General instructions for Faculty access to view Sophomore Plans:

Go to the Sophomore Plan Departmental Portal: www.swarthmore.edu/appgarden

All-faculty: In the Sophomore Plan Departmental Portal, all faculty and departmental administrative staff can read students' sophomore plans and can review lists of majors/minors for their own departments/programs. But, only chairs/AAs/coordinators can enter decisions or assign advisors.

How view plans? In the portal, click on the magnifying glass or the PDF icon to the left of the student’s name. The very first time that you want to access the PDFs, you will need to:

  • Click on the tab that you want (e.g.“Sophomore Plan Major Submissions”)
  • Click on the “Action” button
  • Select “Reset” option
  • Click on “Apply” button
  • Note: The Sophomore Plan PDFs are only available if you are accessing the portal from on-campus, or via a VPN connection.

Problems?: Some faculty might find that they are not seeing all the plans that they should in the portal. For example, someone might find that she can see plans for students in her home department, but not plans for students in her affiliated programs. If you encounter this problem, please email Ruthanne (rkrauss1@swarthmore.edu) for help.
