Course Selection – Winter 2018

Instructions for Undergraduate & Associate Diploma (Guelph Campus) Students

Course selection for Winter 2018 takes place from October 11 through to November 2, 2017, according to different windows. To determine your course selection window (i.e. when you'll be able to begin registering for courses), please refer to the tables below. Your course selection window is based on the last 2 digits of your 7 digit ID number and your class level, which was listed on the Course Selection Information email you were sent on October 2, 2017; your class level is also listed on your academic evaluation.

Note: You will be permitted to submit courses for registration, via WebAdvisor or in person at Enrolment Services, on the specific day assigned or on any day after that throughout the course selection period, up to and including Thursday, November 2, 2017.  If you have any questions about this process, please contact Enrolment Services at 519-824-4120 ext 58731.

You must use the paper process to register for any of your courses that have signature requirements (instructor consent, prerequisite/restriction waivers, course overload, etc.). Please submit the appropriately completed and signed Course Waiver Request form(s)once your window has opened, to Enrolment Services (UC level 3) for processing. Refer to our office hours.

If you have any questions about your program and/or the courses you should be taking, please refer to Chapter VII, Academic Advising, in the 2017-18 Undergraduate Calendar or the 2017-2018 Diploma Calendar for additional resource information.
