Declaring Part-Time Status
If your student plans to declare part time status for the Fall 2013 Semester, then they will need to do so prior to the Last Day to add, which is September 10th. Once students arrive on campus, they will need to visit the Office of Academic Advising to speak with an Academic Counselor to obtain permission. For more information and the Part-Time Status Request Form Please visit: http://advising.wfu.edu/part-time-status-at-wake-forest/
WIN registration reopened August 13th at 9:00 am. Please encourage students who are under 12 hours of course registration to register for a complete course load. If they are waitlisted for courses, they should still attempt to register for additional courses.
New Undergraduate Students
WIN registration for new students will resume on the first day of classes, August 27th at 8:00 am. At this time, new students will be able to add, drop or waitlist a class.

If Your Student Has a Problem
One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem. The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
