CORE SERVICE 3: STUDENT EDUCATIONAL PLAN (SEP) After completing your assessment, you will have the opportunity to schedule an educational planning session with a counselor to review your assessment results, to learn about your educational/career options and develop a Student Educational Plan (SEP) for your first year at LPC. During your first semester of attendance, you are strongly encouraged to make an appointment to meet with a counselor to discuss your goals and develop a Student Educational Plan (SEP). The purpose of your SEP is to help plan the courses that are required to meet your educational goal(s). During your SEP appointment with a counselor, you will learn what courses you need, the overall time line to complete your goal, and the support services available to help your successfully achieve your goal(s). Visit the LPC homepage and search “Counseling” for counseling services offered, and available hours. ORIENTATION, ASSESSMENT & STUDENT EDUCATIONAL PLAN TRACK YOUR PROGRESS WITH DEGREE WORKS LPC offers a web-based tool to help you keep track of your educational progress! Degree Works (DW) allows you as a student to view your Student Educational Plan and confirm what courses you have completed, as well as what courses remain, toward meeting your educational objective(s). DW matches your academic and course history, as well as your current course schedule, against the degree requirements as defined in the LPC College Catalog.* Thinking about adding a major, or changing your goal? DW also gives you the opportunity to explore “What If Scenarios,” to determine how your courses meet requirements for programs other than your current declared major. Please meet with a counselor for questions about your educational goal or to change your Student Educational Plan. To access Degree Works, follow these steps: 1. Visit the LPC Home Page and login to CLASS-Web. 2. Once logged in, navigate to the Student Service tab. 3. Scroll down to locate the Degree Works link. *A degree audit created in Degree Works is not official notification of completion of degree or certificate requirements.
