Registration (enrollment) is done online and begins each April for the following summer and fall semesters, and each November for the following spring semester.
Are you eligible to enroll?
People eligible to enroll in classes at WSU include:
If you were previously enrolled at WSU more than two years ago or have just graduated with your bachelor's degree, reactivate your record. Students whose previous enrollment was only non-degree (college guest, high school guest, non-degree open admission or general non-degree) must apply through the appropriate Admissions Office for degree-bound admission.
If you have not been admitted to WSU, click here for more information on admission.
If you are an international student in F-1 status, you will need to complete the check-in process before enrolling.

Add/Drop a Class
Adding or dropping a class can be done through myWSU during the add/drop period, which can be found on the Semester Calendar. To add or drop a class:
For more information about registration changes, read “Step by Step Guide to Registration” in the Quick Links box at the top of this page.
Prior to the end of the second week of classes (or the proportional equivalent for shorter classes), the University reserves the right to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment, or to make reassignment of instructors due to extraordinary circumstances. A full refund of enrollment fees will be automatically authorized for students who are enrolled in a class which has been cancelled. If you wish to use the refund (credit) from the cancelled class to pay the tuition for a replacement class you are “ADDING,” then you must process a “DROP” for the cancelled class at the same time you process an “ADD” for the replacement class. This must be done within the Add period for the term affected. Unless you are going to use the credit for another course, you do not have to “DROP” the cancelled course yourself. If you do nothing, we will drop the cancelled course from your schedule at the end of the second week of classes (or the proportional equivalent for shorter classes) and authorize a full refund (as appropriate).
Partial or complete withdrawals require the student to drop each course via the onilne system at mywsu.wichita.edu. Any refunds owed to you will be used to offset any financial obligations you may have at the university. If your financial aid paid all or part of your costs, all or a portion of any refund goes back to that financial aid source.
Refunds will be issued by the Accounts Receivable Office according to the policy on their website. Refunds will be directly deposited to the bank account you have specified or will be mailed to you by the Accounts Receivable Office. No one other than the Office of Financial Operations and Business Technology in 201 Jardine Hall or the Tuition Refund Board of Appeals is authorized to determine the amount of tuition refund a student will receive.
Students who, because of extenuating circumstances, seek a higher refund than is available by policy, must petition the Tuition Refund Board of Appeals. Petition forms are available at the Office of Financial Operations, 201 Jardine Hall or online. The petition must be filed with the appropriate documentation. A petition for tuition refund beyond the policy must be filed at the Office of Financial Operations within the semester the course was taken.
Senior Citizen Waiver and Enrollment
In accordance with the Kansas Board of Regents policy, students who are at least 60 years of age may audit (no-credit) regular lecture or certain group activity courses without payment of tuition when there is space available and for which they meet the prerequisites. Senior Auditors must, however, pay any applicable facilities use fees, workshop fees or lab/special course fees. Please be aware that you will receive a 1098-T tax form from WSU. Even though some of the fees for the audited class can be scholarshipped by the University, we are required by the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) to provide you with a 1098-T form.
Prerequisites include admission to graduate school for graduate courses, and program admission for courses in which program admission is required of all students.
To receive the tuition waiver, Senior citizens must:
Senior citizens who wish to receive college credit must pay full fees and must register following the steps for online registration above.
