Priority registration is available to students who may need to plan their classes around physical needs (e.g. accessibility of the location), students who need textbooks in alternative format, students who need oral or sign language interpreters, or students needing transcribing services. Priority registration allows eligible students to register for the next semester's courses on the first day priority registration is available to specifically identified students.
The Office of the Registrar is notified of students who are eligible for Priority Registration about 3 weeks in advance of registration. A Priority Registration reminder is sent by UDSS to each eligible student prior to registration.
To take advantage of this early registration opportunity, it is important to schedule an appointment with your academic advisor early during the advising period to review your course selections and obtain your PERC number. Obtaining your PERC number must be done before you can use WyoWeb to register.
Students who are concerned with classroom accessibility should review their schedule right after registration to ensure that classrooms are accessible. If a room is not accessible, or if you are unsure, please make an appointment as soon as possible to meet with your UDSS coordinator to explore the location's accessibility features and to arrange for relocation of classrooms, if necessary.
Students who need books in alternative format, sign language interpreting or transcribing services should share a copy of their schedule with their UDSS coordinator as soon as possible after registering. This will allow UDSS to secure alternative media or to schedule interpreters and transcribers well in advance of the beginning of the next semester's courses.
To determine if you qualify for this helpful service, contact your UDSS coordinator.
