How to Register
Whether you’re a first-time user or a returning student, signing up for classes is easy. After you meet with your advisor to explore your options for the upcoming semester, you have two ways to search and register for classes. You can use our mobile app or sign up online in goPFW. Whichever way you choose to sign up for classes, be sure to take advantage of your early registration period to secure your schedule for the semester.
If this is your first time signing up for classes, you’ll need to make sure to activate your goPFW account. Follow the instructions for first-time users to set up your username and password. You’ll need to provide your last name, date of birth, and either your student ID number or the last four digits of your Social Security number.
With so many classes and programs to choose from, you’ll want to take advantage of all the resources and opportunities available to you for a smooth registration process. Set yourself up for a succesful semester with the following registration steps.
Meet with your advisor.
Getting guidance from your advisor is the best way to to create the schedule that you need. Your advisor can answer any questions you may have, and they can let you know if you are on track for graduation. Advising you is their job, so take advantage of their expertise. You can find your advisor’s contact information in goPFW.
