New Students - UPDATE: ENVS 1030: Full Working Sections

UPDATE: New spaces have been opened in ENVS 1030, including a new section.

We are aware that ENVS 1030 sections have limited to no working spots for the EM students. In order to evenly distribute students among labs, we will not open new spots until more of the open spots fill. This ensures that the current spots can be filled by students in another program who can fit in those lab sections. In the meantime, please select your other courses in anticipation that there will be new spaces available soon.

New Students - UPDATE: ENVS 1030: More Spots to Open Next Week

UPDATE: More spaces have been requested and should be open later today.

We are aware that ENVS 1030 sections have limited to no working spots for the EM students. In order to evenly distribute students among labs, we will not open new spots until early next week so the current spots can be filled by students in another program who can fit in those lab sections. In the meantime, please select your other courses in anticipation that there will be new spaces available next week.

New Students – Full Courses and Tips for When to Check Availability

I just wanted to give a bit of insight into how first year courses are monitored by departments and how it conflicts with the time of day when many of you are selecting courses. Most of us leave work before 5:00pm; just when course selection is really getting started by students as you get home from school or work.

New Students - Finding MGMT 2150 for EM Students

If you are an Environmental Management student having trouble finding MGMT 2150, it is likely because it is a 2000 level course and the instructions in the New Student Registration Guide note that you should look for 1000 level courses. To find it, you can leave the field for "Course Levels" on WebAdvisor blank. If you still can't find it, please call the office at 519-824-4120 ext. 54800.
