedule based on that plan, and then easily complete the registration process to get the classes they need. Join us for a conversation about how you can deploy a smarter app today to help students before their next registration season -- and simultaneously build a solution that supports students in the critical moments throughout their academic journey.
