Registration is a integrated process that involves academic advisement, course selection, registering (either on-line or through the submission of a registration form), payment of all charges, and attending class.  New students may register through the many Orientation/Registration opportunities scheduled through the Office of Admissions.  Continuing students register after first meeting with their academic advisor.

We consider your registration a contractual relationship with the University and identify your responsibilities below:

  • You are responsible for knowing and following the policies, deadlines, and procedures outlined in this publication and other publications related to your registration and/or the conferral of your degree.
  • You may not attend a class for which you are not registered.
  • You will receive credit for only those classes for which you officially register. 
  • Your enrollment and/or your attendance in a class indicate your intent to receive credit and acceptance of all University charges for the semester. 
  • You are responsible for cancelling your registration if you do not plan to attend class or complete the course requirements for which you registered. 
  • You are responsible for your financial obligations with the University regardless of your payment method and regardless of whether you attend class or not. 
  • You are responsible for making arrangements to pay for your charges and doing so by the deadline posted in this publication.

Drop/Withdrawal Policy

Students are not dropped or withdrawn from courses if they do not attend. To qualify for a refund or reversal of charges you must drop or withdraw from class officially submitting the completed documentation before the deadlines noted in the academic calendar (found under the academic calendar link). Notifying an instructor or failing to attend class does not constitute an official drop or withdrawal from a course nor does it eliminate the student’s financial responsibility for his/her charges.

Registration Waitlisting
The Registrar's Office has initiated a pilot program to develop waitlisting for a limited number of undergraduate classes offered during the spring 2017 semester.  Waitlisting does not register students for a class but places students in a queue in case a spot in the class becomes available.  When a seat becomes available, the first student in the queue receives an email to his/her UIW email account informing him/her of the opening.  The student has 24 hours to add the class through Bannerweb.  If the student does not register for the open seat, the student is dropped from the queue and the seat is offered to the next student in the queue.

Waitlist rules:

  • Students cannot waitlist a class if they have holds or if they do not have the course prerequisites.
  • Waitlist is available on a first-come/first-served basis.
  • Waitlist is not available for all courses and there are limits to the number of students allowed in the waitlist queue.
  • Students cannot waitlist multple sections of the same course.
  • Adding your name to a waitlist does not register you for the class; you must register through Bannerweb after receiving the email that an opening is available.
  • Students have 24 hours to to register for the opening in the class or they lose their place in the queue.

 Waitlist instructions:

  1. Log into Bannerweb.
  2. Go to the registration tab and select the CRN of the course you wish to add.
  3. Submit to save your CRN selection.
  4. You will receive a registration error telling you the course is closed.
  5. Under the dropdown bar, select the "waitlisted" option.
  6. Submit to save your waitlist request
  7. Watch your UIW email for an email.
  8. You will have 24 hours to register for the course.  Follow steps 1 through 3 above.  If you do not register within 24 hours, you will be dropped from the waitlist queue and the seat will be offered to the next student on the waitlist queue.
