The University of West Florida offers online registration and schedule changes. New and readmitted students will register for courses through My UWF with a limited number of apps. Currently enrolled students register in MyUWF. Online registration is available 24 hours a day, with the exception of: Mondays from 12:45 AM to 6:30 AM and Tuesdays through Fridays from 3:45 AM - 4:30 AM. The following steps will guide you through the course registration process.
Currently enrolled students should review their SASS audit (available in MyUWF) and discuss your academic plans with your advisor prior to registration. If any student has an "Advising Hold" requiring you to see an advisor, you need to have this hold lifted prior to registration. In order to process your course registration, you will be required to acknowledge responsibility for your course selection and verify that you have reviewed the academic policies and procedures as stated in the Catalog. You are ultimately responsible for knowing and fulfilling all university, college, and major requirements for graduation.
Florida state law and UWF Student Health Policy requires that All students comply with the 1) Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR), and 2) Meningitis/Hepatitis B immunization requirements Before registering for academic courses. An "Immunization Hold" is automatically placed on new student records which prohibit course registration until proof of immunization or immunization waiver forms (below) are received and processed.
For more information on Immunization requirements and to access the immunization waiver forms for online students, please visit the UWF Student Health Services Immunization Requirements web site.
Another great resource to assist you with information regarding registration and related services is the Navigation Guide. This guide is designed to provide you step-by-step assistance and contains valuable tips. We highly recommend that you read through this guide.
The UWF Online Campus Coordinator can answer many of your general questions and will transfer you to the appropriate advisor for your level and program. Contact the Online Campus Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call toll free 1-888-529-1823.
During the second month of a semester, you can log on to either:
My UWF (New and readmitted students) and follow the Registration, Drop/Add, and Trial Schedule link in the Enrollment section.
MyUWF (Currently enrolled students) and follow the Registration, Drop/Add, and Trial Schedule link in the Registration folder. Tabs appear at the top of the page for the current and upcoming semesters (if appropriate). A screen will be displayed giving you a list of links to transactions that you can perform as of that day and time. Follow the link to your Registration Checklist.
The Registration Checklist:
The Trial Schedule process consists of Course Search, the Trial Schedule Worksheet, and a Course Matrix.
You may search for online courses several ways by selecting one of the links under the Course Search directory in the column on the left of this and every page of the Online Campus web site. A separate listing of all “General Education”, “Undergraduate”, or “Graduate” online courses is available by selecting the appropriate link. The “Search All Courses” link allows students to search for courses (including courses not fully online) in a variety of ways, including by department, by instructor, by location, by days and/or times, and even by title.
When you find a course you are interested in, be sure and check out the course description as well as look for the “Syllabus” symbol under the Tech Codes column on the left side of the page. Selecting the “Syllabus” symbol will open the Course Syllabus and provide you the opportunity to find out exactly what will go on in that online course.
The Trial Schedule is a tool available to new and readmitted students through MyUWF. It allows you to plan your schedule, then, if desired, prefill your registration form with the courses you select.
You can prefill the registration form with up to 12 sections selected from the Trial Schedule Worksheet. This worksheet DOES NOT reserve any seats in a course or register you for classes. It is a worksheet only and is there to assist you in planning and developing a schedule. You may select courses through the Course Search directory to add to your Trial Schedule Worksheet. Your worksheet will remain as you have it until you make further changes.
You can get an overview of your planned schedule using the Course Matrix. Courses on the matrix are listed "term: course#" and courses for which you are registered begin with an asterisk (*).
Many Online Campus courses require that you enter a Permission Code to complete the registration process. At the time you meet with your advisor prior to registration, they will give you this code. If you did not get this code from your advisor, contact the Online Campus Coordinator at email@example.com or call toll free 1-888-529-1823.
On the day you are eligible to register through Lighthouse or MyUWF you can either:
Either method will take you to the registration form which looks similar to the following:
If you prefilled your registration form from your worksheet, those reference numbers will appear in the boxes in the "Ref #" column. You may also simply type in reference numbers.
If the section requires permission of the department offering the section, contact that department for a "Permission Authorization Code" and enter that four-digit code in the box in the "Permission Authorization Code" column.
If you wish to take the section under a grading option other than "Letter Grade (A-F)", select either the Pass/Fail or Audit option. If you wish to take a course Pass/Fail, contact your academic advisor or the Office of the Registrar.
You will then press the "Submit" button to process your registration.
Step 5 - Out-of-State Tuition Waiver Eligible?
If you are admitted to one of our 28 degree or certificate programs and reside outside the state of Florida, you may be eligible for a tuition waiver that reduces the out-of-state portion of your tuition anywhere from 100% - 75%. Please review the Tuition Waiver Availability information to determine if you should submit a waiver application.
Step 6 - Finalize Registration
When you "submit" your registration for processing, the results will be displayed in a table like this. If you cannot be registered for a section (i.e., closed, cancelled, etc.), a message will appear telling you if and how the situation can be resolved.
It will also include information on required prerequisites and students should be sure that they meet the appropriate prerequisite. Questions should be directed to the department offering the course.
