The best school planners for students! A new school semester is quickly approaching and I decided to make a blog post about my favorite school planners. I will make sure to add a link to the place where I purchased the planner or a similar one. This collection is going to help you find a planner to stay organized throughout the school year.
Some of the planners are for 2017 – 2018, but companies often sell the same planner for the next year. If there is an updated version, I will add a link to the planner for the current year.
Here is an updated list of the best school planners for college students (2018 – 2019).
This page contains affiliate links to products I use, love, and highly recommend. I receive a small commission for purchases made through links in this blog post. Thank you for your support.

The bullet journal is my favorite planner. If you are looking for a planner to create your own layouts or simple weekly to-dos this planner is for you. I found this planner at Marshalls, but here is a similar one.

Creating a table of content is excellent to keep track of all your projects and ideas. Here is another similar planner to this one.
The best part about bullet journaling is creating your own page layouts.
My favorite part of art bullet journaling is letting your imagination soar. I love filling every blank page of my journal with color.
The B2P pen is amazing to create fake calligraphy titles and the erasable pens don’t leave a shadow on the page when you erase them from the paper.
On this page, I can easily write all my weekly to-dos to make sure I don’t fall behind in my school assignments.
On this page, I used:
- Pilot Frixion Black Erasable pen to write my errands, if I change my mind about any of them I can easily erase them from the page without having to use whiteout.
- Pilot B2P for the title and the Tombow Dual Brush Pen.
I like to have all my school assignments on a separate page. On this page, I wrote down all the chapters that I’m planning to read for my physics 2 class.
I always color code my classes. The color green is usually for my physics class, blue is for my biology classes, and pink for my history classes.

If you want a planner just for school this planner is for you! This planner is simple and elegant at the same time. You can find it here.

“If we are growing, we are always going to be out of our confort zone.”
I love how this planner helps you stay organized, I can easily glance at my class schedule and plan my day around my classes.
Before you start the school semester, write down all your goals. I love this part of the planner, every time I glance at this page I can remind myself why I started my career and where I want to be when I graduate from college.
I love color coding my classes. On the calendar, I write down all my upcoming exams and assignments with the colors that I chose from the key (see piture below).
Here is another example of how I keep track of my classes’ assignments using color-coding.
This page is one of my favorites, it forces me to stay on top of everything that needs to be done that day and the following days. I still use the erasable pens just in case I need to move an assignment to another day.
Even when school is over, this planner includes long to-do pages to avoid having to use another planner.
At the very back of the planner there are empty pages to doodle or to write down your ideas.

The company offers 3 different size planners, this one is a medium (classic) size planner.
When I opened this planner, the first thing I did was write an inspirational quote on the right page.
“Extraordinary things are always hinding in places people never think to look.” – Jodi Picoult
The inside pages that I chose for this planner are the daily planner pages.

The last pages of the planner are amazing! They help you figure out what you did wrong, what you need to improve, and how you can improve your goals.
This planner is a little bit bulky and heavy compared to the other planners on this blog post. But the planners offer so many pages to help you in your personal life and your school life. You can find this encouraging planner here.

This planner is compact and made to withstand a long year of use. Here are a couple of similar planners to this one.
