It’s time for a new semester and fresh learning opportunities. What comes first? Register for your classes.

To register for classes, you need to have been admitted to Wingate University. To apply for admission, please contact the Office of Admissions at 704-233-8200 or 800-755-5550.


Completing the re-admission process must take place before class registration. If you have not been a Wingate University student for one semester or more, you must apply for re-admission. If you withdrew in the middle of the previous semester, this rule applies to you too. If you missed more than one semester, you must follow the degree requirements outlined in the current Academic Catalog for the semester of re-admission.

Preregistration and Final Registration

Newly admitted students and students who didn’t preregister may register on predesignated dates.

Academic Advising and Registration

Please follow academic advising and registration procedures that apply to your student status:

  • Full-time returning students: Make an appointment with your academic advisor for advising and registration through WinLINK.
  • Freshmen and re-admitted students: The Director of Academic Advising at Ethel K. Smith Library will assist you.
  • Seniors: Complete a commencement application at registration.
  • Transfer students: Refer to the transfer student checklist for information about registration.
  • Visiting or part-time students: If you’re taking up to six hours, complete an admission application and check the visiting student or part-time student status box.

Auditing Classes

If you are registering for a class and plan to audit it, obtain permission and complete a course audit form.

Withdrawing from a Class

If midterm grades are in, and if you aren’t performing well in a class, you may consider withdrawing from it. We encourage you to speak to both the class instructor and your advisor before withdrawing. If you are a graduating senior, please contact the Registrar’s Office to ensure that you will still be on track to graduate if you choose withdraw from a class.  After making the decision to withdraw, please complete the online Course Withdrawal Form before the last day to withdraw.  Withdrawing from a course after the deadline will result in a failing grade.

Withdrawing from All Your Classes

If you are considering leaving Wingate, we encourage you to reach out to your academic advisor, the Academic Resource Center, your Resident Advisor or Director, a University counselor, or the Registrar’s Office.  You and your future are important to us. Give us a chance to find out what’s going on. Even if you don’t want to talk, it’s important for you to know where you stand financially and academically.

If there’s a chance you might want to return, please contact the Office of Student Success about a temporary leave of absence.

If you’ve made the decision to leave, please complete the University Withdrawal from All Classes Form.  To receive all “W’s”, this form must be completed by the last day to withdraw.  Otherwise, you will receive all failing marks on your transcript.  If you have an extenuating circumstance, please contact the Academic Resource Center.
