If a class or section you would like to take in the fall or summer semester is full, you can contact the instructor of the class to see if they are willing to overload the section you would like to take. There are many reasons why this might not be possible (not enough room in the lecture hall, not enough lab benches in a lab section, not enough resources for all students etc.), but if you do not ask, you do not give the instructor an opportunity to say yes.
Before and during the course selection time period, I am available for appointments and drop ins. 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 (available starting on February 23rd). 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.
Course Selection for the Summer and Fall semesters runs from March 2nd to March 23rd. Your selection time will depend on your ID number and semester level. Your semester level is listed on your Program/Academic Evaluation (available on WebAdvisor). Your time to start signing up for courses will be emailed to you by the Registrar's Office soon. It will also be listed on WebAdvisor.
For those of you who are going to complete your courses in April, you need to apply to graduate by February 13th, 2015 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 are cancelled for Tuesday, January 20th. My sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. Drop in hours for next week will run as usual.
Starting on Monday, January 12th 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.
Just a reminder that Friday, January 9th is the last day to add Winter 2015 classes. Please make sure you have all of your courses on WebAdvisor by the end of day on Friday.
During the first week of classes, 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).
The University will close on December 24th and reopen on January 5th. Please refer to the main uoguelph.ca webpage for further details.
Weekly drop in hours are finished for the semester. They will resume January 12th, 2015.
