Step 1:  Before Advising

It is best to have a schedule planned before you reach out to an advisor. 
If you are unable to determine what is needed, your advisor can help you. It is still highly recommended to be familiar with your MyDegree requirements and progress.
Students are responsible for understanding these requirements and when they will bee completed in order to apply for graduation within the deadlines. 

View MyDegree (this is accessed through the MyState portal) to determine which courses you need to complete to satisfy degree requirements. 
  • Use this information in combination with the class schedule to develop a general outline of your schedule.
    • Take note of the class CRN numbers.  You will use these later for registration.

Step 2:  Contacting your Advisor

You should contact your academic advisor to schedule an advising session as soon as possible. 
  • Your advisor’s name should be listed in your MyState.
  • In order to access where this is listed.
  • First, go to your MyState >> Student & Financial Aid >> Student Records >> View Student Information.
  • Your advisor’s name will be listed here. Advisor contact information can be found on the WVSU website. A link to all department webpages is above on the right
  • If no advisor is listed, or was not updated after a change of major, please contact the Academic Advising Center, or by email at and they will assign an advisor for you.

Step 3: Advising

  • Your advisor will discuss your schedule or help you create a schedule to help ensure you are on track for graduation.
    • *It is the students responsibility to adhere to requirements for graduation as outlined in the Academic Catalog.
  • The academic advisor will give you a registration term PIN after they have completed your advising. 
    • Faculty will get the PIN from their academic or dean’s clerical staff.
    • Freshman and Sophomore pins expire 24 hours from the student activating it in MyState. 


Now that you have been advised and have your PIN you can now register online.
