Student Educational Plan (SEP)

A Student Education Plan (SEP) is a document that you and your counselor create together showing the courses and activities planned to reach your academic and career goals.

An SEP should be developed even before you start your first semester at FCC and then updated throughout your enrollment in college.

An SEP can help ensure you take courses and participate in services that align with your goals to graduate, transfer, and increase your skills for employment.

Abbreviated SEP (SEPA) - If a student completes an SEPA, they will have a plan that includes 1-2 semesters of work and can receive a priority registration date.

Comprehensive SEP (SEPC) - If a student completes an SEPC, they will have a plan that includes everything they need to complete their college goal.  A student may be eligible for an even earlier registration date once they complete 18 units and have an SEPC.

To determine when and what counselor you should meet with to complete an SEP, take this short quiz and get some direction.
