Preregistration is an online web application designed to begin the advising and registration process at WCU. By answering a series of questions in Preregistration, you will be matched with an academic advisor who will use your responses to create your first semester course schedule. Through Preregistration, you can declare your major, indicate course preferences, and share other information with your academic advisor. Your advisor will then be able to prepare a tentative course schedule for you before you even arrive at Orientation.

When can I complete preregistration?

When Preregistration goes live, you will receive a brochure from the Office of New Student Orientation, which will contain your login information. Preregistration becomes active for summer and fall students at the beginning of April. Students admitted for the spring can access Preregistration in November.

how do i login to Preregistration?

Students will log into their MyWCU account to access Preregistration. If you are having problems logging in, please call 828-227-7487.

What if I've already taken some of the courses listed in Preregistration?

Preregistration will ask you about your previous college credit and AP credit. Be sure to have your official transcripts for college coursework (from college you earned credit from) and AP scores (College Board) sent to our Admissions Office as soon as possible. As long as your advisor knows what to expect, he or she will not register you for courses that you've already completed.

when will i receive my course schedule?

Your advisor will create your preliminary course schedule if you have:

  • Made your tuition deposit
  • Completed Preregistration
  • Submitted proof of immunization
  • Registered for Orientation

You will receive your preliminary course schedule during your orientation session.

Whom should i contact if i have questions or need assistance?

The Advising Center will be happy to help! Feel free to call 828-227-7753 or send an email to
