Your credit limit cannot be raised until drop/add.



  • During Planning you should set up your plan, which is a ranked list of your course choices.
  • Your faculty advisor must finalize your plan via WesPortal.


  • The Pre-Registration system will schedule students into courses based on class standing, major preference, seat availability, the number of times you have previously requested the course and, when appropriate, whether you have met the pre-requisites or have the permission of the instructor.
  • The Pre-Registration system will attempt to schedule you into each of your seven ranked choices three times.
  • You can preview your preliminary schedule after Scheduling is run.
  • You will be assigned a date and time when the adjustment period will open for you.


  • The adjustment period will open in a staggered order, based on the number of courses you have in your preliminary schedule and your class year.
  • Once the adjustment period opens for you:
    • You can add courses that still have seats available;

  • Do not add courses which exclude your class year/major. The system does not allow this.  Class year/major exclusions are identified in WesMaps with an Xin the seat designation.
  • Do not rank the same course and section twice, it will not increase your chance of being scheduled in the course.
  • Do not forget to select the section(s) of a course you rank. Click “Section” and identify sections you would like the scheduling program to consider. You can choose one, multiple, or any section.
