This month Kean officially switched the way students register for courses from KeanWise to an all-new program called Student Planner. April 6 was the first day to start registering for courses in the new program.
To access the student planner, students log in to their KeanWise account and the student planner will be found under the academic profile. Lethicia Ferrari, a freshman whose major is undecided, found this way of registering more useful.
“The new student planner is more efficient and clear when it comes to registering for courses,” Ferrari said.
The student planner can help track and also plan your academic progress towards your degree. It allows you to search and register for courses, create a plan for degree completion and reach out to the academic adviser in your major.
The university has provided a step-by-step tutorial on how to register for courses using student planning on KeanWise.A few students had a bit of trouble at first. Ferrari said when registering, she did have trouble at first finding the agreements required to use the program.
“I did have trouble but only to find the agreement we need to agree to,” Ferrari said. “A classmate did assist me and now I know how to do it for future reference.”
Alexander Salazar,a junior majoring in communication/ media & film, said he has used the Student Planner at other schools.
“No problems, I already had experience using this student planner before,” he said “I love the new student planner and think it’s a great implementation of how to register for classes,” Salazar said.
Robert Giuffra, a freshman majoring in computer science, thinks the student planner is a much simpler way of registering for courses.
“I like how simple and clean it is,” said Giuffra.I do it find it more useful than the original way of registering.” Giuffra said.

The student planner helps make registering for courses much easier by displaying an empty schedule of the week. Students are able to see how courses can fit into their schedule. Salazar thinks this is an easier way to plan for next semester.
“What I like the most is that it’s easier to plan with,” Salazar said. “I can check all of the classes at once and see how it fits into my schedule.classes and how to line up our schedule.”
Like Salazar, Ferrari said what she liked the most about the student planner was how easy it is to use and how clear it is to schedule her classes for next semester.
“What I like the most about the student planner is how you are adding courses, you have a clear calendar of how your day would look,” Ferrari said. “This makes it easier to decide which class is best at a certain time.”
