Following the steps below will help to ensure a smooth registration process:

  1. CHECK REGISTRATION STATUS/CLASS LEVEL
    Log onto myWestfield select the “Registration” tab and then “Registration Status.” When prompted enter “Spring 2018.”  This screen will show your registration status and class level for the registration dates noted above.

  2. CHECK HOLDS
    To view what holds you have, click “view holds” at the bottom of the Registration Status page.  Holds may be placed on accounts at any time, check this screen often!!!

    ALL HOLDS MUST BE CLEARED BEFORE YOU CAN REGISTER!

  3. MEET WITH YOUR ADVISOR/CHECK REGISTRATION PIN
    Each class will have their own advising week between October 23 and November 17.  Some programs will offer early advising/registration before October 23 and students will be personally informed of this option (Honors/Banacos).

    Print your audit to bring to your advising appointment:  myWestfield – Registration – Student Favorites – Degree Evaluation.

    You must have your advising form signed!  Your advisor/department will issue you an “Alternate Registration PIN” to use when you register online.

    Check your alternate PIN.  Although the registration window is not open, you can check the accuracy of that pin by selecting “Add/Drop Classes” under “Registration Step-by-Step” on the “Registration” tab.  When prompted enter your alternate PIN number to receive one of the following messages:

      Message
    If your PIN is GOOD “you are not permitted to register at this time”
    If your PIN is BAD “authorization failure - invalid alternate PIN”
  4. SELECT/SEARCH COURSES

    During or after your advising appointment use the Course Offerings Booklet to find available courses and begin to build your schedule.  You may also us the online course search (Registration – Search Classes) to find available courses along with any restrictions (major, class, etc…) and pre-co-requisites.  Remember that students may register for a maximum of 17 credits during the pre-registration period. Additional credits may be added during add/drop at the beginning of the next term.

    NEW THIS SEMESTER:  First-year students who entered Fall 2017 (not including transfers) MUST self-select a Spring 2018 first-year only section.  These courses are listed at the end of the course offerings booklet and searchable online by selecting “First-Year Only Course” under the campus option.
