Undergraduate Course Waivers
Undergraduate Course Waivers: Winter 2018 Course Selection Period: October 11 - November 2, 2017
The Winter Course Selection Period starts at 8 am on WebAdvisor on October 11, 2017 depending on your selection window. During the selection period, all 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, Ruth Lesins, is responsible for signing course waivers (for courses requiring instructor consent, prerequisite/restriction waivers, course overload, etc.), rather than FRAN course instructors. Her 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 email your request to email@example.com for consideration. If you wish to further discuss your situation, bring a completed course waiver to MINS 247 and meet with Ruth.
Additional spaces may be opened up throughout the course selection period. Check WebAdvisor regularly and register when spaces become available.
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.
