Guide for students to search, register, and drop classes.

Registration Using PRISM

Registration will be done through PRISM for any UW-Colleges competency set up plan to take during the designated self-enrollment timeframe. PRISM will allow you to search, add, and drop competency sets. For additional help related to PRISM and other features available within PRISM, visit the Student Help page.

As you use PRISM, you will want to be aware that competency sets are referred to as "courses" and subscription periods are referred to as "terms". Be sure to log out of PRISM when you are done working in it.
