UAB is committed to helping students and faculty succeed. One way to do this is by utilizing academic planning technologies.

In the coming months, a series of new software systems will be available to students, faculty, and staff. These systems will improve the processes for reserving space, planning the curriculum, choosing majors, interacting with advisors, and mapping clear paths to graduation. The UAB campus family will benefit from an improved academic calendar and room schedule, an online, searchable course catalog, improved student communication approaches, and a degree-map system.
