PennWest students register for classes well in advance. In the midst of one semester, you'll hear, "It's time to register for next semester's classes!"
Even if it seems like the next semester is a long way off, it's important to register on your assigned day. Timely registration maximizes your ability to register for the classes you need.
You also will see whether any "holds" have been placed on your registration. If a hold is present, you must contact the office that placed the hold on your account and make arrangements to clear it before you can register.
All students will have a registration time ticket assigned. Students are able to see their registration time ticket through their Student Profile via myPennWest, by clicking Registration and then Prepare for Registration in Student Self-Service.
Registration begins at 8am on the dates below based on your class standing.
Winter 2023 / Spring 2024 registration begins on October 23, 2023, for all groups. The schedule will be available to view via Self-Service beginning on October 9, 2023.

All students have an advising hold on their account; they must reach out to their academic advisor for removal of the hold. Students can review their advising hold, and any other hold, on their Student Profile or on the Prepare for Registration link in myPennWest.
The schedule can be accessed through myPennWest. Click on Student Self-Service, Student Profile, Registration and then Browse Class Schedule to begin.

All class searches should begin by selecting the subject of the course you are looking for. You can also restrict the search to a specific campus by entering it in the search box.
Beginning in Fall 2023 courses will not have a leading A, C or E. An example: AENG, CENG or EENG now shows as ENGL or subject English.
Section numbers appearing after the course number also represent the location of the course.
Students who wish to register for a course at another PennWest campus may require a permit from the department to be able to register for the course. Some courses have space restrictions based on campuses. Permits for restricted courses may be requested from the department offering the course.
Please check your “Prepare for Registration” link in the Registration section to determine your Time Ticket registration window.
