SWOSU notes

Woodward, Okla. — Spring enrollment

Enrollment is underway for students who want to take classes during the 2013 spring semester on the Weatherford and Sayre campuses of Southwestern Oklahoma State University.

The 2013 spring semester begins January 9 at SWOSU.

Daniel Archer, registrar on the Weatherford campus, said the university does have online enrollment available through the SWOSU Web site (www.swosu.edu), so enrollment can be completed anytime during the holidays. In order to use the online enrollment system, a student must already be fully admitted to the university and have no unresolved issues related to their enrollment.
