Registration and Records

General Information

This form is used by a student who is unable to join a Waitlist during registration on myCWI.  This form will allow CWI to override a student onto a Waitlist for a full course.

NOTE:  You must be admitted as a degree-seeking student to use this form.

This form is used to withdraw from a partial schedule of courses or a full schedule of courses.  No course may be withdrawn from after 75% of the course or 12 weeks of the term have elapsed, whichever is earlier.  This form must be submitted in person, through the student’s CWI email, by fax or mail with a copy of current photo ID. 

This replaces the “Drop” portion of the Add/Drop form.


Completion of the 36 credit general education program qualifies you for an Academic Certificate. This certificate notation will be posted on your CWI transcript, and can be awarded prior to completing your AA or AS degree. By accomplishing this milestone, you can transfer from CWI to any of the public colleges or universities within Idaho, and you will not be required to complete additional general education requirements at the receiving institution.

This form is to be used to change your graduation date to a future semester or to apply for graduation past the deadline. Requests will be reviewed by the Registrar's office and you will be notified if your petition is approved or denied.

Appeals & Special Circumstances

At the College of Western Idaho (CWI), we strive to provide a positive experience for our students and guests of the College.  We do realize, however, that issues do arise on occasions that need to be brought to our attention.  Many student issues can be resolved by contacting the appropriate department.  Advisors and One Stop Mangers can listen to your concerns, help you understand steps necessary to review your concerns as well as direct you to the appropriate staff and forms.  Below you will find guidance for how to properly navigate the College’s petition, appeal, grievance, and complaint processes. 


This form is used to change your mailing address. Completing this form does not change your residency status.
If this address change affects your residency status (such as moving to a different county or state), you must also complete these two forms:

1) Certificate of Residency/Affidavit

2) Residency Redetermination Form

You must provide Photo ID when submitting this form.

EFFECTIVE Fall 2015 – Out-of-District Students must submit Certificate of Residency Affidavit to their county of residence. Idaho code 33-2110 requires that the county you resided in for at least 12 consecutive months prior to being admitted pay part of your tuition (except for Jerome, Twin Falls, Kootenai, Ada and Canyon counties). It is your responsibility to prove legal residency by completing the form below. Some counties may require additional information or have you complete additional forms. If the county cannot certify your legal residency, you are responsible for paying the county portion of your tuition.
