Degree Plans

Don't know the differences with GPS, ISP, and TAG? You've come to the right place.

GPS Plan

Review your current degree plan by visiting your ACES account. You can see where you have recently registered for classes, what requirements have been completed, and what you will need to complete to earn your degree.

ISP (Individual Success Plan)

Students should update their ISP each semester to be certain they stay on track with their chosen degree plans. During your first semester of classes, you meet with your institute advisor to start this process. You will get more information about this during your EDUC 1300 class. 

Watch a short ISP tutorial here

TAG (Transfer Advising Guide)

Find the Transfer Advising Guides (TAG) for select four-year institutions. These will assist you in selecting courses that meet your SAC degree requirements and those for your potential bachelor program.



The SAC Advising Office assists continuing students who need a PIN to register for the next available semester. Here is some helpful information about the process:

  • The PIN is needed by any student who has completed 15, 30, or 45 credit hours
  • Students are highly encouraged to contact their Assigned Advisor prior to the opening of time-ticketed registration to avoid long wait times
  • Visit HOW TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH YOUR ADVISOR for scheduling assistance
