    Before the quarter starts

    Buy textbooks

    Buy your textbooks in the University Bookstore, Pence Union Building (PUB) 152 or through the University Bookstore website. Students with classes at the EWU Riverpoint (Spokane) campus will need to buy those textbooks at the Spokane Center Bookstore website. Print off your class schedule and find your books by the course code, course number and section number (example: ENGL 101-05). To find your class schedule in MyEWU, go to:  

    1. Students

    Early in the quarter

    Meet with your advisor

    Remember to make your appointment early in the quarter to meet with your academic or departmental advisor.  Connect with your Academic Advisor (and find their contact information). Priority Registration for the next term begins the 7th week of the current term. Transfer students with less than 45 earned credits must meet with their academic or departmental advisor prior to registering each quarter. Advisors' calendars typically fill quickly, so make sure to schedule your advising appointment early each quarter!   

    Take the Math Placement Test

    Take the Math Placement Test as soon as possible if you did not take (and pass) a mathematics course at your previous college or university. Please note that most math and science classes require placement testing or previous college coursework in math. Check the Math Placement Test website for test dates, practice test and instructions.
