New Registration Procedures

Winthrop is transitioning to the new and improved Banner 9 Registration module, which students can access in Wingspan. To register you should have your DegreeWorks Planner or Advisement Worksheet filled out with the appropriate courses.

Prior to Registration

  • Contact your advisor to be advised. If you don’t know who your advisor is, this information is available in Degree Works, in the top information block. Advising is not required to register for summer courses.  
  • Check your status and view potential holds. Log into Wingspan, select the Student tab, then Registration, and click on Banner 9 Registration. When the Banner 9 module opens, click Prepare for Registration and then select the term. This will show you your Student Status, your Academic Status, and your Earned Hours. You can also view here whether you have any holds that prevent registration. .
  • Returning students should look up your registration time on the online Time Assignment Chart. Your time assignment is based on your Earned Hours. New students will register as part of orientation. If you get an error that says "Time tickets prevent registration at this time," either your advising flag has not been lifted or it is not your time to register. Follow the instructions above to confirm your Earned Hours and compare that to the Time Assignment Chart. If it is your time to register, contact your advisor to make sure your flag has been lifted.


You can view a short demonstration video on how to search and register for classes in the new and improved registration module. 

  1. Log in to Wingspan. Click on the Student tab at the top of the page. Under the Student tab, click on Registration. Then select Banner 9 Registration.
  2. Search for courses by selecting Register for Classes. You can click on Advanced Search for more search options.
  3. In the Search Results, click on the course title to view additional information including course notes, restrictions, co-requisites and prerequisites.
  4. Click Add at the far right to add the course to the Schedule and Summary panels.  Click Submit in the bottom right hand panel to finalize course registration. In the Summary panel, the course will then be listed as registered or you may get an error here. Hover over the error for more information.
  5. If you would like to drop a class from your schedule, go to the Summary panel and select Drop via Web in the Action column and submit. The course will show as Deleted. Then Submit again to remove the course from the panel.

Helpful Hints:

  1. Click the Panels button in the lower-left hand corner to show or hide the lower panels.
  2. If a course has a Part of Term other than 1, the course does not run the full semester.  Click on the Title and then select Instructor/Meeting Times to view the start and end dates.
  3. If you need to register for two courses that are corequisites, you will need to add both classes to the Summary panel at the same time. Once both classes are in the Summary panel, click Submit. If you try to submit with only one of the corequisites in the Summary panel, you will get an error.
  4. If you would like to search for a class that meets a specific general education requirement, select the requirement from the Attributes field in the Advanced Search.
  5. If you already know the five-digit CRNs for your classes, go to Register for Classes then select the Enter CRNs tab at the top. Enter the CRN in the box, clicking +Add Additional CRN to add additional classes. Then click Add to Summary Panel. Once all your courses are in the Summary panel, click Submit to register for them.
  6. Overrides for pre-requisite, co-requisite, and restriction errors, as well as courses that are full, are handled by the academic departments. Use the Course Override Form for more information on how to request an override. 
  7. Check out our Waitlisting website to learn more about the new waitlist option available in Fall 2021.
