Registration information


Please view the documents below for updated information on course offerings, curriculum changes, Advising Week, and registration processes. We also REQUIRE that you print out, complete, and bring the second document with you to your advising appointment. It will speed up the advising process and help you plan.
  • Registration Information for Fall 2019 (info on PSY 331, STAT 145, Senior Seminar description, new Nature & Forest Therapy option, etc.). You can see a checklist of major requirements that includes the courses being offered in bold italics.
    • IMPORTANT change to the Fine Arts category in the CLS Core requirements. Effective May 26, 2019, the Communication Studies department will move from the School of Arts and Communication to the College of Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities (CASSH). As a result, beginning summer 2019, CST courses will not satisfy the Fine Arts category in the BA/BS Core. Beginning summer 2019, CST courses will satisfy the Social Science or Humanities requirement in the BA/BS Core. Use the attached list instead of the Advisement Report to identify the BA/BS Core requirement(s) satisfied with CST courses.
  • Registration course planning document (print and complete to aid the advising process. NOTE: You need to be signed in to your browser with your UWL Office 365 account to access automatically. If you can't access the document, you are logged in with some other personal account.)
  • Sample Graduation Plan. Are you a couple of semesters from graduating and want to be clear on your remaining requirements? Download these instructions on how to create a detailed graduation plan using sections from your Advisement Report.

Advising Week

Advising Week is held several weeks before registration opens in WINGS. All Psychology majors will receive an email from their designated advisor in WINGS to schedule a brief appointment to help with course selection. All Psychology majors with less than 90 credits will have an advising hold that prevents registration. Attending an advising appointment will remove the hold. However, all students are welcome to set up advising appointments even if they do not have holds in WINGS. The department wants to encourage you to get to know your faculty advisor so they can help your career development as you progress through the major. Students are required to complete a course planning worksheet (linked above) to bring with them to their advising appointments. If your schedule doesn't overlap with your advisor that week, you are welcome to find another day prior to your registration time in WINGS.

Steps to Prepare for your Advising Appointments:


  1. Check your UWL email inbox, clutter folder, or junk mail folder for a message from your advisor in WINGS. If you don’t know your advisor, you can find it in the right column in the Student Center when you log in to WINGS (Kathy Elgin for Milestone #1 students, and PSY faculty for Milestone #2 students). Sign up for advising according to your advisor’s instructions. Some will schedule via online calendar link, and others may require that you sign up on a form on their office door. Students currently studying abroad can arrange via email.
  2. Read all of the registration information for the upcoming semester. It includes information about PSY-specific STAT 145 sections, the Senior Seminar(s) available (PSY 495), and includes one-page handouts with the full PSY requirements and courses offered next semester.
  3. Log in to WINGS and use your Advisement Report (AR) to check progress on General Education, College Core, progress on 40 credits of 300- and 400-level courses, your major(s), CLS Program Option/emphasis/minor(s), and any pre-health or law requirements. Going through all of the requirements will help you identify potential courses. You can also run your own What-If Reports in WINGS to see how requirements would change if you changed majors or minors.
  4. Download and complete the Registration Course Planning Document (on your mobile device or printed). You MUST bring this to your advising appointment. Students who come to appointments without preparation will be asked to reschedule.
