Setting up an iSEP

For first-time City College students starting this fall and spring, Nov. 1 is the deadline to complete an individual student educational plan (iSEP) to guarantee priority enrollment, according to City College Admissions and Records and counseling staff.

The iSEP is the third part of the new enrollment process, which also includes orientation and assessment, said City College counselor Kris Janssen.

To develop an iSEP, a student must make an appointment with a City College counselor. During this appointment the counselor can educate the student about general education courses, major requirements and degree-oriented electives, according to the iSEP page on the City College website.

The iSEP also lowers the risk for students to take unnecessary classes, said Janssen.

“Those of us that have been doing this a long time see students that come in and say, ‘I have just been randomly taking classes’ and ‘I have never seen a counselor before and I have been here four years,’ ” Janssen explained.

Even though currently enrolled City College students are not required to complete this process to retain priority enrollment this fall semester, the iSEP is an important tool every student should have, said City College Admissions and Records Supervisor Kim Goff.

“It’s essentially an electronic educational plan,” said Goff. “It’s important for all students to have an educational plan. Meeting with a counselor gives them the benefit of that counseling knowledge and to enroll for classes that they really need, instead of wasting time.”

What makes the current iSEP more useful than its predecessors is its portability, said Goff. Students who have completed the iSEP can always reference it through their eServices page.

“It is always with you wherever you go,” said Goff.

Since the iSEP will be a requirement for priority enrollment in the upcoming months, the end of this current semester might be the best time to complete an iSEP if current students haven’t already done so, said Janssen.

“There are a lot of challenges with it that we are trying to sort out in counseling,” said Janssen. “If every person came in for an iSEP, we couldn’t handle that capacity.”

Janssen said there are only about 16 counselors, but that for new students there will be group counseling sessions that will use the academic planner in eServices to help meet the demand.

The best way to ensure a one-on-one counseling session is to make an appointment, said Janssen.

Students who only need to map out the next semester can drop by when the counseling office opens at 8 a.m. and let staff know they want to be seen as quick-question students.

If a counselor is available, he or she will see quick-question students on a first-come, first-serve basis, said Janssen.

Goff said she is confident that students who set up an iSEP will have an easier time meeting their educational goals.

“It’s hard to navigate this [college] environment,” said Goff. “[With an iSEP] it’s a two fold thing: You get to know what you should be enrolling in, and you get to talk to someone about how to navigate the next steps.”
