Once you fill out the enrollment request form, your advisor will receive an email from our office asking them to approve or deny your course choice and alternate course choice. (Enrollments are processed on a first come, first-served basis; therefore, we encourage students to choose an alternate should their first choice be unavailable.)
  3. Payment: Payment in full is required for registration. Students will be notified of balance due when we have received both the request to register and advisor approval. Payment is due within 2 business days of the date the notice was emailed; the request will be finalized if payment is completed in a timely manner. Please email glsbursar@wesleyan.edu with any questions regarding payment.

Once we have your registration request, approval from your advisor, and payment in full, we will process your registration and email you a confirmation of registration. Completed registrations are processed in the order they are received.

If you are currently on leave, please contact your class dean for approval to return for Winter Session 2022. If approved, your class dean will issue a DAF to the Registrar's office and we will process your request once that has been completed, and we have your completed request.

Students will be contacted by their class dean and dropped from Winter Session; tuition charges will be reversed. Please discuss this schedule with your advisor when you request approval to register for Winter Session.
