Important Information for Undergraduate Fall'18 Course Selection

Undergraduate course selection opens for Fall’18 on June 18. At that time, course selection windows will open in order of credits from highest to lowest, and students will be able to select courses on Webadvisor without a waiver, provided that they meet the course prerequisites and requirements. 
Consideration for Psychology course waiver requests are not being accepted at this time for Fall’18. All Psychology course waivers are signed by Sharon Helder, Academic Advisor and Manager, and not the course instructor. 
Rolling caps are exercised in our department, meaning that you may see a limited number of seats available on Webadvisor, with additions made at regular intervals. This is done to ensure access to students throughout the add period in each course selection window, so that those who require a course have ample opportunity to register before the remaining seats are released. If a course that you wish to register in is full, keep checking for spots to open due to rolling caps or students rearranging their schedules.
Please submit your waiver request after July 4, 2018 to shelder@uoguelph.ca, at which time consideration will be given in the order received, based on eligibility requirements. 
Be sure to use your @uoguelph.ca email address in all communication, and include your student ID.
