5 Tips for a Stress-Free Registration Week

Each term at WOU, you will be able to register for the next term during week eight of the current term. This can be a little intimidating at first, especially if you’re still new to the registration process, but there’s no need to worry, as there’s an easy way to ensure smooth registration. 

Check registration time and date

Before you do anything else, check your registration time to ensure you don’t miss it. This can be done by visiting the student menu in WolfWeb. Write down your registration time, set an alarm on your phone, do whatever you need to do to make sure you register when you need to. 

Visit WOU Real Time Class Availability and make a mock schedule 

Did you know you can view current and upcoming classes online? Visit the class availability schedule to see what classes will be offered in the coming terms. You can use this information to create a mock schedule to ensure all of your classes fit. 

Meet with your adviser and discuss schedule

Each term, it’s incredibly important to meet with your advisor to ensure that you are taking the correct classes for your major and/or minor. You can show them your mock schedule, and they can offer any advice or suggest any changes you may need to make. If you’re unsure of who your advisor is, you can check in the WOU Portal. There is also an option to change your advisor if you need to. 

Don’t forget to register

This may seem obvious, but it’s very common for students to forget about registration. It’s okay if you don’t register at the exact time you’re scheduled for, but it is important to register for classes as soon as you can to make sure you get in to the classes you need. 


The last step of the process is to ensure that you’ve registered correctly. You can visit WolfWeb to check your upcoming class schedule, to make sure that you’re registered for all the classes you intended to. After this is done, it’s time to relax!
