What is Smart Planner?

Plan. Pick. Enroll. Assess. Graduate!

Smart Planner is the first step to mapping out your degree at Sacramento State. Smart Planner is part of your KEYS to Degree Toolbox and allows your major department to provide you with a semester-by-semester roadmap that you can follow and tweak to meet your specific graduation requirements.

Using Smart Planner along with your advisor and the other tools in your KEYS Toolbox helps you to plan out your degree and build an ideal schedule. Explore them in your Student Center at My Sac State.
