Reminder - Last day to drop is Friday

Friday, March 22nd is the last day to drop a class without academic penalty. This means if you drop by this date, the course will not show on your transcript. If you want to discuss dropping a course, please come in and see me.

40th Class Day has been extended to March 22nd

Friday, March 22nd is the last day to drop a class without academic penalty. This means if you drop by this date, the course will not show on your transcript. If you want to discuss dropping a course, please come in and see me. Note that this is an extension from the original date of March 8th. Due to weather closures, the decision was made to extend the time (https://news.uoguelph.ca/2019/02/deadline-to-drop-courses-extended/).

Drop In Cancelled - Feb 21 and 22

Drop in hours for February 21st and February 22nd are cancelled. I am out of the office February 20th- 22nd (inclusive) and will not be on email during this time. 

Applying to Graduate

For those of you who are going to complete your courses in April, you need to apply to graduate by February 15th, 2019 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).

Reminder – Last Day to Add W19 Classes is January 11th

Please note that Friday, January 11th is the last day to add classes for Winter 2019. 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 Start of the Semester – Winter Semester

During the first week of classes (and the Thursday and Friday 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).
