REGISTRATION ELIGIBILITY

In order to register for classes, you must first meet admission requirements

REGISTRATION HOURS

Registration is conducted online via WebAdvisor.  You may view a WebAdvisor online demonstration and text documentation on how to register at wainfo.waketech.edu. Click on the WebAdvisor tab at the top and then Current Students.

WebAdvisor is open for registration 24 hours a day with the exception of 1 a.m. - 4 a.m. Monday - Friday and 6 a.m. - 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday for system backups. WebAdvisor will allow registration starting at 6 a.m. on your registration priority date. 

Every effort will be made to maintain these hours of operation. However, the college reserves the right to close the system as necessary. Should you access the site and the system does not respond you will be given instructions . 

Walk-in registration will also be available for students in the Student Services Building on selected days prior to the start of the semester. Registration dates are listed on the priority dates calendar.

Please keep in mind that you cannot register via the web or walk in prior to your registration priority date.

HOW TO SEARCH AND REGISTER FOR CLASSES 

Note: If you simply want to search the schedule of classes, you do not need a user ID or a password. You can click on Prospective Students or Current Students and then click Search for Sections without an ID or password! 

  1. Log in to WebAdvisor
  2. Click on Current Students. 
  3. Click Register for Sections then click on Search and Register. 
  4. On the Search/Register for Sections page, select the term you wish to search. Click on the drop-down arrow beside Term and click the term you want to register for. You must also select at least one other search parameter (subject, sections meeting after, sections meeting before, day of the week, course title keyword, location or instructor’s last name). 
  5. Select Term and at least one other search parameter, click SUBMIT. A list of sections based on your search will be returned. 
  6. If it is YOUR REGISTRATION DATE OR AFTER, you can proceed with registration. In the Action block beside the course(s) for which you wish to register, use the drop-down arrow to select RG-Register. When finished, click SUBMIT. To know more about Registration Priority Dates, click here.
  7. WebAdvisor will return a Registration Results page. If you encountered no error messages, your status will show “Registered.” At this point, you can click OK. You have completed your registration for the selected section(s).
  8. You can add yourself to the waitlist for a closed section. If a seat becomes available, you will automatically be enrolled in that section.

HOW TO RESERVE SECTIONS PRIOR TO YOUR REGISTRATION DATE 

  1. Follow steps 1-5 from the section above.
  2. From this list of sections, you can start to build your list of preferred sections. If the status of the class is open, that means that seats are still available and that you can select this section by clicking in the box under the column Select Section(s). (You may want to select multiple sections in case certain sections are closed on your registration date). Remember, you are not registering now; you are simply building a list of preferred sections. 
  3. If it is BEFORE your registration date, this is as far as you can go. You can continue to add to your list of preferred sections, but you cannot register until your registration date. (If you try, WebAdvisor will send a message saying that Form 1402 (5-23-13). You cannot register before your assigned date and time.) When your date to register arrives, you will use the Register for Previously-Selected Sections option. 
  4. WebAdvisor will return a Registration Results page. If you encountered no error messages, your status will show “Registered.” At this point, you can click OK. You have completed your registration for the selected section(s). 
  5. You can add yourself to the waitlist for a closed section. If a seat becomes available, you will automatically be enrolled in that section.

HOW TO USE WAITLISTING 

  1. Log in to WebAdvisor
  2. If a class section you want to register for is full, choose WL under Action to place yourself on a waitlist for the class. 
  3. If a seat becomes available you will be automatically enrolled as long as there are no conflicts with other classes on your schedule.
  4. Remember to check your class schedule. You will need to drop any classes you no longer want.
