Registration Procedures

Students access course registration 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 and click on Registration under the Self Service 9x - NEW menu in the upper right-hand corner. Then you should select Prepare for Registration and the term. This will show your Student Status, your Academic Status, and your Earned Hours. You can also view here whether you have any holds that prevent registration and whether your advising is complete. If your advising is complete, the day and time of your registration time assignment also will be listed here.

  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 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.

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. You can view any overrides you have been given in the Registration module under Prepare for Registration.
