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 24th). 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 7th to March 29th. 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 26th, 2016 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).
All first year students are invited to join faculty advisors from all four majors to learn more about each major and the process of declaring your major.
This event will be held from 4:00pm-5:00pm on Thursday, February 4th in MacKinnon 031. Information about how to declare your major will be covered at the start of the meeting, so please plan to be there for 4:00pm. Attendance is not mandatory, but will be taken so I know who has received the information and who needs to seek it out on their own.
Drop in hours are cancelled for Monday January 25th and Tuesday January 26th. My sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. Drop in hours for next week will run as usual.
Starting on Monday, January 18th 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.
Please note that Friday, January 15th is the last day to add classes for Winter 2016. 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.
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).
