First-Year Pre-Registration Process
During First-Year pre-registration, students will be enrolled in two courses, a First Year Seminar and a first-year appropriate course.
First-Year pre-registration takes place during June and July for the Fall semester. In August, students will review their course enrollments and then participate in August pre-registration. Once the semester begins, students will then participate in the in-semester drop/add period.
It is very important to recognize how the First-Year pre-registration phase flows into pre-registration. For instance, all courses ranked during First-Year pre-registration that do NOT become enrollments are automatically transferred to pre-registration. In essence, this allows students to have a significant portion of their pre-registration plan in place for their initial faculty advisor meetings in August.
It is imperative that students complete all of the First-Year pre-registration sections on Academic Interests and Interests & Goals. This information serves at least two purposes. It assists The Office of Academic Affairs in assigning students to faculty advisors and serves as a tool for students to craft an academic plan of study for their four years at Wesleyan.
The First-Year pre-registration phase is the only period that does NOT require any sort of faculty advisor or University approval.
