Student FAQ’S

How do I request an official transcript?
Go to the Wesleyan homepage and under the Quicklinks drop down menu you will see a link to Request a Transcript.  Follow the instructions carefully, especially if you are a first-time user.


How do I obtain an unofficial transcript?
We do not issue unofficial transcripts.  Current students may print unofficial transcripts from their WebAdvisor accounts.


How do I obtain my grades each semester?
Log-in to your WebAdvisor account and under the Academic Profile section select the My Grades option and specify the term.  If you would like a paper copy grade report, please stop by the Academic Services office and fill out a request form.


How many credit hours is considered full-time?
Full-time enrollment is 12 – 17 credits hours for undergraduate students.  For graduate students, 6 credit hours is considered full-time. 


What if I want to take more than 17 credit hours?
Students who wish to enroll in more than 17 credit hours in a semester must have sophomore standing, a minimum grade point average of 2.75, and the approval of the Registrar.


How do I preregister for classes?
Currently enrolled students are required to preregister via WebAdvisor during the designated time period.  You must meet with your advisor and submit your courses.  Your advisor must approve your schedule and complete the preregistration process before it is finalized.  By preregistering for classes, this will hold a spot for you in those classes until you confirm your schedule at registration.  ALL students are required to register the day before classes begin each term.


How can I change my schedule once the semester begins?
After the semester begins, the first five days of the semester is referred to as the add/drop period.  Course changes made during this time do not appear on the college transcript.  After add/drop, you may withdraw from a class and the grade will appear as a W on the transcript.  Please refer to the academic calendar to determine the official last day to withdraw from a full semester course for the term. Forms are available in the Academic Services Office.
