Classes and Scheduling

Below are the School of Information Sciences class schedules organized by term. Online (WEB) classes do not require any physical class meetings and most are asynchronous delivery (meaning no regularly-scheduled real-time sessions). Exceptions (such as required online meeting times) are noted in the class section information.

Browse the full WSU Schedule of Classes here.

Textbook information is available through the WSU bookstore.

Note: International Students on F1 Visas are restricted to ONE web/online class per semester.

The School has created a master schedule to help students better plan their schedules. The master schedule lists all the courses in the School's catalog and indicates which term(s) the courses are scheduled to be offered face-to-face in Detroit and/or online.

Waitlist

SIS will be participating in a pilot of the university's new waitlist system. Many of the courses that are regularly included in the school run waitlist will offer this option within the WSU registration system. After adding yourself to the list, if a spot opens in a closed class, the next student on the waitlist is sent an email to their WSU AccessID email. Students have 24 hours to register for the class, otherwise the open seat will be offered to the next student on the waitlist.
