Changes to S18 and F18 Course Selection

Course selection is changing, effective immediately.

Summer course selection will begin March 5th.

Fall course selection will no longer occur in March and will begin some time in June.

Please be sure to read the information sent by the Registrar’s Office or review the website here: https://www.uoguelph.ca/registrar/courseselectionwindow

If you’d like to meet with Melinda before you leave campus, please take advantage of the extended drop in hour schedule (running March 1st to April 20th):

Applying to Graduate

For those of you who are going to complete your courses in April, you need to apply to graduate by February 16th, 2018 to avoid a late penalty. You would have already received an email from the Registrar’s Office with instructions if you will complete 20.00 credits this semester. Please refer to the information on the graduation webpage for more information about the process (under "Current Students", select "Graduation" on the right hand side).

Drop In Hours and Booking Appointments with Melinda

Starting on Monday, January 15th you have two options for meeting with me. You can either come to my drop in hours or book an appointment in advance. Drop in hours will be on Mondays from 12:00pm – 1:00pm and on Tuesdays from 11:30am – 12:30pm. These are hours where I will see students in the order they arrive during that time. Appointments are booked at least a day in advance and are booked by talking to Carie.

Reminder – Last Day to Add W18 Classes is January 12th

Please note that Friday, January 12th is the last day to add classes for Winter 2018. Permission to add late is not guaranteed as the policy states that permission will only be granted in exceptional circumstances (illness or compassionate grounds for missing all or part of the first three class days; interchanging courses with common lectures, one with and one without labs; late resolution of appeals; failure of a deferred course condition or examination; university errors in registration procedures), so please make sure you have all of your courses added by Friday. 

Drop In Hours for the First Week of Classes – Winter Semester

During the first week of classes (and the Thursday before classes start), I will be holding drop in hours to help answer questions you have about course selection. These are first come, first worked with, hours. Sign up sheets will be available just prior to the start of the drop in time. All drop in hours are held in Johnston Hall, room 133A (OAC Program Counselling Office).

Wednesday January 3, 2018 – Drop In 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Thursday January 4, 2018 – No availability

Friday January 5, 2018 – No availability

Weekly Drop in Hours Have Ended for Fall Semester

Weekly drop in hours have ended for the semester. They will resume January 15th, 2018. I am still available for appointments this week so please call Carie (ext 54800) to book an appointment. Carie is available during our open door hours (Mon-Thurs 10am-3pm, Fri 10am-12pm). 

Final Grades – Fall Semester

Final grades will be posted on WebAdvisor on Friday, December 22nd (through out the day as they are processed). 

Missed Final Assignment or Final Exam? – Fall Semester

If you have missed a final exam or a final assignment, please contact the Program Counselling Office (Johnston Hall, 133A or ext. 54800) to discuss your options. You have five working days after the missed exam or final assignment deadline to submit a request for a deferred privilege, so please contact the office as soon as you are able. If you are unable to contact the office due to extreme circumstances, please take care of yourself first and then contact the office.
