Prior to registration, all students should know the following:
Online registration is available 24 hours a day during the registration period. During late registration, registration hours will be 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. in the Office of Student Records.
Note: on the Monday before the start of the term, faculty will be on campus all day specifically for advising returning students who have not yet registered. On that day, you may register in the Office of Student Records.
Please note: Returning students who initiate registration during the late registration period will be assessed the $110 late fee. This fee does not apply to new students or re-admitted students. New students should contact the Office of Admission, 817-531-4422, for information on freshmen and transfer student registration dates.
Freshmen are not allowed to register online. All freshmen, including transfer students with fewer than 31 completed hours, must be advised and register in the Freshman Advising Center.
The normal undergraduate class load is 15 hours. Twelve credit hours is the minimum class load for fulltime student status during the fall or spring semesters. Undergraduate students enrolled in fewer than 12 hours are considered part-time students.
Eighteen (18) hours is the maximum class load for which a student may register during the fall or spring semester without special permission. Students with a grade point average of 3.0 or better for the previous Semester, and with the acceptable cumulative grade point average, may register for 19 or more hours with the permission of the dean of the student's school. An overload request form must be secured in advance and presented to the respective Dean's Office for processing. This form is available online and in the Office of Student Records.
You may not register online for Internships, Independent Studies, or Conference Courses. You must have the Internship Form or Independent Study/Conference Course Form filled out with the appropriate signatures. The syllabus must also be attached to the form in order to register. These forms are available in the Office of Student Records and the Dean's offices. Bring the form and syllabus with your registration card to the Office of Student Records.
Once you have registered, you may add or drop a course online or in the Office of Student Records throughout the open registration period. Keep in mind that dropping or adding courses will alter your degree audit, and required courses should not be dropped without seeing your advisor. During late registration periods (see Registration Times) you may add or drop courses in the Office of Student Records with the proper paperwork.
Once classes have begun, courses may still be dropped but will show a grade of "DP" on your transcript. Any courses dropped after the last drop day (check Academic Calendar) will show a grade of "F" on your transcript.
Tuition and fees will be refunded at 100% if a course is dropped before the first day of classes. Courses dropped after classes have begun will be refunded according to the refund policy as indicated in the university catalog.
If a class is cancelled, you will be contacted by the Dean's office. You will have the option to enroll in another course.
A $110 late fee will be charged to your account if you are a returning student and you register during the late registration periods (see Registration Times).
If you plan to take courses at another institution while attend Texas Wesleyan, you must complete the Concurrent Enrollment Form available online or in the Office of Student Records.
If you have questions concerning Blackboard classes, please call 817-531-4428. Select Option 1 from the menu directed answering service to receive assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Final grades are available on RamLink approximately one week after the last exam date. Grade reports are not mailed to students.
Online registration is available for seniors, juniors and sophomores except for the new first semester senior, junior, or sophomore transfer students who must register in the Office of Student Records, and probationary students who must also register in the Office of Student Records. Freshmen and new freshmen transfer students must register in the Freshman Advising Center.
If you cannot access the system or are unable to complete your registration, please contact the IT Help Desk at 817-531-4428, Monday through Friday 8:00AM. - 5:00PM. If you need assistance outside of those hours, please leave a message at the above number. If, after contacting the IT Help Desk, you still cannot register, please call the Office of Student Records at 817-531-4414.
Seniors may register without seeing an advisor although they are strongly encouraged to do so. If you are on probation, you must see your advisor prior to registration. All other students must meet with their advisor and be cleared for online registration. Course information is available online. To register for an internship, independent study, or TAP course, you will need to fill out the appropriate form with all required signatures and register for these classes in the Office of Student Records. Students are responsible for following their degree audit and should plan accordingly because some classes are not offered every semester.
