Important Change in Registration

The Office of the Registrar has emailed undergraduate students about a delay in registration.  Students should check their WFU email account for the message; it is also reproduced below.



Round One Registration for each undergraduate class is being delayed by one full day.  The new Round ONE registration days are as follows:

Seniors – Tuesday

Juniors – Wednesday

Sophomores – Thursday

Freshmen – Friday

This change is necessary because a program that assigns registration limits for Round One failed to run properly today.  Hence, we are not able to limit a student to 8 hours or 4 additional hours for those who participated in Major/Minor Registration.  We cannot open registration without these limits in place.

We have attempted to correct this problem today, but it appears we will be unable to do so before the beginning of registration start times tonight at 5:00 p.m.   Hence, we have decided to move all registration start time for Round One by one day, while we continue to work to fix the problem. 

To be clear and as an example, if you are a junior and your Round One registration time was Tuesday at 7:50 pm, your new registration time will be Wednesday at 7:50 pm.  Your registration time will be at the same time, but one day later.   Because we are working to fix this registration limits problem, we cannot consider any changes in registration times from those already assigned.

We anticipate that Round Two registration times will be as originally scheduled Monday – Thursday.

I greatly regret this problem caused by this program failure.   I will be in contact in this same way if there are other developments affecting registration times.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the most important ways parents and families can help their students in college is by encouraging them to solve their own problems. Please bookmark or print out this Stop, Drop, and Roll flyer so you have it when your student contacts you with a problem.  Also, the flyer lists contact information for urgent and serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
