Below you will find tabs to all sorts of registation related information.  If you are not yet a Wesley student please visit the Admissions page for information on admission to Wesley.

Prior to Registration

Read the Registration Instructions

It is important for you to read this information in detail before registering. The schedule in PDF form is available on the Catalog & Courses page.  There is a separate J-Term page for information about the J-Term courses.

Visit your Faculty Advisor

You are strongly encouraged to meet with your faculty advisor once per semester. Your advisor is listed on the "My Profile" page when you are logged in to WesleyWeb. During your first semester you must meet with your advisor and submit a Degree Plan Worksheet to the Registrar's Office.  Again, when a student is roughly 2/3 of the way through their degree program they will be required to meet with their advisor again and submit to the Registrar's Office an updated Degree Plan. Failure to submit these plans will result in blocked registration.

Check the status of your Student Account

As described in the Holds and Warnings tab, outstanding balances and other missing information may result in registration holds.  You can check the status of your account by checking the "My Holds and Warnings" page on WesleyWeb.

Limited Enrollment / Priority Pre-Registration

LIMITED ENROLLMENT PRE-REGISTRATION

Certain courses in the Course Schedule are designated by the faculty as Limited Enrollment. Limited Enrollment Priority Registration is a two-week period at the beginning of each registration term. During this period you may request registration in a limited enrollment courses by adding yourself to the waitlist.

At the end of the two-week period, students will be sorted by the Registrar's Office according to their proximity to graduation. If the course fills, students are placed on the waitlist for the course in the same priority order. Any registrations for Limited Enrollment courses received after this 2-week period will be added to the end of the waitlist on a "first-come" basis, or registered directly into the course if there are seats available.

After Registration

After the Registration Period has ended you will be unable to make registration changes on WesleyWeb.  Thus, any changes in registration must be made in writing on a Registration Form, and late fees may be assessed. Non-attendance does not constitute a course drop. Professors take attendance and the Registrar's Office makes every effort to contact non-attending students, however, it is the your responsibilty to make registration modifications within the given deadlines and to communicate with their professors or the Registrar's Office as needed. Students who fail to attend a course will owe tuition per the pro-rated drop schedule printed in the Catalog and described above.
 

Registration Holds and Warnings

The following circumstances will result in a hold on your account that will prohibit you from registering:

Washington Theological Consortium Registration

Your registration will be processed by the Registrar's Office and you will receive an email copy of the form that Wesley's Registrar's Office sends to the host Consortium school.

Please note:  Wesley's Registrar's Office will not officially register you for your Consortium class until we receive confirmation from the host school that there is room in their class.  Thus the registration process can take several days or weeks even, depending on the schedule of the host school's Registrar's Office.

Master's Students wishing to undertake a Directed Study with a faculty member must submit a proposal.  Directed Study proposals should be submitted to the Dean's Office on a Directed Study Application form during the registration period.
