In October 2010, the WyCLASS website won a first place award for innovation in online student services from the Center for Transforming Student Services (CENTSS).
You can easily find classes from the statewide listing of distance courses using the WyCLASS search tool. The keyword search checks against course titles, listings, instructors and descriptions. Be sure to filter by the term you need. You can narrow your search by selecting a delivery method, department, and/or a specific college. To reset all filters, set to ALL.
Results of your search will be displayed across one or more pages, up to fifty classes at a time. Each class listed includes a link for more information and a link to add that class to a registration "shopping cart." Your cart contents will be displayed below the left-hand search panel. Once you have selected the courses you hope to register for, you will then "check out."
By selecting to "checkout" from the course browsing process, you will enter into the secure course registration request process. First, you will enter basic contact and personal information and be asked to specify information about your college goals. You must indicate that you understand this process does not guarantee registration into your selected courses. It merely provides a registration request to the college(s) hosting the course(s) you hope to take. Many factors will affect your enrollment into your desired course(s) and are at the discretion of the host college(s). Here's what you can expect to happen next:
If the host college is able to register you for a course, you will be given guidance regarding paying for your course, textbook needs, and other information needed for course participation.
These delivery modes do not require students to interact with their class on a specific day and time schedule. These courses may have weekly or daily participation expectations and very definate due dates, but when you access the class is entirely up to you.
These delivery modes follow a very strict class meeting schedule, very much like taking a traditional class at a college campus. You will have to interact with your course on a specific day and time. The course may be supported by online, asynchronous activities including discussion, quizzing/tests, and assignment submission.
