- CIS courses are pretty much open. No more spots opening in the mornings. If you're having trouble finding space on WebAdvisor make sure you "page" to the second or third page of section results.
- If you were unable to add the CIS courses you need/want please email me. Greg cscouns at uog
- Some first year courses (not CIS) are restricted to students with 5.0 credits or less until August 3rd: First Year Restrictions
- Other electives might be restricted to majors and minors only. Please read how to declare a minor, and elective options for Computing students below:
Help with Fall 2021 Course Selection
Email Greg (email@example.com) the request (from your UofG email account) as:
Email subject: your last name, first name, student number, [minor you would like] Minor
Email body: Hello, My name is firstName lastname and my student number is studentNumber. I would like to declare a yourMinor minor.
Check the Registration Guide. WebAdvisor had an update so even returning students may need to skim the Tutorial. Add courses one at a time, starting with required CIS ones. Search results can have multiple pages of sections. You might have to "page" through them.
Most draft course outlines are available on the School of Computer Science Wiki. If you are having trouble logging in email firstname.lastname@example.org. Having read the course outline, if you have further questions about the course please email the professor.
Add a different elective for now and check back periodically to see whether the course has more space or the restriction was removed. For restricted courses you may need to declare a minor. Add a different elective for now, and check the Minor section below. If you don't know why you can't add the course email the professor or department. For Business courses the contacts are: B.Comm. Course Contacts.
Bachelor of Computing students in CS or SENG need to take some electives outside of computing. There are two options.
Minors. Minors are 5 credits (usually 10 courses) you take over your 8 academic semesters. These give a good foundation and introduction to the subject. They also go on your transcript, and are an officially recognized credential.
The other option is an Area of Application. This is for students who find minors too restricted and want more flexibility in choosing electives. It requires 8 courses in a subject other than CIS, 2 of those at the 3000 level. It’s unofficial, and not recognized on the transcript. It does let students combine subjects into a custom learning plan, for example Math and Music. Again, spread over the eight academic semesters.
If you’re not sure what you like, try a variety of subjects in first year, then start focusing on one starting in second year.

What happened to April?
April has moved to a different position within the University. She is now the Bachelor of Applied Science Program Counsellor.
I have a completely different question. Who can I ask?
