I just wanted to give a bit of insight into how first year courses are monitored by departments and how it conflicts with the time of day when many of you are selecting courses. Most of us leave work before 5:00pm; just when course selection is really getting started by students as you get home from school or work. This may sometimes means that spaces fill up overnight when students are selecting and staff members are not monitoring spaces in courses.
Welcome new students! Congratulations on your decision to join the University of Guelph family.
Any important news about course selection will be posted on this website, so please check back if you have a question to see if it is addressed here. If not, please contact Melinda Vanryn (email@example.com) with your questions.
For the Summer semester, our office doors will be open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10:00am-3:00pm. Appointments outside of these times can be made if they are arranged in advance by calling the office during our open door hours (ext. 54800). These hours will begin the week of May 15th. Please note that our office has limited staff this summer so there may be times when the office is closed during our posted open hours. Please check the announcements for up to date information about hours or call the office at extension 54800 to check current availability.
The first day of the Summer semester is Thursday, May 11th.
The next opportunity to add courses to your Fall and Summer schedule is on Wednesday, May 10th, 2017. This Add Period will remain open until Friday, May 19th, 2017. When selecting courses during this Add Period be sure to check for exam conflicts in the Summer semester. Students must not enrol in courses with conflicting exams (exams which are at the same time on the same day). The Fall semester exam schedule will be posted at a later date.
Weekly drop in hours will not be offered during the summer semester. The last day for weekly drop in hours will be Tuesday, April 25th (11:30am-12:30pm). If you would like to meet with Melinda during the summer, please call extension 54800 during our open door hours.
Grades will begin to be displayed on WebAdvisor starting on Friday, April 28th, 2017. They will continue to be updated on May 1st, 2017.
Please note that once a grade has been processed in the Office of Registrarial Services that course will no longer display on your “Class Schedule” or on your “Register and Drop Sections” screen on WebAdvisor. This may happen before grades are released.
If you have missed a final exam or a final assignment, please contact the Program Counselling Office (Johnston Hall, 133A or ext. 54800) during open door hours (Monday-Thursday 10:00am-3:00pm; Friday 10:00am-12:00pm) to discuss your options. You have five working days after the missed exam or final 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.
Please note that the last day of classes is April 7th and the exam period will begin on April 10th (ending April 24th). Good luck on exams!
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!
