Registration information


NOTE: Updated due to COVID-19 response

Please view the documents below for updated information on course offerings, curriculum changes, Advising Week, and registration processes. Advising for J-Term and Spring registration may occur in a variety of formats - in person, by email, phone, or video conferencing. Your faculty advisor will contact you by email with specific information about advising in early November. Please contact your faculty advisor by November 10 if you have not heard from them by then. 
  • Registration Information for Spring 2021 (info on PSY 331, STAT 145, PSY 491 and Senior Seminar descriptions, 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 CASSH Core requirements. Effective May 26, 2019, the Communication Studies department moved 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.

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 in-person, virtual, or phone appointment to help with course selection. Advising holds for students with less than 90 credits will be posted on WINGS approximately two weeks prior to the start of registration. You must communicate with your advisor in order to have the hold removed. All students are strongly encouraged 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 use in their advising appointments.

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. Sign up for advising according to your advisor’s instructions. Some will schedule via online calendar link.
  2. Read all of the registration information for the upcoming semester. It includes information about the Senior Seminar(s) available (PSY 495), special topics courses (PSY 491)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), CASSH 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). Students who come to appointments without preparation may be asked to reschedule.
