Online registration for the Summer and Fall 2023 semesters will begin on April 17.
Students may register for courses at any time on or after their designated registration date found via myWidener. Online registration will close for the Summer 2023 term at 11:59 PM on Wednesday, May 31. Fall 2023 term registration will close at 11:59 PM on Saturday, August 26. Any changes to registration after the closing dates must be communicated to and made by the Registrar’s Office.
Waitlists will be in effect for the registration period. Available seats for all waitlists will be held for 7 days. If you are on a waitlist, you are advised to check your email at least once a week for notification of an available seat. During the first week of classes, the available waitlisted seats will be held for 24 hours.
Carefully look at the examination time and examination type to plan an acceptable examination schedule as well as course schedule. If you do not want exams on consecutive days (e.g., an exam on Monday and another on Tuesday), then don't schedule those classes. A student may request that a final exam be moved if:
Students may not take more than 2 intensive course/pre-semester course credits (these intensive/pre-semester course credits, offered prior to the beginning of the semester, will not be factored into a student’s overload status).
Summer Credits: Students enrolling in summer courses may take a maximum of 6 credits.
Fall/Spring Credits: Regular Division students must enroll for a minimum of 12 credits and a maximum of 16 credits.
Extended Division students must enroll for a minimum of 8 credits and a maximum of 11 credits.
Overload Exceptions: Intensive/pre-semester course credits will not contribute to an overload of credits.
Any student in the Academic Success Program (GPA less than 2.300) must meet with the Dean of Students before registering for classes.
