Academic Resources

Graduation is the goal, and these academic resources will help you stay on track while making the most of your experience at WSU.

Pursue Your Degree Program

Once you have your access code from your academic advisor, you’ll register for classes in Student eServices.

Follow these step-by-step instructions to select your classes, make the most of your time with your advisor, and plan a schedule that is best for you.

If you’re a PSEO student, you have a specific registration process for your classes.

Students who struggle in a class have options to consider. Start by taking advantage of Tutoring Services to help improve your grades.

If your situation does not improve, you could:

  • drop a class
  • withdraw from a class
  • change the grade method

It is important to understand the differences between these options, the deadlines for each, and their consequences—including how your financial aid might be affected.

Before making a decision, you should connect with your academic advisor or an advisor in the Warrior Success Center to make sure this choice is right for you.

If you have any questions, stop by the Warrior Hub or call 507.457.5682 to discuss your personal situation before you fully withdraw from WSU.

Keep track of your academic progress toward your degree with your Degree Audit in eServices. This report tool shows which courses you have left to meet requirements for graduation.

You can also check on your grades in Student eServices.

Or try calculating your GPA and completion rate mid-semester.

Want to change your major or minor? No worries—just use the online declaration/change of major form.

You will receive an email notification when the change has been processed, and your Degree Audit in Student eServices will change to reflect your new program(s).

Build Your Co-Curricular Transcript

Just like your academic transcript tracks the courses you’ve taken, your co-curricular transcript is an official record of the extra steps you’ve taken to build your skills.

You can send your co-curricular transcript along with your application materials to employers, graduate schools, scholarship committees, and more.
