- Current WWU students
- Community members / Visiting and Non-matriculated students
- Current High School students
- International students
Admitted WWU students continuing from spring use Web4U and follow the Initial Registration Schedule below to register.
Registration is Conducted in Three Phases
Phase I (May 8-11) – Initial Registration Schedule based on graded credits earned.
|9:30 a.m.||G, PB & 210+||150-159||90-99||30-39|
Phase II (May 14-June 25) – a period before the start of the quarter when continuing students can change their schedules and when visiting students register.
Phase III (June 26-July 2) – beginning the first day of the quarter and ending at midnight on the fifth day.
Students may register through the fifth day of the quarter or prior to the second class meeting for most late-start courses 3-5 weeks in length. Early registration is advised to ensure seat availability and to accommodate courses with enrollment limits. After Phase III, all students register in person at the Registrar's Office, OM 230. If the course has already started, then the student will first need to obtain a department override before registering.
Register during Phase I if you were enrolled spring quarter 2017 and you are a formally-admitted, continuing student at Western. The Phase I schedule lists the initial times you can register based on the total number of credits you have completed (credits for which you have grades). This is your first opportunity to register for summer quarter; however, you can register by using Web4U until midnight on the fifth day of the quarter (or in person prior to the second class meeting for most late-start courses). To check your credit total, go to www.wwu.edu, and log in to myWestern, then click the Web4U icon. Do not complete the Summer Registration Application Form.
myWestern/Web4U – Internet Student Services System
You will access Web4U (web registration) via myWestern; however, first you must create a universal login and password.
- Go to WWU’s homepage at www.wwu.edu.
- Click on myWestern link in the upper, right-hand corner of the page.
- Click on the blue sign in button.
- Click on “Activate Account” and follow the instructions.
Once you have the universal login and password, log on to myWestern and click on the Web4U icon on top of the page. You will be directed to enter your W# and PIN and then will be prompted to create a new PIN which must be a minimum of 8 characters, alpha and numeric. Your initial, temporary Personal Identification Number (PIN) will be your date of birth in the following case-sensitive format ddmmmyyyy (ex: 03apr1980).
If you are unable to register due to a hold on your account, go to myWestern, Web4U, Student, Student Records, View Holds. Contact the department listed in the description of the hold for additional information or to clear the hold. For example, a "SA" hold indicates an unpaid balance on your account; contact the Student Business Office. See Registration Holds for more information.
If you experience difficulties while registering electronically, make note of the "Registration Add Error" message. Please contact the professor or the academic department for error messages concerning things such as department/college requirements, pre-requisites, closed classes, class standing, and overrides.
Some courses are offered for a variable number of credits. When registering on Web4U for a course with variable credit, you will be registered for the minimum number of credits for the course. It is necessary to return to the Registration menu to change the number of credits. Click on Change Variable Credit Hours and enter the correct number of credits. Beginning the sixth day of the quarter, students must bring written permission from the instructor to the Registrar’s Office to increase the credits.
Students are responsible for ensuring that they have satisfied all prerequisites and restrictions before registering for a course. Students who register for a course without satisfying prerequisites may be required by the instructor to withdraw from the course.
Due to pedagogical reasons, some courses are restricted to certain levels of students (students who are declared majors or those who have received special permission from the instructor). Restrictions are listed in the online Timetable or in ClassFinder and are subject to change by the departments.
You are responsible for your conduct on the electronic registration systems. Students who tamper or attempt to tamper with the registration records of another student, including but not limited to, dropping or adding courses and improper use of overrides, may be subject to disciplinary action.
