Student Registration

New and current Winona State University-Rochester students can begin registering for classes with the assistance of an academic advisor.

An academic advisor will provide an overview of WSU-Rochester and explain our program curriculum and requirements. In addition, the advisor is available to discuss academic plans and career goals. You will work with your advisor to select and register for appropriate courses at WSU-R.

We recommend you register for classes as soon as you are allowed. Register early to set your own schedule.

Steps for New Students

Zoom Account

New students will need to set up a free student Zoom account through the Minnesota State system before meeting with an advisor on Zoom.

Email Account

New students will need to set up their WSU student email. This is the official WSU communication system and the only email that we will use to contact you.

You will log into your student email account using your StarID, which is on your admission email and is a combination of 2 letters, 4 numbers, 2 letters (ex: aa1234bb).
