Please note that Friday, September 18th is the last day to add classes for Fall 2015. 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.
Our colleagues in the BSc degree program have a website with start-up information for each of the first year science courses listed. These are some of the courses you may be taking: BIOL 1020 or 1050, CHEM 1040, MATH 1080, and PHYS 1300 or 1080. If you are registered in something other than what I have listed here, please talk to me. http://www.bsc.uoguelph.ca/getready.shtml
Please mark your calendars for Tuesday, September 8th for the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sciences Program Meeting. This is a MUST. The meeting starts at 1:00pm in MacNaughton Room 113. Staff, faculty and students will welcome you and give details about the Enviro Sci community as well as specific program information. This is definitely one of those things you don't want to miss! Of course Jill will be there...
