Advising Holds

All undergraduate students have an advising hold on their accounts.  Students must reach out to their academic advisor to be advised ahead of registration.  Students can review their advising hold, and any other hold, on their Student Profile via https://my.pennwest.edu/

 Other Holds

If a student has any other hold, (i.e.: financial, judicial, bookstore, etc.) the student should reach out to the office that placed the hold at their home campus for additional information.   

Schedule Searching

 There have been a number of changes to the method that students will use to locate courses in the class schedule.  The schedule can be accessed through https://my.pennwest.edu/.  Click on Student Self-Service, Student Profile, Registration and then “Browse Class Schedule” to begin. 

All searches should begin with selecting your home campus.  For online courses only, select the Online campus.

Subject prefixes for all courses have a leading A – California, C – Clarion or E – Edinboro to help students identify the location.  Additionally, each subject has a trailing – CAL, CLA or EDI to ensure that students are selecting the appropriate version of the subject. 

Section numbers appearing after the course number also represent the location of the course.   

Students who are wishing to register for a course at another campus may require a permit override from the department to be able to register for the course.  Some courses have space restrictions based on campuses.  Permit overrides for restricted courses may be requested to the department offering the course. 

Degree Works Audit

Students should continue to use their Degree Works Audit found in myEdinboro at https://my.edinboro.edu/

Until the migrated version of Degree Works is available after the spring term.

*Priority registration

Not all groups that received priority registration in the past will continue to have priority registration in Penn West.
