Visual Schedule Builder (VSB) is the newest online self-service tool for Undergraduate students that enables students to effectively and effortlessly create their optimal class schedule. Any classes that you enrol in or drop in VSB will be reflected in your class schedule. Using the My Classes Offered functionality and VSB is the recommended option for Undergraduate students to enrol in courses during the enrolment period each term.
Note: At this time, only undergraduate classes are available in VSB. Although you will be able to view any existing Chang School course enrolments when you build your schedule in VSB, changes to Chang School enrolments cannot be made in VSB and must be completed through RAMSS.
You will still be required to select courses that fulfill the curriculum requirements for your degree.
Why not begin your course selection by using our enhanced Visual Schedule Builder (VSB) feature available to undergraduate students.
This feature enables you to import courses from your Advisement Report using the Search by My Classes Offered functionality directly into Visual Schedule Builder (VSB). Then you can create your optimal schedule based on the course requirements for your program of study.
Using this functionality allows you to enrol using a filtered version of your Advisement Report that shows only courses you have completed and classes that are offered to your program and plan in the term you are enrolling in.
