Student Planning

As a Brookdale student, you have access to Brookdale’s academic planning tool, Student Planning. Student Planning is an interactive, web-based tool that will help you find the perfect courses, track your progress toward your degree, and chart a clear path to graduation, all in one place.

You can use Student Planning to:

  • Create a Degree Plan that will fast-track you through Brookdale
  • Find courses that match your schedule. Search for classes by day of the week, time of day, and location (you can take classes at any of our locations in Lincroft, Freehold, Hazlet, Long Branch, Neptune, or Wall)
  • Schedule classes and view them on an easy-to-read calendar
  • Register for courses online right from the module starting on your assigned Priority Registration day
  • Track your progress towards a degree or certificate use are pursuing
  • Do a “what if” analysis to see effects of changing a program of study (i.e, Entered Brookdale in the Dental Radiology, but considering changing to  Nursing. How many of the courses that you’ve taken for Radiology will count toward your RN degree?)
