Effective this month, the Office of the University Registrar is introducing two new processes to make for a better registration experience for students. First, the Term PIN process used in the past will be changed. This PIN was required for all undergraduates who wanted to register for classes. It was typically provided to a student by their advisor. Now, advisors or their designees will delete the PIN rather than give it to students to use. This alleviates the issue of students losing or forgetting their PIN and finding themselves locked out of registration. The second new process revolves around the issuance of permits for closed classes or over-riding a missing pre-requisite, etc. In the past, this has required a signed form be delivered by the student to the Office of the University Registrar for processing. Under our new procedure, faculty, designated advisors and administrative department staff can issue an electronic permit to a student. This allows the student to register online through MIX rather than delivering a form. These changes should make for a faster and more effective registration experience for all WVU students. If you have any questions about the new processes, please contact the Office of the University Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
