At this website, you can register for classes, view grades, check meal plan points, review account activity and more.
Freshmen Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. (CST) on Tuesday, July 17.
You will access University-wide web applications, such as WebSTAC, using your WUSTL KEY. You should have received instructions regarding WebSTAC by mail. Please log into WebSTAC to ensure your access. If you have issues with log in, please call (314) 935-5959.
For the registration process, you will be assisted by your four-year advisor in Engineering Student Services. His/her name will be listed on WebSTAC as your advisor.
After you have logged into WebSTAC, you can see the name of your four-year advisor by clicking on the "Advisor" link on the left side of the screen. Please feel free to contact your four-year advisor if you have any questions about course selection or registration.
Some questions and issues cannot be resolved until you arrive on campus for orientation. There is sufficient time to resolve all issues and be fully registered before classes begin. For example, lab sections in chemistry and physics do not meet until the second week of classes. It is normal for students to be "waitlisted" in some courses.
The most common registration error arises when students try to enroll in a section that is full. Both the lecture and subsection/laboratory section must have seats available. Please refer to the online course listings to view the enrollment limits and available seats in each section.
If you are unable to register for a subsection or laboratory section that you truly need, register in an open laboratory section (even if it poses a conflict with your schedule). If you have such a conflict, e-mail Rachel Linck in Chemistry immediately, and tell her why you need to be enrolled in a specific closed section. She will assist you and put you on the "wait list" queue for a section.
If you are unable to register for a discussion section that you truly need, still register in an open discussion section (even if it poses a conflict with your schedule). If you have such a conflict, e-mail Blake Thornton in Mathematics immediately, and tell him why you need to be enrolled in a specific closed section.
Students who wish to enroll in Physic 197 will be placed on a waitlist. To ensure that at least half the seats in Physics 197 are made available to incoming freshmen from all schools, the physics department manually enrolls students in the course from a waitlist, giving priority to incoming freshmen. Please note that waitlist numbers are not necessarily good indicators of whether you will get into the course.
If you are interested in taking Physics 197, place yourself on the waitlist during your registration period. You will be notified at your campus email address prior to the start of classes if a seat in Physics 197 is available. If a seat is not available, the physics department will assist you in registering for Physics 117A. Please do not simultaneously register for Physics 197 and 117A (these students may be dropped from Physics 197).
If you are unable to register for a lecture/lab section that fits your schedule, select an open section (even if it poses a conflict with your schedule). If a seat opens up in a section you prefer, you can modify your enrollment on WebSTAC. Be sure to select the Change (CHG) option and not the Drop option, so you don't lose your seat in the lecture course in the process of making a change to your schedule. Lab sections will not begin until after Labor Day, so there will be time to resolve any lab scheduling conflicts once you arrive on campus. Details will be provided in lecture on the first day of class. If you have additional questions, please e-mail Mairin Hynes in Physics.
Courses which are not specifically required (e.g., humanities/social sciences, elective engineering courses) may fill before you register. For these filled courses you will need to choose other courses. The registration system is designed so that as you progress through your four years on campus your registration “priority” moves higher (i.e., earlier). Some of the more popular courses in Arts & Sciences fill during the first day that seniors are allowed to register, and you may have to wait that long before you can enroll in them. Also, for some courses, priority is given to departmental majors (e.g., some art courses) and you may never be allowed to enroll in these courses because majors always fill the sections.
