Registration is the selection of classes and arrangement for payment of tuition and fees by the appropriate deadline. Students may register and check their current class schedule through Buff Advisor by selecting Student Planning. Regulations governing course selection, pre-requisites, course load and admission requirements are published in the WTAMU catalog or can be obtained from your academic department.

NOTE:  Students who are enrolled will be expected to submit a withdrawal from the University if their plans change.  While deletions for nonpayment are done, if a student has financial aid or scholarships applied to their accounts, these are considered payment and intention to remain enrolled. Students will be responsible for their university tuition/fee/room/board charges unless they withdraw prior to the first class day.  The Withdrawal Form can be found at the Forms link on the right side of this page.

Check the University calendar for other important dates.

Process for Currently Enrolled Students and Admitted Students

  1. Contact your adviser for an appointment. You must be advised for each semester prior to being given access to register.
    • Freshmen and Sophomores: see the  Advising Services website for details on the advising model for your major, Student Success Center, HUB.
    •  Juniors and Seniors: see your academic adviser in the department of your major
    • Graduate Students: see your graduate adviser in the department of your major
  2. Your adviser will "Green Light" you, which does not constitute registration. You must follow-up and register at the appropriate time. Deadlines will be enforced, so make payments on time. Consult Buff Advisor message board for dates.
  3. Financial aid is applied once you accept your aid, even if you are not attending classes.
  4. Bills are not mailed but will be posted on Buff Advisor. An email notification will be sent to your WTAMU assigned student email address.
