Eligibility to Register-Current or Returning Students
Students who are enrolled for the Fall 2014 semester and who are eligible to register were assigned a Registration Priority. The Registration Priority assignment is not an appointment. It is the specific date and time at which point the student will be able to access WESS for registration. Students can register anytime after this point. Students must obtain their personal Registration Priority assignment by logging on to WESS at wfs.montclair.edu. After logging on to WESS, select Registration Status (below the heading "Registration"), then select the appropriate term (semester). Students can identify their Registration Priority on WESS during the week of October 27, 2014. Registration Priority assignments will be between November 10 - 13, 2014.

Undergraduate students who are enrolled for the Fall 2014 semester were assigned a Registration Priority according to the number of credits earned. Credits for which students are enrolled during the Fall 2014 semester are not counted toward credits earned.

Graduate students who are enrolled for the Fall 2014 semester were assigned a Registration Priority according to the number of credits earned and within their classification status. Students who have matriculated into their given program will be assigned a higher priority than those with deferred matriculated, conditionally matriculated, and non-degree status. Credits for which students are enrolled during the Fall 2014 semester are not counted toward credits earned.

Undergraduate and Graduate students who were enrolled for either the Spring 2014 semester or Summer Sessions 2014 but are not enrolled for the Fall 2014 semester and did not graduate in either May 2014 or August 2014 should contact the Office of the Registrar at (973) 655-4376 or e-mail: registrar@mail.montclair.edu to determine eligibility to register.
