Current, readmitted and transfer students have the opportunity to register for classes during an early registration period Nov. 2-15. They can prepare for early registration by visiting with their adviser during Advisement for Success Kickoff (ASK) Week Oct. 26-30. Advisers will set aside additional advising time during this week to meet with students at a time that’s convenient for the students, officials said.
Students can make an appointment to visit with their adviser either by phone, via email or in person at the adviser’s office to discuss their schedule and have their alternate PIN (personal identification number) released, which will allow them to register online through Missouri State-West Plains’ Grizzly Den web portal.
Once students have spoken with their adviser and their alternate PIN has been released, they may register for courses on the Grizzly Den website, 24 hours a day, seven days a week during the early registration period, or they can register in person at the registration and records office in Cass Hall, 515 Cass Ave., from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Officials remind that students are permitted to register during early registration according to a schedule based on the number of credit hours completed. The early registration schedule for the 2016 spring semester can be viewed at http://wp.missouristate.edu/recreg/early-registration.htm. Students are encouraged to register during appointed times, but they also may register after that time, officials said.
Mark White, coordinator of the Veterans Incentive Program (VIP) at Missouri State-West Plains, reminds veterans and their dependents that officials with the Veterans Services office will be on hand during these same advisement and registration times to assist veterans with registration and required Veterans Administration forms. The VIP/Veterans Services office is located on the lower level of the Garnett Library in Room 102.
