Bachelor of Computing (B.Comp.)

Welcome to the Bachelor of Computing degree program! We are excited to welcome you to the University of Guelph.

Picking your courses for Semester 1 (Fall 2019):

As a B.Comp. student in Semester 1 you will select five courses (2.50 credits). Your required courses for Semester 1 are listed below by major:


Should you find that all sections of a required course are full, please contact your Program Counsellor (contact information below).


Advising Notes:

  • Review the Schedule of Studies (the order in which you are advised to take courses). Go to the B.Comp. degree program section of the Undergraduate Calendar and click on your major. Here you will find your degree laid out by semester, with listings of courses that are available for selection throughout your studies.
  • It is strongly recommended that you select your courses as soon as possible as popular course sections fill up quickly.
  • You will use WebAdvisor to pick your courses. Detailed instructions on using WebAdvisor are available in the WebAdvisor Tutorial.
  • As you make your class schedule, ensure there are no conflicts in your timetable.
  • Co-op Students: Students who are enrolled in a Co-op major are required to maintain a minimum 70% average in first year over two full-time academic semesters (minimum 4.00 credits) to be eligible to continue in the Co-op program.

Course Selection Tips:

  • Download the Class Schedule Worksheet to assist in creating your schedule.
  • Select courses that are more limiting (e.g., courses which have one lecture time) first and build the rest of your schedule around those times.
  • Distance Education (called DE) courses are an alternative way to take courses without meeting for regularly scheduled classes. All course content is presented online. You will find DE course times listed in WebAdvisor as TBA.
