Course Registration for Fall/Winter 2017

Course Registration for Fall/Winter 2017

Are you ready for September?  It’s time to start thinking about the 2017-2018 Fall/Winter term.  The following information outlines the steps for you to take as you prepare for next year.

 

Step 1 - View your 2016-2017 Fall/Winter Grade Report (Student Center > Academics > My Academics > View My Grades > Grade Report tab).  Grade Reports will be generated throughout the summer as progression decisions are received from the faculties.

 

Step 2 – Review your program and module (Student Center > Academics > My Academics > My Program) and review your course requirements (available through the Academic Calendar)

 

Step 3 – Research and plan for the courses you are interested in taking next year - see the Academic Calendar and our new timetabling tool Draft My Schedule to help you plan a conflict-free timetable.

 

Be aware that it is your responsibility to choose courses ensuring that you meet all pre-requisite, co-requisite, and anti-requisite requirements (definitions of these terms are available through the Academic Calendar).

 

The Academic Calendar provides course information such as course names, numbers, descriptions and the necessary pre-requisites/anti-requisites/co-requisites.  Note: not all courses are offered every year.

 

Please be aware that many courses have restrictions on registration.

 

Step 4 – Make note of the following enrollment start dates:

 

  • 4th year students: Course registration starts June 20th to 23rd

 

  • 3rd year students: Course registration starts July 3rd to July 6th

 

  • 2nd year students: Course registration starts July 11th to July 14th

 

  • 1st year students: Course registration starts June 17th

 

  • Priorities Lift: July 21st at 9:30 a.m. EST (Note: registration closes on July 20th at 11:59 p.m. EST to prepare for Priorities lifting.)  When priorities lift, you must still meet all pre-requisite, co-requisite, and anti-requisite requirements.

 

  • Web Registration Closes: August 21st at 11:59 p.m. EST

 

  • Web Registration Reopens for students who previously registered for courses and have paid their first installment of tuition (see Step 9) or applied for OSAP by June 30, 2016 (see Step 8): August 22nd at 9:30 a.m. EST

 

Step 5 – 2 to 3 days before the enrollment start dates for your year of study (see Step 4), check your Western @uwo.ca e-mail account for information on obtaining your specific enrollment start time.

 

  • Enrollment Start Time – the first time the online course registration system becomes available to you.  Your enrollment time will continue from the time specified until July 20th at 11:59 p.m. EST (see Step 4 for additional course registration dates).

 

Step 6 – Get your enrollment start time by logging into your Student Center and selecting “Details” under Enrollment Dates on the right side of the page.  Please note that you will not be able to enroll in classes prior to your enrollment start time.  However, once your enrollment start time has arrived, course registration will remain available for you until being briefly terminated on July 20th at 11:59 p.m. EST.

 

Step 7 – Enroll in your courses at your enrollment start time or any time afterwards.  Check out our Step by Step Guide to Registration for detailed instructions on how to add, drop, and swap courses via the Student Center.

 

Step 8 – If applying for OSAP, complete your application and submit all supporting documentation by June 30th to ensure your application is processed by September.

 

Step 9 – Pay your tuition fees through online banking by August 15, 2017.  Affiliate students, different tuition due dates may apply.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q - What if the course says “not full” on the web version of the timetable but comes up as “full” when I try to register?

 

A - This happens when you do not meet the priority or restriction placed on the course.  You may not get special permission to avoid these situations.

 

Q - Do I have to call the Helpline for help to enroll in every course I want to take if I have transfer credits?

 

A – No, you will not have to call the Helpline unless one of your transfer credits is considered to be the pre-requisite or co-requisite for the course you would like to enroll in.

 

Q – What is a requisite?

 

A – There are different types of requisites:

  • Pre-requisites – a course that must be successfully completed prior to registration for credit in the desired course;
  • Co-requisites – a course that must be taken concurrently with (or prior to registration in) the desired course; and
  • Anti-requisites – a course that overlaps sufficiently in course content that both cannot be taken for credit.

 

Q – What is the difference between a priority and a restriction?

 

A – A Priority is when students in specific degrees/modules have the first opportunity to register.  Priorities lift on July 21st at 9:30 a.m. EST.  A restriction is when only students in specific degrees/modules may register in that course.  Note: Special permission is not normally granted to students who do not meet restrictions or priorities since these are in place so program students can get courses to be able to graduate.

 

Q – How will I know when a special permission is added to my record?

 

A – You can see your special permission by logging into Student Center and looking under “Academics”.

 

Q – I want to swap a lab or tutorial.  Can I do so without dropping and re-adding the lecture section?

 

A – Yes, review our Swapping a Lab or Tutorial information.

 

Q- How do I move my schedule from Draft My Schedule to Student Center to register?

 

A – Follow our step by step instructions to move the courses to your Course Enrollment Worksheet.

 

2 to 3 days before the course enrollment dates for your year of study, check your Western @uwo.ca e-mail account for information on obtaining your specific enrollment appointment start time.
