Your First Term at WOU as a Transfer Student

You will be able to register for your classes on the first Monday following registration week (Registration week posted on the Academic Calendar). To get assistance for the registration process, make an appointment with an advisor in your intended major area, or with an advisor in the Academic Advising and Learning Center.

Once at WOU (or even before), you should meet with your major and minor advisors to develop and sign a degree plan to be filed in the Registrar's Office. Although departments differ in their timelines for completing this process, you would be wise to submit your degree plan as soon as possible. It will not only keep you on-track for graduation, but also permanently remove your Advising Hold, unless you are placed on Academic Warning. No later than three terms before you expect to graduate, you must file an Application for Undergraduate Degree with the Registrar's Office. Application forms are available in the Registrar's Office.

To ensure that students meet with their academic advisors regularly an Advising Hold is placed on all undergraduate students each term during week 5. It is your responsibility to meet with your advisor prior to registration each term. It is your advisor's responsibility to release the Advising Hold. If you have not met with your major advisor prior to registration, you will not be allowed to register. If you have any questions or problems, come to the Academic Advising and Learning Center.
