How the Enrollment Process Works

Online enrollment is available to students on assigned enrollment dates through the Self Service portal of GoSWOSU.  While your assigned faculty advisor is here to assist with enrollment, YOU – the student – are ultimately responsible for ensuring that your degree requirements are completed fully and in the correct order (i.e. prerequisites taken first).  When seeking academic advisement (once or multiple times), please do the following:

Schedule Faculty Advisor Appointment

Because their time and yours is valuable, please don’t simply show up unannounced.  They may not be able to immediately give you the undivided attention and assistance you need.

You can contact your Faculty Advisor by phone, email, or sign-up sheet on their office door.

Your Faculty Advisor is listed in Self Service; use the SWOSU Directory to find their Office, Email, and Phone information.

Go prepared

Review your transcript(s) + degree requirements (refer to the catalog for the year you started at SWOSU).

Know what courses you’ve completed and what you need next.

Have your chosen classes written out for reference or already planned out in Self Service.

Your Transcript can be viewed/printed through GoSWOSU > Self Service > Unofficial Transcript section

Degree Information can be found in the Catalog at Bulldog > Course Information Section > Degree Plans

Past Undergraduate Catalogs can be found on the SWOSU Digital Commons

SWOSU Class Schedules can be found at Bulldog > Quick Links Section > Class Schedules

An official Degree Check Request can be made at Bulldog > Quick Links Section > Degree Check Request

Regarding HOLDS

You can PLAN your schedule if you have holds placed on your account. However, holds must be removed before you can enroll.  If you have any hold(s) on your account, you’ll need to contact the individual office for hold removal prior to being able to finalize any registration/enrollment in the Self Service.

You are NOT fully enrolled in Self Service until each course has this notation, “REGISTERED, BUT NOT YET STARTED.”

If you or your advisor don’t hit the “Register Now” button after the courses are planned, you will not actually be enrolled in any of the listed classes.

The Canvas side of coursework will not be active until the beginning of each respective semester.
