Undergraduate Course Selection

Psychology course waiver requests

Early registration is STRONGLY encouraged! Course selection opens up several months in advance of each semester (June for Fall, November for Winter). During course registration, you may find that a course you would like to register in is full. At times, a waiver can be granted to allow you to register.  

Course selection windows


My selection window opens tomorrow but a course I need is full.

The Department of Psychology utilizes rolling caps during course selection periods for Fall and Winter. This means that additional spots are added daily during the corresponding selection window, providing equal opportunity to students attempting to register, whether their course selection window opens on the first or the last day of their year. The additional spots are usually added between 8:00-9:00 am Monday-Friday, and so it is important to be monitoring Webadvisor carefully during that time period.
