General Information

Waiting lists are created when students try to enroll in a class and are given the message that the class is closed. If you want to be put on a waiting list, try to enroll in the class even though you know it is closed. When an opening occurs, you will be notified by email and asked if you are still interested in taking the class.

  • Advance Registration for summer and fall is available to students on the web as indicated in the 'classification' sidebar.
  • Students who are currently enrolled for Spring 2013 may participate.
  • You will only be able to register on and after your specified classification schedule dates and during Open Registration.
  • NOTE: A student's classification will be based on the number of credit hours the student has completed at Washburn and any transfer credit hours that have been posted through end of Fall 2012. Courses in progress (i.e., Spring 2013) will NOT be counted.
  • Staff in the Dean's Office will be available during business hours to answer any questions about how to do registration or to provide assistance with registration. The staff will not enroll students in person but will assist students who are having difficulty with the registration process on the web.

Summer classes begin as shown on the summer course schedule.

Fall classes for returning students begin Monday, August 26, 2013.
