Graduation Applications – Fall Semester

All graduation applications have been processed. If you were not contacted by me, your application has been moved to "Tentative". This means you have all the correct courses and the right amount of credits; all that is left is for you to successfully complete your current courses and have a 60% cumulative average. Enjoy the rest of the semester and good luck on exams!

Weekly Drop In Hours Resume Today

Weekly drop in hours resume today. They will still be held every Monday from 12:00pm-1:00pm and Tuesday from 11:30am-12:30pm. This is when I am available on a first come, first served basis. To see me outside of these hours, please contact Carie by phone (ext 54800) or in person (Johnston Hall 133A) during our open door hours (Mondays to Thursdays 10:00am-3:00pm and Fridays 10:00am-12:00pm) to book an appointment.

Reminder – Drop in Hours and Appointment Times

As a reminder, I am available for appointments and drop ins during course selection. If you would like to sit down with me for an appointment please come to Johnston Hall 133A and sign up for a 15 minute time slot on the sheets provided. I ask that you only have one sign up time during this course selection period so others can have a chance to sign up as well. Please note that you must book your appointment time before we close the day before the appointment. No same day appointments will be booked unless it is an emergency.

Full Courses or Missing Prerequisite

Many courses are doing what is called “rolling enrollment”. This means they are opening spots throughout the course selection period with hopes of giving students with later selection windows equal opportunity to add courses. If a course is full and the cap looks suspiciously low (nothing is capped at 5!), they are likely using the rolling enrollment system.

Reminder – Thanksgiving Schedule

As a reminder, the University is closed Monday, October 10th for Thanksgiving. Tuesday, October 11th is a study break day and there are no classes. The Program Counselling Office will be open October 11th and operating on regular hours (10:00am to 3:00pm). Drop in hours for course selection will be held on October 11th from 11:30am-12:30pm.

Classes missed on October 10th will be held on Friday, December 2nd and will be a Monday schedule. Classes missed on October 11th will be held on Thursday, December 1st and will be a Tuesday schedule.

Drop In Hours and Booking Appointments with Melinda for Course Selection

Applying to Graduate

For those of you who are going to complete your courses in December, you need to apply to graduate by October 21st, 2016 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).
