How To Register For Classes


All students must be admitted to West Virginia University prior to registration. The only exceptions are for visiting undergraduate students who can take a class with a guest pass or graduate-level professional development students. If you are not admitted or are unsure of your admission status, please call 1-800-2Learn2 (253-2762).


Students can pre-register using the STAR on-line registration system prior to the first day of the semester of classes. Students are not officially registered until all tuition and fees are paid. For more information on paying your bills go here.


Students interested in Extended Learning courses with departmental approval should fill out the Course Registration Request form.
