Welcome to the University of West Georgia! We are delighted that you will be joining us!

All new students are required to attend Orientation.  At orientation, you will have the opportunity to meet with your perspective college, be advised for classes, learn about your transcript evaluation, find out important fee payment process information and many other vital pieces of information important to your success at UWG.  Log into your portal to sign up and pay for orientation: https://myuwg.westga.edu/  For more information, visit Orientation's website www.westga.edu/orientation .

Transfer Students

As a new transfer student, you will need to attend Orientation prior to registering for courses. You will also need to meet with a professional advisor who will help you make informed decisions about your class schedule. You will have an opportunity to register or change your courses afterwards during open registration and drop/add.

New Readmits and Transients

You can come to the Enrollment Services Center between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm or you can register online using Banweb during open registration and drop/add. However, course pre-requisites or special approvals may prevent registration on Banweb.


An Auditor is a student who enrolls as an observer or listener only.

In addition to submitting a completed admission application and $40 application fee (if mailing a paper application, please do not mail cash payment.), an auditor must also show proof of graduation from an accredited high school or the possession of a GED certificate. Credit is not awarded for audit and no grade other than V (symbol for audit) is given. Auditors pay the regular fees for enrollment. Students are prohibited from receiving credit for courses for which they were registered as auditors unless the course is repeated for credit.

Since auditors are "visiting" students and not degree seeking UWG students, auditors are not eligible for financial assistance from UWG.

Note: Auditors are eligible to register three days prior to the start of the semester. Visit here for the registration date of the upcoming term. Auditors are eligible to attend in consecutive terms; however, they must reapply and submit an additional $40 application fee (If mailing a paper application, please do not mail cash payment.) if they do not stay continuously enrolled (the requirement to apply and pay the application fee each term is waived for students who stay continuously enrolled). Auditors do not attend new student orientation.

Online eCore Students

Students should read carefully the information found at http://ecore.westga.edu to be certain eCore learning is right for them and to understand the policies related to eCore courses. Students must complete the eCore Online Orientation before registering for an eCore course. 

Again, we welcome you to the University of West Georgia and hope that you will have a successful career with us here!
