Registration Information

Registration Policy

Due to high demand, SOC 300- level courses are restricted to declared Sociology majors for the first 6 class days of registration-Phase I. 

Restrictions will be removed by 9 a.m. on the 7th day of registration-Phase I. If space is available, non-majors will be able to register at that time for 300- and 400-level courses as long as they have fulfilled any prerequisites. Western’s automated waitlist system will be utilized for all courses.

Note: Summer classes are not restricted for majors only.

Registration restrictions for Fall 2016 registration will lift mid-morning Wednesday, May 18th.


Western's automated waitlist system will be utilized for all courses. The Sociology Department reserves the right to manage its wait lists to give priority to declared Sociology majors who have applied to graduate in upcoming quarters and must take certain courses to satisfy graduation requirements.
