Information and step-by-step instructions on how to register for classes:

Students wishing to register for variable hour courses (Directed Study, Independent Study, Internship, Thesis, Dissertation) should see their Academic Advisor who will complete a Variable Credit Hour Course request.

Undergraduate students wishing to register for a 5000 level course must complete the Registration Drop/Add form; registration for the course must be manually done by the Office of the Registrar once the form is submitted.

Registration for non-standard Part of Term courses (Parts of Term 5-9) runs through the 7th day of the month in which the course begins. Any action (add, drop, or withdraw) after that point in time must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar via the Registration Drop/Add form.

In addition to an Advising PIN, all students are also assigned a Time Ticket which specifies when the student is allowed to register. For additional information on Advising PINs and Time Tickets, please see the Previous/Next Steps section at the bottom of this page.

Courses with "I" (Incomplete) grades will not count as meeting the minimum grade for a prerequisite. (Ex: I have an I grade in ENC 1101, which is a prerequisite for ENC 2000. I will not be able to register for ENC 2000 because the grade of an "I" does not meet the minimum prerequisite grade requirement for ENC 2000.


  • Students are now able to use Schedule Planner to create the ideal class schedule.
  • Students also have the ability to waitlist for some courses. Please see Using Waitlists for additional information.

For additional assistance with organizing your schedule, please use one or both of the scheduled organization tools below:

Students may be removed from all courses in which they do not meet the prerequisite requirements.

Important Note for Financial Aid Recipients Regarding Degree Applicable Courses:

The UWF Financial Aid Office cannot award aid to a student for classes that do not count toward his/her degree or minor program. U.S. Department of Education regulation states that classes not counting towards a student’s degree or other recognized credential cannot be used to determine Title IV aid eligibility. 

Any student who receives aid for classes that do not count towards their degree program will be liable for any funds that need to be returned to the Department of Education.

Beginning August 4, 2015, a new process was initiated to notify students who are registered for courses if they have registered for a course that is not applying to their degree requirements. Students can view by accessing the Degree Works audit. If you receive an email from Financial Aid regarding courses that are not applying toward your program, please contact your advisor for further information and options. If you need your advisor's contact information, please access the Advising Status app in MyUWF.

 Why can't I register?

All students are required to meet with their advisor prior to registration in order to receive an Alternate PIN which will allow them access to registration. If a student has not met with his/her advisor, he/she will need to do so in order to gain access to registration.

In addition to PINs, all students have an assigned time in which they can register. Students will not be allowed to register prior to their time ticket. 

Students may also have various holds preventing registration. Students are able to view holds via the Registration Status link in SSB. Students should contact the appropriate office to determine how to have their hold removed.

 Are there restrictions as to the number of credit hours a student may take each term?


  • Undergraduates may take a maximum of 18 credit hours each term. Student athletes, J1, or F1 visa holders must take a minimum of 12 credit hours each term. Students on Academic Probation may only take 14 credit hours while on probation.
  • Masters students may take a maximum of 12 credit hours each term. Student athletes, J1, or F1 visa holders must take a minimum of 9 credit hours each term.
  • Specialist/Doctoral level students may take a maximum of 12 credit hours each term. J1 or F1 visa holders must take a minimum of 9 credit hours each term.
 How do I register for an internship, directed study, or other variable hour course?

Students registering for any variable class (such as internships, directed studies, applied music, dissertations, etc.) must contact the department offering the courses to obtain a Variable Credit Hour Registration Form. The form must be completed by the department and submitted to the Office of the Registrar by the end of drop/add. The Office of the Registrar will create the section of the course and register the student upon receipt of the form.
