Students may register and check their current class schedule through Buff Advisor by selecting Student Planning. Regulations governing course selection, pre-requisites, course load and admission requirements are published in the WTAMU catalog or can be obtained from your academic department.

NOTE:  Students who are enrolled will be expected to submit a withdrawal from the University if their plans change.  While deletions for nonpayment are done, if a student has financial aid or scholarships applied to their accounts, these are considered payment and intention to remain enrolled. Students will be responsible for their university tuition/fee/room/board charges unless they withdraw prior to the first class day.  The Withdrawal Form can be found at the Forms link on the right side of this page.
