WebAdvisor Registration Help for Students
Registration is the initial process of signing up for courses each term. Consistent with W&L's principle that students bear responsibility for their academic choices and progress, each student selects sections to register into each term. You create a list of preferred courses in WebAdvisor, then when your window opens, you determine which section is moved to registered or waiting-list status. The system checks for open seats and for appropriate qualifications, including adviser registration authorization, prerequisites, instructor consent, time conflicts, etc.
Drop/add is the process of adjusting your class schedule during the first few days of each term. All degree-seeking students are required to be registered for a full-time load for each term (minimum 12 credits during fall and winter terms, four credits for spring term) by the end of the drop/add period. There is no charge for these transactions during the initial free drop/add period, though late fees begin going up quickly afterwards.
