Undergraduate Course Waivers
Winter 2017 Course Selection Period: December 12 - January 13
The next Winter 2017 Add/Drop Period will be December 12 - January 13. During this period, all new and in-course undergraduate students may register for courses. Further information can be found on the Registrar's website.
In the Department of Family Relations & Applied Nutrition, the Academic Administrative Assistant, is responsible for signing course waivers (for courses requiring instructor consent, prerequisite/restriction waivers, course overload, etc.), rather than FRAN course instructors. The office is located in MINS 247 and the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can download the Course Waiver Request form, or collect a form from outside MINS 247.
The decision to sign a course waiver is related to each individual student's program and academic background as well as the course enrolment, capacity and timing. Please bring a completed course waiver to MINS 247 and discuss your individual case with Sharon. If she is not available, please leave the form in the 'Drop Off' box outside MINS 247 along with a brief note explaining why you need the course. Please include your student number and e-mail address.
You do not need to wait for your course selection window to have a course waiver signed.
Additional spaces may be opened up throughout the course selection period. Check WebAdvisor regularly and register when spaces become available.
We will generally respond to e-mail queries and dropped off waiver forms within 24 hours.
If you are a BASc major (including Co-op and transfer students) or FCS minor, every effort will be made to accommodate your required courses in your unique schedule.
If you are not in the BASc major or FCS minor, please contact email@example.com and outline why you wish to take the course in question. Keep your eye on WebAdvisor, as spaces may open up throughout the course selection period.
