Career Plan Requests Page

Use this page to view or enter a student's course requests for future grade levels and school years for the subject areas covered by the student's Career Plan and supplemental plans.

The page displays panels covering the student's Career Plan and supplemental plans. Each subject area has two sections: Summary, which displays the student's credit totals, and Request, which enables you to review and enter course requests for future years. For related information, refer to Career Plan for Student.

Courses and other information entered in this page display on the Career Plan page in Home Access Center (HAC), where guardians and students can enter course requests. The availability of this information in HAC depends on whether the student or contacts has access to Home Access Center, as well as the HAC District Configuration.

If Yes displays, position the mouse pointer over it to display the block's blockette courses.


Number of credits to be awarded for successfully completing the course. For block courses, the system shows the sum of credits for the blockettes. All credit amounts come from the Course Catalog.

Scheduling Interval

Scheduling interval for the student request. The system uses the interval to determine the requests and courses to process.

Request Type

Type of request. This setting determines how the system handles the request when the scheduler is run.


Regular - to indicate this is a regular request which the system should attempt to schedule before processing alternate requests.
Student Alternate - to indicate this is an alternate request that can be used when the system cannot schedule any regular request.
Student/Course Alternate - to indicate this alternate request can only be used if the system is unable to schedule the course defined in the Alternate Course field.

Alternate Course

Course to substitute if this regular course request cannot be scheduled. If both the regular course and alternate course specified in the Course Catalog cannot be scheduled, then the student/course alternate is scheduled.

This field can be accessed only when the Request Type is Student/Course Alternate.

Alternate Sequence

Sequence number determining the processing order for this request in relation to other alternate requests. Number 1 has the highest priority.

This field can be accessed only when the Request Type is Student Alternate or Student/Course Alternate.


Checked if you want to lock the request to prevent a guardian or student from removing it in Home Access Center (HAC).

Override Prerequisite

Checked if you want to allow a course to be requested, even though its prerequisite has not been met. Course prerequisites are defined in the Course Sequence option (Scheduling > Courses > District Courses > District Course Sequencing).

If you receive an error upon saving a course that has a prerequisite, you must either select the checkbox to override the prerequisite or delete the request. You must have the appropriate security resource to override the Teacher Load.


To delete a request, select the row's Delete checkbox, then click Save. To select checkboxes for all requests in the section, click the (Delete) icon in the column header.
