Course Registration - Fall Semester

Course Registration for the Fall Semester will open on August 19th at midnight. If you did not pay your $200 deposit on or before August 9th, your courses will be removed from your schedule. The Registrar's Office will begin this process the night of August 18th and will notify you via email on August 19th if you were deregistered from your courses. You must pay this deposit before you can add courses to your schedule again. It is your responsibility to add your courses back to your schedule on WebAdvisor. 

Missed a Final Exam or Final Assignment? - Summer 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 days after the missed exam or 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. 

Exams - Summer Semester

The Summer 2013 Final Examination Period runs from August 8th to August 16th.

You may view your final examination locations on WebAdvisor, on the Office of Registrarial Services website or on the hard-copy posting located at the Office of Registrarial Services on the third floor of the University Centre. 

If you miss an exam or are unable to complete a final assignment, please contact the Program Counselling Office. 

Reminder: $200 Deposit Due August 9th

Student Financial Services is your primary contact for payment deadlines, but August 9th must be highlighted: this is when your $200 deposit is due. It can not be stressed enough the importance of paying this deposit. The Registrar's Office will deregister you from your courses if you do not make this payment and there is no guarantee you will be able to get back into your courses once you pay the deposit. 

Fall Semester Add Period

The next opportunity to add courses to your fall schedule is on Monday, August 19th, 2013. This Add Period will remain open until Friday, September 13th, 2013. When selecting courses during this Add Period be sure to check for exam conflicts. Students must not enrol in courses with conflicting exams (exams which are at the same time on the same day). 

40th Class Day - Summer Semester

The last day to drop classes without academic penalty (the 40th class day) is Friday, July 5th, 2013 for the summer semester. Please contact your Program Counsellor before this date if you think you may need to drop a summer course.
