Registration Overview

Wellesley College offers students online registration through Workday. Registration generally opens for students mid-semester for the upcoming semester. The semester class schedule is posted via the Course Browser 1-3 weeks in advance of registration. The Course Catalog is available online for annual course planning. 

Online registration initially becomes available to students by class year - seniors, juniors, sophomores, and then first-years. Davis Scholars are grouped with the class their units most closely match. Transfer and Exchange student registration varies depending on the time of year. Shortly after each group has had a day of initial registration, the system is reopened for all students for the remainder of the semester. 

For additional information review the Instructions for Online Registration available in MyWellesley on the Student Self-Service tab under Workday and watch the Academic Calendar for important registration dates.

Add/Drop Period

At the beginning of each semester students are permitted a two week period to add new courses and switch course sections. For an additional two weeks, students may continue to use the online self-service system to drop a course and/or change the grade mode to credit/no credit. Instructions on how to add and drop courses are available in MyWellesley under the Student Self-Service tab.
