Area residents interested in taking classes during the 2022 spring semester at Missouri State University-West Plains (MSU-WP) can now browse through a list of courses online.
The complete 2022 spring semester course listing can be found at WP.MissouriState.edu/Schedule. The schedule includes classes available at the Missouri State-West Plains campus, in Mountain Grove and online, officials said.
More than 250 classes are on the schedule for the spring semester.
Although university officials plan on returning to more normal operations in the spring, they said they will continue to address COVID-19 issues as they arise.
“We will continue to monitor the number of COVID cases in the community,” Interim Dean of Academic Affairs Dr. Michael Orf said. “We will continue to consult closely with our local health officials and will follow their guidance as we move forward with our plans for spring. We also will have a back-up plan in place if the situation changes.”
Early registration, ASK Week details
Current, readmitted and transfer students can register for spring semester classes during an early registration period beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, Nov. 1. The period continues through 11:59 p.m. Friday, Nov. 12.
Students can prepare for early registration by consulting with their adviser during Advisement for Success Kickoff (ASK) Week Oct. 25-29.
Advisers will set aside additional advising time during this period to consult with students at times that are convenient for the students, officials said. Students can make an appointment to talk with their advisers either by phone or via email or by making an office visit.
Advisers also may offer a video conferencing option via Zoom for students. Contact your adviser for more details.
During the consultation, students can discuss their schedule and have their alternate PIN (personal identification number) released. The alternate PIN will allow students to register online through the university’s Grizzly Den web portal.
Once a student has spoken with an adviser and the alternate PIN has been released, the student may register for courses on the Grizzly Den website 24 hours a day, seven days a week during the early registration period.
Students also may receive registration assistance by calling 417-255-7979 or emailing WPRR@MissouriState.edu.
Officials remind that students are permitted to register during early registration according to a schedule based on the number of credit hours completed.
The early registration schedule for the 2022 spring semester can be viewed at WP.MissouriState.edu/EarlyRegistration.
Students are encouraged to register during appointed times, but they also may register after that time, officials said.
Assistance for veterans
Officials with the Veterans Services office will be available via phone or email during these same advisement and registration times to assist veterans and their dependents with registration and required Veterans Administration forms, according to Mark White, coordinator of the Veterans Incentive Program (VIP) at Missouri State-West Plains.
