Students log back into Webadvising to view the status of the course(s) they
Ø requested and change the ones that are marked “Faculty Approved” to “Student Accepted.”
Ø If you are “Faculty Approved” for a course that you have no intention of registering for, PLEASE change the status to “Not needed by Student” so another student may take the course.
Ø Students still need to register for the course online once their appointment time comes. Please note: “Student Accepted” is the only status that will allow you to register for the course
Ø If students do not register for a petition course that they accept, the department, at their discretion, may give their space to another student on the waitlist after the conclusion of prescheduling appointments.
Students should refer to “My Registration Restrictions” link on Webadvising for their appointment time and day. Registration appointments for on-campus students commence on Monday, Oct. 30th. Term abroad students will register according to their specific time/day listed on Webadvising.
Your adviser will remove your Webadvising hold electronically after meeting with you to discuss your winter courses. (Students on a term abroad should email their adviser about their winter choices.)
Students also need to check “My Registration Restrictions” to see if they have any other holds (financial, health, failure to declare a major, etc.) on their account. Students will not be allowed to preschedule if they have holds on their account although they will be allowed to participate in the petition process.
A computer will be available at the Registrar’s Office, First Floor of Silliman Hall, if any student needs assistance with web registration.
