Online Registration Instructions

Continuing, returning (readmitted), and transfer students should register online at www.wvstateu.edu.  Transient students (or their representatives) must register in person at the Office of Registration and Records in 128 Ferrell Hall.

Online Registration for Fall Semester 2011 will take place April 4-August 12 and August 19-23.  Following the initial sequence of assigned registration slots April 4-15, open registration will begin on April 18.  

In order to register online for Fall Semester 2011, a student must be fully admitted and have seen an academic advisor and received a registration PIN.  Registration PINs are semester specific—you need to obtain a new one from your academic advisor each semester.  If you have not seen your advisor, do so immediately.  Registration slots are assigned on a priority basis according to classification: students who do not see their advisors until after registration begins may miss their primary registration slots: i.e., they will "go to the end of the line" for electronic registration. 

1.         If you have not seen your advisor, contact the office of your department or program immediately to determine whether they have your Registration PIN.  If they do not have your registration PIN number, contact the College Office of your major department  to see where your PIN number has been sent.

            College of Professional Studies                      520 Wallace Hall         304-766-3081

2.         Once you have determined that your department has your Registration PIN, see your advisor to review your course needs.  At the end of your advising session, you will be given your Registration PIN and registration time slots.

3.         When you have obtained your Registration PIN, prepare a worksheet which contains

            a.         your LDAP ID (A#) and LDAP Password (the numbers used to access MyState)

            b.         your Registration PIN for the upcoming term

c.         the index numbers (the 4-digit CRN) for all of the classes you intend to take

d.         index numbers for alternative classes 

4.         With this worksheet in hand, proceed to register online using MyState.

5.         Print out a copy of your schedule for your records.

Important:  When you register online you will have 15 minutes to complete your registration—the system will end your session when you reach your time limit.  Before you end your registration session, be sure that you SUBMIT your new classes (You may also SUBMIT each class as you register for it).  If you exit or are timed out before you submit your courses, you will lose what you have entered and will have to restart the registration process. 

To Register Online:  Go to www.mystate.wvstateu.edu and follow the directions on the screen. 

If your LDAP PIN is your birthdate, please note that the number sequence is mmddyy.

Students should routinely monitor all of their records through MyState.  In particular, whenever a student takes an action which is entered into the data system—adds/drops classes, generates/pays a bill, changes a major, earns a grade, etc.—the student should confirm the accuracy of this action by checking the record in MyState.
