Spring 2012 Pre-registration Instructions

Juniors:  Make sure that you meet with your major advisor to review major requirements and plan your course of study in conjunction with your Major Certification Form.  As always, check your credit analysis for oversubscription in a department or other category as well as for your progress on other graduation requirements.  –Dean Brown

Between 8:30am on Tues., Nov. 1 and 5pm on Mon., Nov. 14 you MUST:
1) Create a course plan, including ranked course selections via EP>Student>Course Registration>Pre-Registration. 

2) Electronically submit Permission of Instructor and Prerequisite Override requests to the instructors through your portfolio.

3) confirm your Fall 2011 schedule in EP>Student>Wesleyan Career>Current Classes & Schedule before 5pm on Mon., Nov. 14 in order to be build a pre-reg plan. (Not applicable to students returning from leave or abroad.)

4) meet with your faculty advisor to finalize your course plan before 5pm on Mon., Nov. 14. (Students returning from leave or abroad also need advisor finalization, but a meeting is not required.)

1) Adding a course to your plan does not guarantee you a seat in the course.

2) If you are scheduled into your top ranked class, the system will proceed down list A. If you do not get your first choice, the system will proceed down list B. You should list courses in both columns, and there should be some overlap between the A and B columns.
3) On Tues., Nov. 15, the pre-registration system will run a scheduling program enrolling students into courses. The system will look at: rank, class year/major, number of previous requests, number of courses already scheduled, completed pre-requisites, permission of instructor status, and, all things equal, a random number.

4) Later that day, in your portfolio, you will be able to preview your preliminary schedule and ascertain what time you may begin adjustment. Based on the number of scheduled full credit courses (those with fewer enrolled credits go first), you may participate beginning as early as 8am Wed., Nov. 16. Adjustment will close at 5pm on Tues., Nov. 22.
