Help! I have a class on North Campus and my next class is on South Campus and I only have 10 minutes to get there. What do I do?
You are encouraged to talk to your professor(s) before switching your class schedule. Some professors are understanding and will allow you to come in a few minutes late or leave a few minutes early to get to your next class. Please remember to talk to your professor(s) early in the semester.
I have a class I am interested in taking that is offered in-person and online. Does it matter which one I take?
No, it does not matter which format you take (online or in-person). It is a matter of personal preference. If you have never taken an online class before you are encouraged to try it to see if you prefer that format.
I am trying to enroll in BIO259 OR BIO269 and the system is saying "Department Consent Required." What do I do?
- Check to make sure the lab section you are trying to enroll in is available for Kinesiology Majors (see sections below)
- If so, please email Ms. Karen Sisofo at KSisofo@wcupa.edu to request permission. Be sure to include:
- Your name
- Student ID Number
- Lecture section
- Preferred lab section
***Please Note- Only email Ms. Sisofo once you can enroll in classes. This means do not make the request prior to your Enrollment Date/Time. ***
I have a class that I am interested in withdrawing from. What will a withdraw look like on my transcript and will it impact my GPA?
Withdrawing from a class will not impact your GPA and will appear as a "W" on your transcript indicating that you withdrew from that class. It is a good idea to contact your advisor before you withdraw from the class.
No, there is no issue. The reason a portion of your schedule is showing up in red is because two (2) of your classes overlap in the same hour. For example, Class #1 meets from 8-9:15am and Class #2 meets from 9:30-10:45am (the red shows up for the 9:00am timeframe).
I am interested in changing my major OR adding/removing a minor. Where do I go in myWCU to submit this change?
You can request a plan change right from myWCU. Log into your account, select the "Academic Records" tile, select "Change/Update/Add Plan" from side menu. Read the instructions and then select the type of change you are requesting from the drop-down menu.
I took a course(s) at my local community college, and I want to transfer them into WCU. How do I go about that?
You should request that the college/university where you completed the course send them to West Chester University’s Registrar’s Office.
I am looking at my class schedule and I do not see a meeting day or time listed for my class. When will the day & time be posted?
If you do not see a day or time listed for your class that means that class meet asynchronously and is 100% online so you will not see a day and time listed.
