Welcome Back Students

August 2021

Welcome Back Students!

As the start of the Fall 2021 semester approaches (August 30th), I call some important information to your attention.  Please refer to the recently updated Colonels Combat COVID: Returning for the 2021-22 Academic Year page on our website for further information on any restrictions and instructions on class safety protocols.

Fall 2021 Class Schedule

Please remember to retrieve an up-to-date copy of your Fall 2021 Class Schedule via the MYWilkes portal as close to the start of classes as possible, as some room assignments may change. 

Note that you are formally registered for all courses listing “RE” or “RW” status.  A “WL” status after a particular course means that you are only wait-listed, not registered, for that course; if you are still interested in that particular course/section, you should check directly with the instructor during the first week of classes to see if any openings have occurred due to drop/add activity.  If you gain entry into that class, or wish to drop or add a course, you must submit the appropriate electronic form via the Registrar web page on the link below, thereby securing the proper approvals.  That electronic form will forward to the Registrar’s Office for processing.  Paper forms will also be accepted. 

Registrar Forms

Please note that you must be registered for 12 credits in order to be considered a full time student for billing and financial aid purposes.

Update Personal Information

It is also very important that our office keep up-to-date student information in our records. Please make sure we have your local address and phone number in our system.

Review/Update Your Address & Phone Number
