Course Selection

All Students – Restrictions on First Year Courses Removed July 22nd at 12pm noon

The restriction on most first year courses will be removed July 22nd at 12pm noon. First years, this means spots will start to go very quickly! Upper years, the same for you; if you want a spot in a first year course, make sure you login on the 22nd. WebAdvisor will need to close to make these changes, so there will be no access the morning of the 22nd.

All Students – Restrictions on First Year Courses

Some first-year sections have been temporarily restricted to students who have 5.00 or less credits (completed, in progress, or pre-selected). Students who have more than 5.00 credits (completed, in progress, or pre-selected) who wish to enrol in a first-year course that is restricted, may be able to do so beginning at 12pm (noon) on July 22nd when most restrictions will be removed. See the full list of restricted courses on the restricted courses website

Fall 2019 Schedule is Posted

The Fall 2019 course schedule is now posted on WebAdvisor. 

Course selection for current students begins June 17th, 2019. Windows will be opened each day based on credit count. Check WebAdvisor for windows. 

Incoming students will be able to select starting June 26th, 2019. 

Note restrictions on first year courses will be in place (allowing only incoming high school students to select) until July 22nd, 2019. 

Courses can be added and dropped until September 13th, 2019.

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.

First Year Restrictions

Many first year courses will be restricted to first year students only. This is to ensure they are able to get their required courses. Restrictions on most first year courses will be removed November 23rd.

Courses affected are listed on the course restriction page.

Course Selection – Winter 2019

Course Selection for the Winter semester begins on November 5th, 2018. Your selection time will depend on your class level. Your class level is listed on your Program/Academic Evaluation (available on WebAdvisor). Your time to start signing up for courses will be provided to you by the Registrar's Office soon. It will also be listed on WebAdvisor (as an announcement on the Student page).

Windows will be opened from November 5th to November 14th. Course selection will remain open until January 11th, 2019.

Important dates:

Reminder – Last Day to Add F18 Classes is September 14th

Please note that Friday, September 14th is the last day to add classes for Fall 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. 

First Year Students – Full Courses

Courses are filling up quickly so if you are struggling finding sections that work, please contact our office by contacting Melinda (ext 54549, mavanryn@uoguelph.ca). Please note that most courses will not open new spaces on WebAdvisor, so please contact me asap. While you wait to hear from me, I also encourage you to keep checking on WebAdvisor in case there are spaces that become available. The schedules are in flux right now so you may find a section that works an hour after there were none!
