WUSTL's online Course Listings will help you determine the dates/times each course is offered.
Steps for viewing courses in online Course Listings:
- Select "Listing" from left menu, under "By Semester"
- Select "FL2012" semester
- Select the school offering the course you want to take, then click "Select Semester and School" button
(e.g., chemistry, math, physics, humanities and social science courses are offered by Arts & Sciences)
- Select the department and click "Select Department and Levels" button
- You will then see a listing of courses offered by that department
- Look to the right to see # of seats and # currently enrolled or on "wait list"
- All courses will have at least one section; sections are identified by number, starting with "01."
- Some courses also have sub-sections or labs/discussion-groups that are identified from "A-Z."
- When sub-sections/labs exist, you must sign up for both a main section number and one of the sub-sections/labs.
It is best to begin your course list by listing those courses that have only one lecture section. Next, list those courses that have two lecture sections, and so on.
In most cases, one lecture section is equivalent to another. If a section has a special purpose, it will be noted in the course description. Many courses have laboratory sections or discussion sections in addition to lecture sections. You must also register for these additional sections if a course has them.
For each course you plan to take, start by making a list of all of the available lecture sections (with open seats) and lab sections (if a course has lab sections). Your list should include:
- Course name (Department number and course number are also needed.)
- Section number
- Days and times each section meets
WebSTAC includes a Registration Worksheet that can be helpful for planning your schedule. It alerts students to conflicts and overlapping class times. NOTE: Entering courses in this worksheet does not register you for these classes. The worksheet is a planning tool and additional steps are required for registration.
- Select "Registration Worksheet" from the left menu in WebSTAC
- For each course you wish to add to your worksheet, you will need:
- Department Code (example: "E60")
- Course Number (example: "120")
- Section Number (example: "01")
- Lab Section/Subsection, if applicable (example: "A")
After creating a list of courses or filling in your Registration Worksheet in WebSTAC, follow instructions for Using WebSTAC to Register.
