​School of Education Weekly Newsletter

Week of April 17, 2017

Welcome to week 12 of the semester. Registration for the fall term begins today and runs through early May. Your registration time can be viewed in accesSPoint.

Registration Helpful Hints

  • Help Videos are available in AccesSPoint. They are short, but extremely helpful to your successful registration. 

  • Schedule Builder is a helpful tool to create schedules; however it does have limitations. Please be aware that Schedule Builder does not know: 

    • Math and Math Education courses must be the same section number. 

    • Certain sections of some courses are major specific (i.e. NRES 150, 370, EDUC 309 and 310). You must click the section number in the timetable to see section notes.

  • Your Shopping Cart: 

    • Students can add their fall courses to their shopping cart now under the "My Classes" tile in AccesSPoint. 

    • For any ECE, EDUC, HLED, PEX and PHED course that required pre-registration, you must make sure your shopping cart has the appropriate course and section you were assigned. 

  • Validate your shopping cart now 

    • Once your shopping cart is full, click to validate your courses. 

    • This ensures that you meet all of the pre-reqs. and other registration requirements for these courses. 

    • We believe that there are validating errors that need to be addressed. If you believe you meet all registration requirements, and you receive a validation error, please email education.office@uwsp.edu with your name, student id, a screenshot of the error and why you think it is incorrect. 

Pre-Registration Permissions Granted

  • Permission for ECE, EDUC, HLED, PHED and PEX courses have been entered. Thank you for your patience as we worked through granting permissions in accesSPoint for the first time. 

  • You can view your permissions in AccesSPoint under the "My Classes" tile. On the left navigation, you should see "Class Permissions."  This shows you all of your permissions for summer and fall classes. 

  • Please let us know immediately if you no longer need a course for which you have received permission. We will have waiting lists for almost all courses and these extra seats will help us help other students.  

Registration Deposits

  • UWSP requires a $100 registration deposit in order to register (for each term).

  • Registration Deposits are currently paid in MyPoint under "Financials." 

  • PLEASE pay your registration deposit before 4 p.m. on Friday, April 28, regardless of your registration time. 

  • The payment system will be switching to AccesSPoint after April 28 (current plan) and the system may be unavailable for a few days.  


  • We recommend checking for any registration holds in accesSPoint  under your "Holds" tile immediately. 

  • Students will not be able to register without clearing all holds.  

Have a great week!
