To-Do List

Prior to the Fall 2020 registration period, students are reminded to check each item on the To-Do List below. Each task represents an important step in preparation to register for next semester. The Registrar’s Office sends an email to all students reminding them of their responsibilities in the week prior to the registration period.

Review the Registration Instructions

The Registrar’s Office encourages students to review this page in its entirety before each registration period. There are many important dates and deadlines to which students must adhere throughout the registration process, including the dates when students must meet with their advisor and when they may begin to register.

Check the Academic Calendar

Review the Academic Calendar page to verify the start and end dates for the next semester, as well as other important dates related to the current semester. 

Check your Washington College Email Account

All students will receive an automated registration priority email on the Monday of their advising week. This email will communicate the exact time on Friday when each student may begin to register on Student Planning. Additionally, it is important that each student check his or her WC email regularly since the Registrar’s Office sends all official messages related to class cancellations or waitlist registrations to this address.

Confirm that you have no holds or restrictions

Only students with no account holds or restrictions may register during their priority weekend. Students may confirm whether they have any holds by clicking on the “Plan & Schedule” link from the Student Planning drop down menu.  If you have a hold on your record, there will be a red alert at the top right of your screen. 

Check your Degree Completion Audit

Once logged into Student Planning, students can view their progress toward their degree by clicking on the “View My Progress” link.  Students are encouraged to make note of their listed major(s) and/or minor(s), and especially encouraged to take a look at the progress toward satisfying distribution and other graduation requirements.  Guides and more information on Student Planning can be found on the Student Planning Webpage.  If any of this information seems incorrect, please email the Registrar at

Still undeclared?

The Registrar’s Office will accept major/minor declaration forms until the week before your advising period. Students must submit their completed form by this deadline to receive an updated advisor assignment before their advising period begins. Students who miss this deadline must meet with their current academic advisor; the Registrar’s Office will process the completed form beginning in April.
