College Catalog

Use the Warren Wilson College Catalog to look up major requirements, academic policies, and more! Students should reference the Catalog from the year during which they entered, unless they declare a Catalog from a subsequent year. Older Catalog years are available on the Catalog’s landing website, at the link above.


Register for courses via CampusWeb. You access CampusWeb with your student ID number and a PIN; if you have lost your PIN, bring your student ID card to the Registrar’s Office, and we will reset it for you. CampusWeb is also where you access your schedule, end of term grades, transcript, Work Program time cards, billing, financial aid, Service Learning hours, degree audit, and more. You can give your parents their own access to CampusWeb and select what you want them to see.

Add/Drop Period

The Add/Drop Period is the first four days of each term and semester — you may add and drop classes via CampusWeb. If a class is full, and you have the instructor’s permission to add it, you will need his/her signature on an Add Form, available at the Registrar’s Office. The form is due by 4:30 on Thursday of the first week of the term. Make sure to finalize your course schedule before the end of the Add/Drop Period.


If a course is full and you are trying to add it to your schedule, CampusWeb registration will give you the option to be placed on a waiting list. To add a waitlisted class to your schedule you will need the instructor’s signature on an Add Form, as indicated above.


Dropping a class beyond the Add/Drop period is called a withdrawal. Withdrawal Forms are available at the Registrar’s Office. If you withdraw from a course prior to the halfway point of the semester or term, your transcript will show a grade of W in the class and your GPA is not affected. Withdrawal after the halfway point results in a grade of WF on your transcript and factors into your GPA as a grade of F. Please note, there are possible financial and academic consequences for withdrawal from a course; please discuss withdrawal plans with your advisor or/and the Registrar’s Office.
