(West Plains) – Area residents interested in taking classes during the 2012 summer session and/or fall semester at Missouri State University-West Plains now can browse through the list of courses available on the campus’ website.
The complete 2012 summer session/fall semester schedule course listing can be found at http://grizzlyden.missouristate.edu/schedule. Paper copies of the schedule will be available mid-April through the university, but area residents can view an electronic copy of the printed schedule online.
Over 90 classes will be offered during the summer session and approximately 370 will be offered during the fall semester. Courses include those available at the Missouri State-West Plains campus in Mountain Grove, as well as online.
Current, readmitted and transfer students have the opportunity to register for classes during an early registration period April 16-20. They can prepare for early registration by visiting with their adviser during Advisement for Success Kickoff (ASK) Week April 9-13. Advisers have set aside additional advising time during this week to meet with students at a time that’s convenient for the students.
Students can make an appointment to visit with their adviser either by phone, via e-mail or in person at the adviser’s office to discuss their schedule and have their alternate PIN (personal identification number) released, which will allow them to register online through Missouri State-West Plains’ Grizzly Den web portal.
Once students have spoken with their adviser and their alternate PIN has been released, they may register for courses on the Grizzly Den website, 24 hours a day, seven days a week during the early registration period, or they can register in person at the registration and records office in Cass Hall, 515 Cass Ave., from 8 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday.
Officials remind that students are permitted to register during early registration according to a schedule based on the number of credit hours completed. The early registration schedule for the 2012 summer session and fall semester can be viewed online. Students are encouraged to register during appointed times, but they also may register after that time period.

Regular registration for the 2012 fall semester also begins at 12:01 AM April 23 and continues through August 19. Fall semester classes begin August 20.
