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 “Fall 2021.”  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 View Holds 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 March 3 and April 5.  Some programs will offer early advising/registration before March 22 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.

  5. REGISTER (ADD/DROP) ONLINE 7 AM ON YOUR DAY
    Online registration opens at 7:00AM
    Through your myWestfield account

    Liberal Studies/Exploratory/Undeclared Students:
    Go to Parenzo Hall K/L for foundation or major course registrations — with assistance, students may access major-restricted seats.


PERMISSION TO ENROLL FORMS ARE ACCEPTED EARLY
Students who know they will be blocked from entering a class (major/class restriction, missing pre- or co-requisites, etc….) may submit a “Permission to Enroll” form with appropriate signatures before their registration day. This form may not be used for “closed section” or “closed to your class or major/reserved” registration error messages.
