Schedule Builder is a great tool to use to plan your course schedule before you begin registering for classes. Schedule Builder does integrate with CampS, however it is not a registration system, so prerequisites and department consent are not enforced in schedule builder, but will be enforced when you try to register in CampS. So make sure to check your schedule carefully. Schedule Builder presents every possible schedule option that is open and available for registration, which means if utilized too early the number of generated schedules can be overwhelming.
As your registration time approaches, course availability will decrease resulting in fewer generated schedules. For best results, it is recommended to use Schedule Builder a few days prior to your enrollment appointment.
In CampS go to Manage Classes > Schedule Builder.
Open Schedule Builder.
You may need to disable your pop-up blocker to use Schedule Builder.
