How to register for classes:

2. Check your degree audit in connections and consult your GCP worksheet for the courses you need to complete in the GCP or your minor.
3. Check Courses@WVPU for courses on offer in the upcoming term or semester and compare those to the courses you still need to complete. Notes on cross-listing, course prerequisites, and scheduling irregularities for each course can be found at the bottom of the screen.

  • If a course fulfills a GCP requirement, a note with the knowledge area and the skill area will be listed in [brackets] behind the course name (ex. Design Concepts [ARTS/OCOM])

4. Choose courses and complete the Registration Planning Sheet;

  • Course selections should adhere to all prerequisite requirements as indicated on the schedule and should be free of time conflicts. 
  • If you choose a course scheduled as TBA, please also provide an alternate course.

5. Using Starfish, make an appointment with your faculty advisor to discuss your course selection and registration;

  • Make sure to schedule any appointments at least 24 hours in advance.
  • Bring your completed Registration Planning Sheet to the meeting.

After receiving your faculty advisor’s approval, please submit this form to your department coordinator(s).
