Information About Enrolling in Classes

Spring 2016 Course Schedule 

While your advisor is always willing to assist you, enrolling in the appropriate classes is ultimately your responsibility. For long-term planning purposes, refer to the course rotation table, but be sure to understand that this schedule is contingent upon funding and enrollment. Course listings in Buff Advisor will always supersede anything listed in the course rotation table.
If the need to contact your advisor exists, contact your assigned advisor. Dr. Nix may be contacted at snix@wtamu.edu and Dr. Bigham may be contacted at gbigham@wtamu.edu. You will register for classes through Buff Advisor once you have been green lighted by your advisor. For classes that require special enrollment permissions, you will have to be blue carded into the classes by your advisor. (See the most current academic catalog accessible at http://www.wtamu.edu/academics/catalog.aspx for courses requiring special enrollment permissions).
Recommendations and advice regarding enrollment:
  1. The Educational Leadership advisers encourage all beginning M.Ed. candidates to complete the EDPD core courses (6303 and 6304) as early in your program as possible as these courses are outside of the EDLD program and your advisers have no control over when and how often they are offered. Some EDLD courses should be taken early in your program, whereas others logically fit at the end of your program. Refer to the Suggested Course Sequence document for guidance on sequencing your course work as you structure your program.
  2. While the choice is ultimately yours to make, the Educational Leadership advisors caution against taking more than 6 hours per semester, especially if you are working full time.
  3. If you are a recipient of financial aid, you must maintain a minimum course load of 6 hours per long semester and/or 3 hours per summer semester.
